Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd is a community of faith, brought together by God to love, serve and worship together in Hazelwood.
We are a friendly and joyful bunch of people who believe in God who created us in love. We believe Jesus our Savior, died for our sins and redeemed us. We believe the Holy Spirit carries us through, guides us and showers us with God’s blessings. We believe all three are the Only One And True God.
We believe Jesus is the host of our table and share in His Communion
We celebrate our salvation in worship each Sunday with a traditional service, a Kid Friendly service and monthly we celebrate with the Spirit Alive Band.
We believe scripture is the Word of God. The Bible is the basis of our understanding.
We encourage small children, young adults, parents, adults, and seniors to join in worship. We believe all have gifts and contribute to a better home for all of us.
We know there are many in the world hurting and in need. We do what we can to help. We participate in many service activities, for the homeless, children and food pantries for the hungry. We also have a group that helps with light jobs around the house, such as cleaning the gutters, raking leaves, and disposing of old paint and electronics.
We enjoy working together with our friends, neighbors and the people around us. We strive to reflect the love that God has given us through His son.
We also know how to have a good time. We enjoy picnics, butterflies in summer, train rides in the woods, campouts. We enjoy each other’s company and share openly with newcomers and visitors.
We share with our neighbors, blessing pets, teaching children in the summer, and trunk-r-treat in the fall. Our doors are open to everyone.
We love to share our lives and our talents. Home cooked dinners, telling stories, skits at Christmas, and music all year long with contemporary and traditional music. We make a joyful noise together.
