Food abounds in the Good Shepherd Restaurant, featuring homemade soups, sandwiches for breakfast and lunch and more! Take out service is also available. A variety of delicious holiday favorite homemade baked goods will also be offered and our popular cookies by the pound offer is returning.

Bargains galore can be found in the Christmas Store, the Dollar Store and the More than a Dollar Store featuring new and gently used holiday decorations, household items, gifts and trinkets. A limited supply of fresh wreaths and grave blankets will be available for sale, but come early as they are always a sell-out.

The Good Shepherd Choir will be performing throughout the day to entertain shoppers. With caroling, the smell of soups and baked goods, and the colors of Christmas abounding, you’ll really get into the spirit of the season!

Rumor is a special visitor from the North Pole may be stopping by and is looking forward to posing for pictures.
