The people of Good Shepherd extend you a warm welcome!

Like faith communities around the U.S. and the world, Good Shepherd has modified our ministries to continue to offer spiritual support and to point to Christ’s presence in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Church is more than a building, and we remain committed to our mission to grow, nurture, and make disciples in Christ wherever and however we can. Scroll down to learn more.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” ~Philippians 4:6-7

Ministry during Pandemic

Though the ongoing pandemic has changed a lot of things, we know that two things have stayed the same: God’s everlasting love, and our call to grow, nurture, and make disciples in Christ. In grateful response to this holy love, we continue to find ways to live out our mission throughout the fall and the months to come. Read on to learn more!

Worship

We offer worship in two mediums: in-person & livestreamed.

Reopening Process

Over the summer, Good Shepherd tapped several of our members to form a reopening team to help us discern how and when to begin gathering for worship in person once again. This team includes a scientist working in the pharmaceutical industry, a human resources expert, a building inspector, the chair of our worship and music committee, a retired nurse, and our pastors. We give thanks for their combined expertise and faithfulness in this difficult task!

This reopening team produced two documents. GSLC Phased Reopening offers a birds-eye-view of what reopening will look like, identifying the phases we’re moving through and the triggers that send us forward and backward in the process. Recommendations for Reopening is a much more detailed document. It identifies thirteen goals we’ll strive to meet in order to keep our gatherings as safe as possible, and gets into the nitty-gritty of how those goals will be met.
