Gatekeepers Workcamp began at Lakeside Baptist Church in 1992 as a missions partnership between a consortium of Rocky Mount churches. In 2018, the twenty-sixth consecutive year of Gatekeepers Workcamp, approximately 100 youth and nearly 60 adults participated from thirteen area churches. This year, Gatekeepers provided assistance by renovating eight homes for elderly and disabled homeowners in our community.
As in all previous years, Good Shepherd had several youth and adults participate. In addition, it has become tradition that the Gatekeepers Workcamp crews gather in the Good Shepherd parish hall for their lunch.
We give thanks to God for the work completed, for the relationships founded, and for the love shared.
