ACH Giving

Thank you for you continued support of Good Shepherd’s missions and ministries! We are so Blessed to have a congregation of faithful stewards. With over 1650 households, we have 195 who have decided to make their contributions electronically. We are looking to grow that number 10%, by the end of the year. Prayerfully consider this as a viable option. This can be achieved by contacting the office, visiting our website or app to sign up. For more information please contact Melanie at melanie@goodshepherdbismarck.com.

 Why Should One Serve?

Service is when we care for one another from the skills God has given each of us.  At GSLC, you have many opportunities to serve in the church and community.  You can connect with the opportunities to serve in worship and hospitality by using the electronic sign-up on the website under Worship and Get Involved/Caring Ministries, Worship or Special Events.  Use the app, our website or the Sign-Up Central computer in the Narthex. All of these activities are opportunities for us to serve Christ’s church with joy. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Erin Magelky at erin@goodshepherdbismarck.com or Pastor Julie at julie@goodshepherdbismarck.com.  We are working on tools to connect youu with your call to service, so be on the lookout in the near future for these tools.
