Worship in person may take a hiatus, but hunger doesn’t. Since we aren’t yet gathering in person for worship, our weekly food offerings haven’t been collected. So, in the interim, on the second Sunday of each month, we will assemble all food offerings that GSLC members and friends have dropped off at the church over the prior four weeks. Drop it off anytime you like – if Pastor or another staff person isn’t in the office, you can leave it in the doorway and we’ll get it inside when we arrive.

To join this ZOOM meeting please email Pastor Mark with you name and email address. He can be reached at pastor@GoodShepherdWoodbridge.org and will send additional instructions on bible study. This will be a 4 week bible study offered on two dates, beginning Sunday, August 23 at 8:00 PM and Tuesday, August 25 at 7:30 PM.

Join the Iota Epsilon Sigma Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, as we host our 2020 Annual YoutJoin the Iota Epsilon Sigma Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, as we host our 2020 Annual Youth Symposium “Elevating Our Youth: Civically, Socially and Physically”

Saturday, March 14, 2020 Fred Lynn Middle School. Woodbridge, VA 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

The Symposium is just one initiative of our national signature program, Project Reassurance, which has incorporated the theme of “H3: It’s All About Me – Healthy Choices, Healthy Living, Healthy Generations.”

We live in a time in which protecting our youth is imperative to survival. Equipping the youth with the skills and competencies to not only advocate for themselves but also their peers is important. For parents and guardians, it is important to know and understand what affects the youth, and to be able to support and advocate on their behalf is also important. The goal of the symposium is to create dialogue, have opportunities for youth to connect to community resources, and to provide inspiration for making positive and long-last change.

Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., is a non-profit organization with the aim to enhance the quality of life within the community. Public service, leadership development and the education of youth are hallmarks of the organization’s programs and activities.
