Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd
Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd was founded in 2003 as a Word and Sacrament ministry for the residents and families of the Good Shepherd Community. It is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Since its founding it has grown to serve not only the residents and families of the Good Shepherd Community, but also many in the surrounding community, as well.
The congregation worships in the chapel at the Good Shepherd Community. The Chapel is the center of our life of faith as God’s people. Here God comes to us in Word and Sacrament and gives us his grace. Here, we respond in worship and praise, giving thanks to God through Christ Jesus, our Lord. All residents, family, and staff, as well as people from the larger community are welcome to attend our services.
Weekly Worship Services:
Sundays at 10 AM Divine Service
Wednesdays at 10 AM During Advent and Lent
Feast Day worship services as they occur.
Holy Communion is celebrated at all services of the Lutheran Church of the Good
All are welcome
