Traditional Service at 8 and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday (8:00 and 10:00 a.m. in the summer) Holiday Worship Times may vary and will be posted in the announcements on the home page.
This service follows the structure of the traditional Lutheran liturgy. The congregation sings hymns and is supported by organ or piano and the chancel choir and occasionally other musicians or one of our children's choirs. Holy Communion is celebrated at every Sunday service.
Wednesday Evening - 6:45 p.m.
This service is intended to be an alternative for those who are not able to attend Sunday morning services. The format will be familiar: we will gather with song and prayer, hear God's word proclaimed, and celebrate holy communion! A true "Sunday morning experience" but on Wednesday!
Holy Communion is celebrated at every Sunday service. We welcome to God's table all who proclaim with us that Jesus Christ is truly present in the bread and the wine. Children receive Holy Communion instruction in the fall of the second grade year during Sunday School, older students who haven't yet received communion are welcome! However, practices vary from church to church and if your younger child has been receiving communion at another church, they are welcome to the Lord's table.
Communion at Good Shepherd is most commonly celebrated in the standing posture. Usher will direct the communicants forward to receive the bread (gluten-free wafers are available on request). Proceed down the communion rail to take either an individual cup of white grape juice or an empty cup to be filled with wine from the communion assistant. Simply place your empty cup in the tray provided at the end of the line before returning to your seat via the side aisles. To receive communion at your seat, please let the usher know.
