Worship

Worship is an integral part of life at Good Shepherd. We are committed to growing spiritually by gathering each week for prayer, praise, and thanksgiving, and through lifelong learning. Whether it takes place virtually, indoors, or outdoors, worship remains central to Good Shepherd's community.

Our worship services give us an opportunity to sing praises to God, strengthen our bonds of friendship with one another, express our concerns for our friends, families, community, and the world through prayer, listening to God’s word and meditating on it. During worship, God comes to us through his gifts of Word and Sacrament.

What a joy to come before God with our songs of praise and our prayer. Come experience that joy with us.
