Membership at Good Shepherd is simple but profound. Any person whose baptism is recorded in our parish ledger, who regularly attends worship, and who is a contributor of record is a member of this church.
Members are expected to move on to greater commitments of ministry and discipleship reflected in the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist explained below. We are truly glad to have guests and visitors “swim along” with us as long as they like. When you are ready to become bonifide members of our parish, we ask that you contact the office/clergy to have your baptism recorded in our ledger, request your own coded offering envelopes, and meet with our clergy and staff so that they can assist you in finding ministry opportunities that inspire you.
If you have already been Confirmed or Received into the Episcopal Church, we will send for your Letter of transfer from your former parish.
