Worship

Whether you respond to chanted liturgy and lovely music, to plain spoken prayers and a streamlined service, to honoring the saints and receiving healing anointing, or to silent prayer, we offer a worship experience that will give glory to God and bring you joy, comfort, and peace. Join us!

All are welcome to attend our Wednesday morning Prayer and Healing Litany at 9:30 a.m. and our Sunday morning Services at 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.

We also gather for worship on special days in the Church calendar.

Faith Formation

Faith formation for all ages is an important part of our life at Good Shepherd. Children, youth, and all ages of adults take the next step of faith in Sunday School, in worship, in Soup and Study, and in Diocesan youth programs, all learning from Jesus who said, “You have one teacher, and you are all students. [. . . ] you have one instructor, the Messiah.” (Matthew 23:8-10).

Episcopal Church Women

Episcopal Church Women is open to all women of Good Shepherd Church. Come along to our weekly Wednesday morning meeting in the Undercroft at 10:30 a.m. and join in the planning and overseeing of many ministries including:

  • Thrift Shoppe;
  • Christmas Fair;
  • Outreach to shut-in members;
  • Birthday and Anniversary greetings;
  • Sympathy cards;
  • Funeral Receptions;
  • and so much more.

 

Thrift Shoppe

Our Thrift Shoppe, open year-round in our Undercroft on Fridays and Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., is completely volunteer run.

An enormously successful venture, the Thrift Shoppe supplies the whole community with quality second-hand clothing and household items at very low cost. For those in extreme need, there is no cost at all; because Jesus says “ I was naked and you gave me clothing” (Matthew 25:36).

New volunteers are always welcome to join the fun!
