Since March 2020, Good Shepherd worship services have been happening online. We meet on Facebook Live at 9:00 am on Sundays for greetings and fellowship before “meeting” on YouTube for pre-recorded worship including confession, prayers, readings, hymns and special music. You can find more information at our Online Together page.
“You are not just a worshiper at Good Shepherd. You are part of a caring and compassionate family of fellow believers.”Nancy McCowen
We are currently worshiping online each week. When we do meet in-person, on Sundays at 9 a.m., worship includes traditional or blended liturgy with a sermon, children’s sermon, hymns and special music at all services and Holy Communion at select services. Our facilities are wheel chair accessible with reserved seating in the sanctuary.
At Good Shepherd we practice open communion. We believe in the real presence of Jesus Christ in the elements of bread and wine. In the gospels we meet Jesus, God’s Son, who ate with sinners and welcomed all. You are welcome at this, the Lord’s Table. Children who commune in their home congregations are welcome to commune at this church. Children who do not receive communion are encouraged to come forward with hands folded to receive a blessing.
Music & Choir
Our choir is an integral part of our Worship service throughout the school year, rehearsing every Wednesday evening at 7pm in the Choir room and singing at the 9am worship each week. Bell choir practices and plays at special services throughout the year. Choir and Bell Choir welcome new members.
Children in Worship
Children are welcome and encouraged to attend worship with their families. Children are invited to come forward weekly for the Children’s Sermon and will receive a weekly devotional activity sheet. Small bags of quiet activities are available outside of the sanctuary for those who need extra pew activities.
The nursery is available for families with young children who would like to utilize it during worship. Plenty of toys, coloring books, and a toddler-sized bathroom are available for your children while you worship. At least one adult volunteer is in the nursery and additional volunteers help out when needed.
We offer Sunday School classes for preschool aged youth up through adults starting at 10:15 am for the spiritual enrichment and education of all.
