Welcome to LCGS
Worship in person
Masks are recommended. This policy will honor our love and care for each other, and respect for this very serious pandemic.
We strongly urge you to be cautious about coming to on-site worship if you are compromised or fragile in health in any way (even though you are indeed mighty in spirit). If you are at all hesitant to come, due to any number of common-sense factors, we encourage you to stay home instead and watch Family-to-Family Worship online:
May God’s richest blessings, peace, healing, and protection surround you all!
Sunday Worship Times:
Traditional – 9:30 am
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises. (Psalm 98:4)
Worship is the very heartbeat of our life together, grounded in God’s Word through liturgy and song, awakening the spirit. Worship is where we meet the risen Christ, who is present and speaking his Word of love, grace, and forgiveness to all, and who gives us his body and blood in Holy Communion. Above all else is what Christ brings to us!
First Time Here?
We want to connect with you.
Here at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, music is a part of our life together. LCGS church enjoys a reputation of maintaining a strong music ministry. Our various musical groups are directed by creative Christian leaders who are dedicated to growing in Christ, sharing the Word and caring for all. Good Shepherd’s music staff and ensembles enjoy wonderful support and proclaim all the Glory to God!
Spirit Alive brings Praise and Worship music to the sanctuary of LCGS every third Sunday. The Choir leads the singing while the Ensemble provide leading accompaniment.
Rehearsals on the Tuesdays before the third Sunday. Meet in the evenings at 7:30 p.m. All are welcomed to join.
Each Sunday, we are nourished in God’s word and sacrament and celebrate God’s many blessings. So too, are we empowered to bless others, to be sent out with what we have received.
We here at Good Shepherd know that daily we are being prepared to share and serve the good news and hope we have in the love of God through God’s Son, Jesus Christ.
Blue Hope Stones are God’s love for you: blue is the color of Hope. Remember the stone was rolled away from the tomb on that first Easter morning. It was a visible sign of the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead. These small stones remind us that “Jesus is our Rock,” our solid foundation stones, and that the hope of God will never fail us.
The members are invited to take one at any time and carry it as a reminder that God’s hope is with them. When the Spirit moves them to pass it on to someone else who needs that reminder, they give the stone to that someone, blessing them with hope.
We will pray for all and the travels of our Good Shepherd Hope Stones.
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; you save me from violence. I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.”
(2 Samuel 22:2-4)
“The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock.”
“…and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank from the spiritual rock that followed them, and the rock was Christ.”
(1 Corinthians 10:4)
