We are the Church of the Good Shepherd - named after Christ, the shepherd and guardian of all. He knows his sheep, calling us all by name, and doesn't rest until He gathers all lost sheep to him.

When asked to describe our parish, the words people most often use are warm, friendly, hospitable, and inclusive. And let's not forget fun. We enjoy getting to know each other and get together often.

It is the spiritual dimension, however, that draws people to Good Shepherd and the reason why they stay. In Good Shepherd we find food for spiritual growth and renewal, through the liturgy and the sacraments, through service to others, and an opportunity to be with God in the presence of others.

Good Shepherd offers a spiritual home - a faith community where you can worship, serve others, and grow in the knowledge and love of God.

"Cooking for Our Neighbors" on August 11 - Good Shepherd's 4th annual "Cooking for Our Neighbors" volunteer day is Saturday, August 11! We'll be teaming up with Susan Callahan's "Campus Kitchens" program at the Universities at Shady Grove once again to prepare lunches and hot dinners for residents of the MCCH emergency shelter in Rockville and the Wells/Robertson House, a transitional residence for homeless families in Gaithersburg. We will carpool from church at 9 AM for the 30-minute drive to Shady Grove - or you can meet us there at 9:30 AM. A full morning of fun, camaraderie, and sampling delicious food is guaranteed! Following our cooking extravaganza we'll return to Good Shepherd around lunchtime.

We need 20 volunteers to make it happen. Last year Good Shepherd turned out in force and we can do it again! Please contact Shaun Hardy (shardy@ciw.edu) to sign up.
