Welcome

We the people of Good Shepherd extend to you the hospitality of Christ. We invite you to experience God’s love and grace as we do. Everyone is welcome. We are a lively cross+generational gathered people following Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World, and his teachings. We are committed to growing and sharing Vibrant Faith. We also love to laugh.

Holy Week

This Holy Week looks to be a wonderful worship journey with our Lord.  So much worship with such beautiful depth!  This is the story of Christ’s last week.  The invitation for you is to come and dwell (Bible meaning is “to pitch your tent”) in the mind of Christ in these next days.  This is the journey to “have the same mind that was in Christ Jesus…who emptied himself…taking the form of a servant…”  Philippians 2

Everyone is welcome to join us. Be a stranger, no more. Whether you are a member, friend, or visitor, you are welcome.

Mission

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations. In Community

  • To Love.
  • To Serve.
  • To Worship.

We are children of God. We are redeemed by God’s love. We believe we are called to respect all people, honoring age, race, heritage, gender, and economic status. We are called to share our gifts and work as partners with all our neighbors and those in far away places. We are called to come together in worship, relationships and service. In order to live a Vibrant Faith in all that we do, we covenant with one another to these spiritual practices.

The Four Keys to Vibrant Faith.

I will seek to practice

  • Caring conversations
  • Devotions
  • Service
  • Rites and Traditions
