Church of the Good Shepherd

The Episcopal Church in Rangeley, Maine

From Bishop Brown

Effective immediately, based on the Bishops recommendation, there will be no Sunday Service at the Church of the Good Shepherd until further notice!

Every faith community in the Diocese of Maine should suspend in-person worship, formation programs, and governance meetings until further notice (as of today, the Centers for Disease Control recommends against gatherings of 50 or more for the next eight weeks). However, we are not closing our churches: in fact, I encourage our congregations to explore options for providing limited access to our buildings for individual and private prayer (within the safe parameters of CDC guidelines).

Episcopal Church Women

Our mission as Episcopal Church Women (ECW) is to provide opportunities for fellowship among the women of Good Shepherd while serving God and the Church through a variety of activities.

We are an active and vital part of Good Shepherd. Our group of women meets every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. in the Undercroft to work on yearly planning of fairs, and the Thrift Shoppe. Major projects include the year-round Thrift Shoppe, and an annual Christmas Craft Fair.

The ECW:

  • organizes food for funeral receptions, church events and visits from the Bishop;
  • gives gifts at confirmations and holidays;
  • keeps in touch with fellow parishioners through anniversary, birthday, get well and sympathy cards;
  • gives generously to community members, organizations including Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice, The Center for Wisdom’s Women, The Giving Tree, The Seamen’s Church Institute, Wounded Warrior Project, WRGY Radio and missions; and
  • awards the annual Louise Doak Scholarship to a graduating Rangeley Lakes Regional School High School Senior.

New members are welcome. Please contact Ivy Berry through the church office (207.864.3381) if you are interested in sharing your talents as a member of the ECW.
