At Good Shepherd, we want you to feel welcome and enjoy the hospitality we offer to others because God has welcomed us through Christ. Part of feeling welcome is knowing what to expect.
On most Sundays, we worship at 9:30 with a traditional, liturgical service. This means worship follows a pattern that includes gathering; God’s Word, including readings from the bible and a message from the pastor; Holy Communion, and sending into the world to do God’s work. Readings from the bible, the sermon, and the music for worship reflect the themes of the seasons of the year. For more information on the seasons of the church year, see http://www.elca.org/growing-in-faith/worship/planning.aspx.
On the second Sunday of the month, we gather for praise worship. This worship opportunity has music led by our band and offers a more intimate, informal experience.
Worship typically lasts about an hour. The order of worship, including the day’s readings and hymns are in the bulletin the ushers distribute as you come in.
We welcome everyone who is baptized to join us for communion at the table where Christ is host.
