Community Volunteer Opportunities

Good Shepherd's ministries and missions are still happening, though they look a bit different these days.

We've identified a few ways our church family can help make an immediate impact in our local community.

Support the Ladies at Dove’s Nest with donations through the month of July. Dove’s Nest is the Women’s Recovery Center which is part of Charlotte Rescue Mission. We will have a donation bin outside of the church lobby Monday – Thursday for the following items only:
