The Campus Community


WELCOME TO THE EPISICOPAL CHURCH OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD!
Whoever you are and wherever you are on your journey of faith,
we welcome you.


The Church of the Good Shepherd is one of three Ohio Episcopal parishes that were built to serve a campus. The Church's music program is among the best in the diocese, and engages professors and students with townspeople on a weekly basis. The Church provides a free lunch every Wednesday to students and residents alike. Through it's different outreach ministries, the parish strives to meet immediate needs, to remove the root causes of injustice, to encourage forms of community that transcend divisions in our society, and to strenghten fellowship and spirititual growth. We invite your ideas and participation.

Wednesday community lunch

Each Wednesday from noon to 1:00, a crew from Good Shepherd serves an excellent meal to over 75 people. This ministry began in the late 90's by an energetic college student, Molly Gilbert. With a desire to serve, she simply began feeding peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to anyone in need of a free meal. Today that spark has been carried on by the parish as a whole. We have four teams who take one week of the month. There are many volunteer opportunities, from cooking and chopping up food to serving the meal and cleaning up.

If you would like to help please show up at the parish kitchen downstairs around 10 a.m. or contact Phyllis Dean at 740-593-8487.

Are you Whovian?
Friday, Nov 16, from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm, we will be watching Asylum of the Daleks, a fast paced adventure exploring how to resist hate, how love can conquer hate, and the terrible cost of holding on to hate. We'll hear what our Presiding Bishop says as well exploring the theology of love and hate. We hope you leave with plenty of food for thought about how to live when feeling pressured to respond to the events in the world with anger and hate. A delicious and simple dinner is included.
