Next Steps

"Loving people into a living relationship with Jesus" is what we at Good Shepherd strive to do. We have opportunities for you to grow in your relationship with Jesus through our many ministries.

New Member Classes

You've worshiped at Good Shepherd and now you want to get more involved? What's the next next step?

Become a partner in God's mission at Good Shepherd! We want to partner in Christ's mission with you! 

New Member Classes are held quarterly throughout the year. Our next session of classes will be held Tuesday, Sept. 24th and Thursday, Sept. 26th, from 7:00-8:30 PM.

During the first session (Tuesday), we will review the beliefs and doctrine of our Lutheran faith. If you come from a non-Lutheran background, or if you were raised Lutheran but need a refresher, this class is for you!

During the second session (Thursday), we will discuss the Mission of Good Shepherd, as well as highlight various ministries and ways that your family can become involved in the life of our church. Everyone is encouraged to attend Thursday's class!

Childcare is provided at all of our New Member Classes!
