Rooted in the rich Episcopal tradition of worship, our weekly worship styles – simple spoken, contemporary music and traditional choral music – provide an inspiring and renewing experience of God’s presence in our modern lives. Our sanctuary offers a sacred space to pray and to experience Jesus Christ, who is made present to us in the Scripture proclaimed and the Communion meal we share. You’ll hear a sermon reflecting on the Bible passages appointed for the day, and applied to our individual and communal lives. Everything you need is in the bulletin provided or the Book of Common Prayer found in the chairs.
The main entrance to the sanctuary is on the south side of the building. You can enter the parking lot off of 21st Street or Woodchuck. Handicap and visitor parking are available near the south entrance. Our facility is handicap friendly.
It’s up to you. Some come dressed in their “Sunday best” while others prefer a more casual attire. We invite you and your family to dress in whatever way you are comfortable (jeans are acceptable).
The nursery is available at all worship services for children ages birth to 5 years old. Caregivers provide a safe and loving environment for children while their parents participate in worship. The infant nursery may also be used as a “cry room” for parents who would like to stay with their babies and still hear the service. The nursery is located adjacent to the sanctuary. All staff has completed Safeguarding God’s Children, www.safeguardingonline.org , a child-protection training program required by the Episcopal Church.
Children are a very important part of Good Shepherd. Classes are taught by enthusiastic volunteer teachers, for children pre-school (4 years of age) through 5th Grade. Sunday School is held between the two Sunday worship services. We utilize a curriculum that encourages knowledge of the Bible stories, church traditions and life lessons.

Fellowship is especially important to us. Join us in Fellowship Hall between the Sunday worship services, so we can get to know each other.
