Traditional Sunday Worship
8:30 am & 10:00 am
Our traditional Sunday morning services include mostly hymns accompanied by the piano. Special music is generally once a month and involves a variety of instruments, the adult vocal choir or our bell choir. Contemporary worship songs are mixed in on a regular basis. The fifth Sunday of every month, we celebrate our heritage with a different liturgy from older hymnals.
Contemporary Sunday Worship
Our Contemporary Sunday morning service incorporates additional instruments, a worship leader and vocalists and features contemporary worship music. The format is a more intimate setting with more opportunities to engage during the service. After the sermon, we have a time of "Responding," where a leader will guide us through a time of discussion/activity/meditation time where we consider how the sermon can be applied to our daily lives. We also offer an area in the sanctuary for families with small children where there are toys, books, room to play, snacks and art supplies. At Good Shepherd, we want to encourage young families and support them as they put their children in the path of the Lord.

The four weeks leading up to Christmas is known as Advent. During this time during the church year, we meet we meet on Wednesdays nights at 6:00 pm for a Soup Supper and gather for a themed worship service at 7:00 pm as we prepare our hearts and lives for the coming of our Savior!
A note about the Lord's Supper (Communion)...
As Lutherans we believe Christ is truly present among us—His body and blood given in, with, and through such common elements as bread and wine—offering us a forgiveness we can taste. Every believer should to this invitation by examine him/herself and trust that, only through Jesus Christ, sin is forgiven and God welcomes His children into His embrace.
