Men’s & Women's Fellowship
The Church of the Good Shepherd offers several ways for men to get together, grow in faith and friendship, and have a little fun at the same time. Check out the following programs and find the right fit for you.
Men’s Life Fellowship
This discussion-based group focuses on building community, fellowship, and discussion of real issues in men’s lives. This course is a practical introduction to the Christian faith with the opportunity to explore Christianity without being intimidated to ask the difficult questions.
This group offers encouragement and support for your daily life. Now is a great time to join this group and share in fellowship and wisdom. Come to share or come just to listen!
Men’s Life Fellowship also organizes fun, energetic activities outside of the book study and will publicize them to the congregation as they draw near. Be looking for announcements of fishing tournaments, skeet shoots, golf tournaments and more.
Meets Tuesday mornings at 7:00-8:00 a.m. in the Parlor at the Church of the Good Shepherd.
Men’s Book Study Group
This discussion-based group focuses on theological reflection and current affairs in the context of a book study. This is the group that covers all the great questions and dilemmas of the universe, and learns more about each other in the process. This is an ongoing study that will continue with a new book selection after they have finished discussing the current book. Weekly readings are involved in this study.
Meets Tuesdays at noon, in the Munds Hall Library at the Church of the Good Shepherd.
Tuesday Night Basketball
This is no ordinary Church league basketball team. It is a rag-tag, multi-generational, competitive mix of men who think they’ve still got it. Actually some of them do. Come out for a fun-filled, a little irreverent, call-your-own fouls kind of game and show us what you’ve got.
Meets Tuesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in the McNeil Gymnasium at the Church of the Good Shepherd.

Good Shepherd Egg Ladies
The “Egg Ladies” work in fellowship year round to make and sell decorative Easter eggs made from real egg shells. Many ladies gather weekly to paint, glue, cut, sew, and draw. The “Egg Ladies” have been selling these works of art for over 60 years, and a collection has been on exhibit at the Art Museum of South Texas. Their work is not only real artistry, but effective fundraising. The egg sales have raised substantial funds which have been donated to mission work throughout the community and the world.
