Fairfax County Church Says Sign is About Being a Good Neighbor

“The roadside sign says we’re the Church of the Good Shepherd. That’s only part of the story. We also really try to be the Church of the Good Neighbor.

As a small Methodist church in suburban Virginia, we face the multiple challenges of distinguishing ourselves as constructive members of a small community, as a center of great activity as well as a place of refuge and renewal. In effect, we’ve created a small ministry to help accomplish what we could call the Good Neighbor Initiative.

Truth to tell, we’ve been in the news lately with our new technology because Fairfax County officials questioned how frequently the messages on a fancy new electronic sign should change. (The county has agreed to give us more discretion).”
