Oktoberfest celebration

Saturday, October 19, 2019 - 5:30pm - 8:00pm

While not as rowdy as the one in Munich, this Oktoberfest Celebration has everything needed: German Food, dancing, and German beer. This year it takes place in the lovely gymnasium at First Baptist Church, 820 Ontario St., Oak Park. Once again Paul Collins from Ethnic Dance Chicago leads us in easy dancing for all ages. Tickets for food and dancing can be purchased in advance. Beer and wine is sold at the venue.  So get out your lederhosen or dirndls or other party clothes, bring your friends and enjoy the gemütlichkeit. 

  • Adults: $15
  • Children $5

Christian Ed Calendar

 Here is the link for the new Christian Education calendar.  (New and under maintenance, please be patient)

Jazz Prayer

Friday, September 20 at 7:30 pm

Acceptance — God always wants a connection to us. When we feel lost we need to ask ourselves who is hiding - God or Us?  Doors open 7:10 with refreshments; music begins at 7:30 p.m. This month you'll hear Duke Ellington"s tune Warm Valley and Reinhold Niehbur's Serenity Prayer. This gathering is designed to be meaningful and comfortable for people who consider themselves "spiritual but not religious” and for people who love jazz music performed well.  All are welcome.

Confirmation Meeting

Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Seventh and eighth grade students and parents: Mark your calendars for the important information meeting on September 11, 7:00-8:30pm. We will be talking about some exciting changes coming to this year's program!

Youth Connections

Our Sunday morning high school class is getting a reboot! Join us at 10:30am in the Youth Room for a discussion about current events, living as a Christian in an increasingly non-Christian world, and other topics that matter to this age group. Watch for more information about topics, coffee shop meetings, and more!

Lutheran Disaster Response

Lutheran Disaster Response brings God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by disasters in the United States and around the world. When the dust settles and the headlines change, we stay to provide ongoing assistance to those in need. Follow this link to learn more about current projects and make a donation. 

Sunday Morning Adult Bible Study

Join us any Sunday at 10:30am, in the parlor at First Baptist, just inside the west entrance off of Ontario St. No prerequisites, no homework -- and newcomers are most welcome!

A Welcome Message

Welcome to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, where our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds.

We want to be a place of blessing. If you are just beginning to wonder about Christianity, this is a safe place to ask questions and explore possibilities. If you have been journeying with Christ for some time, this is a place to grow deeper in your walk as a disciple. If you have wandered here and there or up and down in your spiritual journey, this is a place to speculate, marvel, seek and find.

And, whether you live out your faith primarily through study, meditation, emotional experience or social activism, you can find others at Good Shepherd who share your spiritual temperament. This is a place of open doors, open minds, open hearts, open hands.
