Good Shepherd Church Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What are your worship services like?

    There are several styles of worship available to you.

    Saturday evening at 5:00 pm is Informal Blended worship, a more casual service of prayer and preaching; a blend of new and old favorite songs and hymns plus a Biblical, life-related teaching. Sunday morning at 8:30 am is classic, traditional Lutheran worship with Lutheran liturgy, hymns, and Biblical, life-related teaching. There are children's activity bags at the back of the sanctuary for your child's use during the services.

    We have a Contemporary Praise service at 10:00 am, contemporary worship and praise music and Biblical, life-related teaching. During the 10:00 am service we have a staffed nursery for children from birth to three years old. Children in preschool through 6th grade are invited to attend our Sunday School classes. Classrooms are labeled by age/grade and are located in the East end of the building. The music for this service is led by New Sound, Good Shepherd's praise band. The first Sunday of every month is Family Worship Sunday when children stay with their families for the entire service; the service includes songs for children and an interactive Biblical, life-related teaching for children and adults.

  2. Will I be singled out as a guest?

    No. The Good Shepherd family is honored to worship the Lord with you, and we do not want you to feel uncomfortable or singled out. We do ask that you fill out our friendship register, so we can recognize your attendance at worship. The friendship registers are passed around during the worship service.

  3. Is there a place I can go to relax and mingle with others?

    Yes. Between our 8:30 am and 10:00 am services we invite you to join us for coffee, donuts and fellowship.
