A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time.

He said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.”

Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep.”

John 21:17

The Church of the Good Shepherd representatives serve on the board of Casa de Amor, a facility for young women without families in Palomas, Chihuahua, Mexico. The parish as a whole and individual members sponsor scholarships for Palomas children so that they can attend secondary school.

Good Shepherd has a sister congregation in Palomas: Elim Assembly of God Church. We visit one another — sharing our visions, praying for one another, and enjoying fellowship.

Good Shepherd is a partner with Cafe Justo, selling coffee from Mexico that has been grown by cooperative members while preserving the rain forests and that has been roasted by the cooperative. Churches across America serve and sell Cafe Justo, thereby promoting the economic success of Chiapas families.

The parish owns two rental properties next to the church building.  These units have affordable rents and are HUD-approved.  We offer three memorial scholarshipsendowed through investment from these rental properties.  A second investment from them goes to the Instrument Maintenance Fund, which is used to maintain the church’s pipe organ.

The Parkhurst Concert Series is an endowed fund that sponsors three to four concerts per year, held at the Church of the Good Shepherd.  The purpose of the recital series is to bring glory to God by bringing chamber music to the community on a regular basis, and by acquainting the community with its own musicians.
