Care & Support

Stephen Ministry

Caring for others through a one-on-one caring ministry to those who are experiencing transition or difficulties in life, Stephen ministers are trained lay people that provide Christian caregiving in a confidential, non-judgmental caring relationship. They are committed to providing a listening and supportive environment to those in need of care. Learn more about Stephen Ministry. 

Helping Hands

Helping Hands supplements existing informal helping networks within the church community, seeking to serve using the Biblical model of Martha, the sister of Mary and Lazarus. In every Biblical reference, Martha is doing something practical (Luke 10:40a, John 11:20, 28, 29; 12:2a). Likewise, Helping Hands is an active and confidential aid within our church family and provides meals, transportation, grocery shopping, errands, telephone calls, visits, greeting cards, caregiver “time outs” and more during times of need. Contact the Helping Hands team at for help or to serve. Learn more about Helping Hands Ministry at Good Shepherd.

Eucharistic Ministry
