Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church

Committees

Building and Grounds Committee

Christian Education Committee

The Christian Education Committee continues to provide opportunities for God's people to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.  This is accomplished primarily through the classes offered for all ages through our Sunday School.  Curriculum offered by Great Commission Publications is used for kindergarten through junior high.  The high school, college and career, and adult curriculum are decided upon by the committee and the individuals teaching those classes.  The committee also often sponsors a weekend seminar in the fall.  All members of Good Shepherd are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities to grow in their knowledge of the Christian faith and to discuss with other Christians varied aspects of the Christian life.

Chair: Mike Owens

Hospitality and Fellowship Committee

This committee plans monthly events to encourage the fellowship among its members and to invite friends and neighbors to these activities.  They also plan baby showers and "Welcome to the Family" celebrations.  The committee assembles visitor packets for greeters to give to families and individuals who are visiting our church.  Funerals and special services are also ways in which this committee serves our members and their families.

Chair:  Sharon Lauer

Missions and Evangelism Committee

The Missions Committee assists our church-supported missionaries in Northwest Indiana, throughout the United States, and around the world through prayer, encouragement, and financial support.  To encourage our missionaries and to educate and inspire our church community, we offer regular prayer updates on the missionaries, host visits with missionaries, and provide opportunities to serve in missions.  In all these things, we pray that God would be glorified and His kingdom will grow.

Chair:  Luke McAuley

Worship Committee

The Worship Committee seeks to promote God centered and God honoring worship at Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church.  As creatures made in the image of God, we are made to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.  The committee's desire is that worship at Good Shepherd should always remain biblically based and focused on the glory and enjoyment of God.  The committee is involved in the evaluation of the church's worship while seeking to enhance future worship.  The committee gives oversight to the children's bible time that takes place during the morning worship service.  The committee also plans special seasonal worship services such as Christmas and Easter.

Chair:  Rick Greene
