Good Shepherd Church Pasadena and its openly gay Pastor Rev.Rick Eisenlord have launched a 3 prong effort to provide services and programs to an underserved LGBTQpopulation in Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley. This effort includes (1) the establishment of a LGBTQScholarship Fund to enable high school students to continue their education beyond high school, whether itis a trade school, 2 or 4 year college; (2) the establishment of the first gay and lesbian Center in the SanGabriel Valley, providing much needed services to the LGBTQ Community; and (3) observance of WorldAIDS Day on Dec. 1, 2011 with a mass choir and the largest exhibition of AIDS Memorial Quilts in SouthernCalifornia.Pastor Eisenlord commented, “It is one thing for a church to say it is ʻwelcomingʼ to the LGBTQCommunity, but it is an entirely different matter to have that same church go beyond the confines ofits sanctuary and proactively participate in LGBTQ activities. That is precisely where Good ShepherdChurch Pasadena is different from other churches: we are aggressive in our outreach to the LGBTQCommunity. We donʼt wait for someone to walk in the front door of the church to show them Godʼsgrace, love and acceptance. We are out there proactively engaging the LGBTQ Community on avariety of important and crucial levels.”For further information, you can go to www.GoodShepherdPasadena.com or email rickeisenlord@mac.comor call Pastor Eisenlord at 213-631-0373.About Good Shepherd Church PasadenaGood Shepherd Church Pasadena is a congregation of full inclusion.
