Sanctuary Refresh:
During Summer and fall 2018, the Good Shepherd sanctuary is being refreshed in time for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the church in November.  The walls and ceiling will be painted, the wood (pews, altar rail, pulpit, font) will be refinished, lights and windows will be repaired and replaced, the woven wall hangings will be cleaned, and new choir chairs will be purchased. New carpet is in the plan as well but may be installed after all renovations to the building are complete.  ***Please note: While this work is being done, we may need to have a few Sunday services outside of the sanctuary, likely in the Fellowship Hall. We will be in touch about this as the work progresses.***

Photos of the sanctuary ‘work-in-progress’ can be viewed on this website on the flickr pages (use this link or access from the homepage).
