Boiler Sheep

Good-Bye !

Please come to help us honor the Rev. Peter Bunder on his retirement, and to celebrate his 34 years of ministry to Good Shepherd.

Peter will preach and preside at his final service on Sunday, August 4, 2019, at 10:00 am.

Immediately following the service, join us for a celebratory meal at the church to tell stories and break bread.

There will be a second chance to celebrate with Peter when the students are back.  Details TBA.

Your presence would be a wonderful gift for Peter.  If you plan to attend the reception on August 4, RSVP to Mark Thomas at

We’re compiling a remembrance book to present to Peter.  If you have notes or pictures that you would like to include, please bring or mail them to the church, or send them to Kevin Edmundson at

Feel free to share this invitation via social media!

What is “Workship”?

What’s “Workship”?  We’ll gather at Food Finders, where we’ll be assigned a variety of tasks for 45 minutes to an hour (usually sorting, repackaging, or labeling food), and we’ll conclude with a brief form of the Holy Eucharist.  Good Shepherd tries to schedule a Workship service at Food Finders two or three times a year.

There will be no Sunday School on September 30.  The 7:00 pm service will be at the church, as scheduled.

Good Shepherd on YouTube!


Here are the two Good Shepherd videos (one five minutes, one one minute) from our “Workship” service at Food Finders on November 4, 2012.  The videos were produced by Charles Renne of Underproduction Multi-Media, with the cooperation of Kathy Copas in the diocesan office.
