Worship Services are taking place at 8:00 and 10:30 am. 
If you think you can't make it to church safely, we invite you to say Morning Prayer at 8:00 or 10:30 so that even if we're not in the same place, we can still worship together as a parish. 
For 8:00 a.m.: Morning Prayer, Rite I, begins on page 41 of the Book of Common Prayer. 
 For 10:30 a.m.: Morning Prayer, Rite II, begins on page 79 of the Book of Common Prayer.
The scripture lessons are Psalm 72:1-7,10-14, Isaiah 60:1-6, and Matthew 2:1-12.

The Book of Common Prayer is available online here.



140 Beehives destroyed - Conetoe needs your help


As recently reported by the Rocky Mount Telegram, hurricane Matthew destroyed 140 beehives and bees, which resulted in a severe setback for the educational youth programs associated with the Conetoe Family Life Center, founded by the Rev. Richard Joyner. The beekeeping and garden activities create a practical classroom for the scientific, economic and social skills that are necessary in today’s society.


“Beehives for Conetoe” is a joint effort of area churches and other organizations to support the beehive operation. Our current mission is to first replace the 140 beehives lost during Hurricane Matthew, and over the next two years to add 300 beehives to stabilize the program and provide for continued growth.

The cost to replace one beehive is $225.00 including bees. Any donation no matter how large or small will be appreciated. All money donated will go toward the purchase of beehives and bees. Should there be an abundance of honey at the end of the season, it will be distributed among participating churches and organizations.


To donate, please make a check out to the Church of the Good Shepherd, memo “Beehives for Conetoe" or give online.
