We like hanging out together at Good Shepherd. We join supper clubs, turn out in droves for parish breakfasts, and swing from the trees at Family Camp. We gather to discuss books together at each others’ homes, we celebrate Mardi Gras boisterously (and with lots of bacon), and we turn our parish hall into a movie house on Sunday summer nights. Join us!
Shepherd’s Night Out
On Wednesday evenings throughout the school year, Eucharist is offered at 5:30 p.m. (IN THE CHAPEL). Delicious meals, prepared by chef Margaret Johnson, are offered for $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 2yrs-11yrs), with a family maximum of $25. Take a night off from cooking; take the time for good food and conversation with friends and family! Make this the one night a week you know you will eat together as a family. Supper is followed by 40 minute programs for adults, little ones (infants, toddlers and children under 6), elementary-age kids and youth. Please join us for this midweek oasis in your busy lives!
Good Shepherd Parish Retreat
Every September our church family gathers for a weekend at Camp Skyline in Mentone, AL. We make s’mores, play games, do ropes courses, ride zip lines, canoe, kayak, sit on the porch for a spell, share meals and stories, worship outdoors and get to know each other better. Parishioners and their guests are welcome to join us all weekend, for one night or just for the day on Saturday. Save the date: 2017 TBA. Contact email@example.com to sign up or for more information.
Every fall parishioners have the opportunity to sign up for a supper club. The supper club committee puts together clubs of 10-12 people who will gather for meals together six times between October and May. Clubs set mutually agreeable meeting times and usually meet at each other’s homes, but sometimes schedule gatherings at local restaurants. Supper clubs are a great way to get to know new people and to turn acquaintances into lifelong friends. Supper clubs are open to all adults in the church.
Young Adult Supper Club
Young adults of the church gather frequently to share meals and get to know each other. You may ask, just who is a young adult? Anyone who calls themselves one! Folks just out of college, newlyweds, new parents, older parents of young children – all are welcome! Please contact The Rev. Mac Brown as firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the email group so you won’t miss out on events!
Summertime Family Movie Nights
Every other Sunday evening from mid-June through Mid-August we have family movie night in Talbird Hall from 6-8 p.m. We show movies appropriate for all ages on the big screen. We fire up the popcorn machine, order pizzas and everyone brings their own beverages and chairs (often bean bags, sleeping bags, pillows and the like). For more information: email@example.com
