Dear friends,

First of all, we, your 2023 Junior and Senior Vestry Wardens, want to take the opportunity to thank you for this extraordinary year. We have been privileged to witness firsthand the generosity and faithfulness of spirit that is Good Shepherd and that each of you bring to this sacred place. From coming together in times of grief or difficulty, supporting one another through illness and other hardships, to worshiping together on weekdays and Sundays, and enjoying one another’s fellowship at Shepherd’s Night Out, Supper Clubs, and Parish Camp, this is a community of extraordinary people doing their best to live out Jesus’s message to us to love God and one another. We are deeply grateful for you all.

As we look ahead to 2024, the two of us and our families, along with the rest of your Vestry, are prayerfully considering our pledges for the coming year and we invite you to do the same. All pledges, whatever their size, help Good Shepherd’s staff and Vestry develop the coming year’s budget, ensuring that we continue to be good stewards of your gifts. Your pledge makes Good Shepherd’s many ministries, programs, events, and outreach efforts possible.

Please consider returning your pledge card or pledging online at or via the QR code listed below as soon as possible. If you have any questions or would like to have a conversation with either of us, our contact information is listed below – please do not hesitate to reach out to either of us.

Thank you again for your generosity and for being part of the Good Shepherd church community. God Bless.
