Welcome to Church of the Good Shepherd

Over a Century of Service

Past Ministries

The Parish House was used as a hospital during the deadly 1918 flu epidemic.  In 1980, a soup kitchen was opened in the Parish House.  For 21 years this mission, with the addition of employment, laundry and health facilities for the homeless, served 875,000 meals before it evolved in 2001 into the present independent Good Shepherd Center, which has continued this outstanding outreach to the poor, hungry and homeless in Wilmington.

Current Ministries

The annual Blessing of the Animals continues having begun here in 1960s and thought to be the first in the city.  Recently, we have been working to better the lives of migrant farm workers to our west. In our own neighborhood, we provide weekly Bible study at the Rescue Mission of Cape Fear on 5th and Castle Street. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to live in unity and fellowship with God and each other.

Looking Forward

 At the corner of 6th & Queen, Church of the Good Shepherd will continue its mission to serve God in this community with grateful, gracious, generous hearts. 

Our Vision

Our vision for the way we believe we are called to live out that mission includes celebrating the mystery of Christ with a spirit of abundance and gratitude, welcoming and honoring all who show up and reaching beyond ourselves to serve.
