Current Service Opportunities

Garden Work -The Lord has blessed our church with land to help those in need. Last year, the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church garden provided thousands of pounds of produce to local food banks. How did this happen? Through the Lord's gracious blessings and people spending an hour or so, once a week, working at the garden.  No experience is necessary and all are welcome to join in this important ministry to the community.  For more information, call the church office at 814-234-8177 or contact Gary at gswiest4@gmail.comGarden work is finished for the season.  Check back next Spring for planting information and work sessions.

Service Through Sewing:  A group making quilts/fleece blankets for refugees, dresses for girls in Africa and other sewing projects occurs every other Saturday morning from 8 am to noon. Come and go when you can. Fabric is provided. The blankets and quilts for refugees will be donated through Lutheran World Relief. Contact or for information.  No experience required!  Next dates are March 3 and 17.
