Sunday Mornings at Good Shepherd

Sunday Morning Worship is the centerpiece of Good Shepherd’s congregational life. We also celebrate together such seasonal services such as Christmas and Holy Week, and special occasions when the congregation is called to worship. Good Shepherd has both a Traditional Lutheran Service and a more contemporary Sing And Rejoice Service led by CrossView, our praise team. Both worship services feature the preaching of the Word and also the sharing of the Communion Meal. Good Shepherd believes that sharing this Word and Meal is open to all who gather seeking to be drawn into the awareness of God’s presence spirited by Jesus the Risen Christ.

Since music is an integral part of worship, Good Shepherd welcomes a variety of musical offerings and opportunities for individuals to share their solo voices and musical instruments to enhance public worship.

8:45 a.m. – Traditional Service

Liturgy of Word and Sacrament with preaching, readings and sacred music. At the early service, worshipers can sing with the traditional music of the pipe organ as well as listen to superb choral offerings. This services follows a traditional Lutheran Liturgy found the congregation’s worship book- the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (or ELW ).

10:00 a.m. – Education & Fellowship

The time between services is for fellowship with light refreshments. Our Sunday School meets during this time with Christian education for both children and adults.

11:05 a.m. – Sing & Rejoice Service
