When to arrive

Most people arrive only a few minutes before worship. Pastor Kathy is found in the lobby 15 minutes before worship with a warm smile to greet you. Greeters and Ushers can help answer your questions.

We have two worship services, at 8:00am and 10:30am from Labor Day through Memorial Day. Summer worship is at 9:30am only. A time for coffee and conversation is found after the second worship service when there are two.

Good Shepherd PrayGround

Good Shepherd values our children! When we return to our renovated space, we will once again have a Prayground space front and center.

What's a "Prayground"? It's a dedicated space in our church where little ones (suggested for ages 5 and under) can play, color and explore. It's a space where they can see and hear the pastor and worship leaders clearly. And it's a place where the congregation can celebrate the joy that your child--wiggles, noises and all--brings to our congregation!

In the meantime, look for activity bags for children as well as a staffed nursery during our worship service at the First Baptist temporary location.

 

5.3.2020 Worship: The Lord is My Shepherd

Worship Content

The two worship services are very similar. At either one you'll experience most of the same music and hear the same sermon. Both share a tone of reverent informality. The 8:00 service tends to be a bit quieter and more meditative, the 10:30 service livelier (9:30 in summer). Children are welcome at both services, but you'll find more children at the later service.

Communion is offered every Sunday at both worship services. Every baptized Christian, from young children to adults, is welcome to receive communion.

In our worship, we seek to glorify God and inspire people. As we worship, we speak to God and about God using a variety of Biblical metaphors: father, mother, shepherd, rock, light, guide, and many more. Such language expands and deepens our relationship with God. And we speak of people using language that we hope includes and honors all human beings as equally beloved children of God.

Music in worship

Good Shepherd enjoys music! For leading congregational singing and providing special music we have two choirs - a senior choir and a gospel choir. There's also a contemporary worship band, Circle of Friends, that includes vocalists, keyboard, guitar, drums, tambourine, flute, harp, and even washboard to play jazz, rock, pop, rhythm and blues, country, swing, and more. In addition, members and friends of the congregation often volunteer as soloists and instrumentalists.

Celebrations in worship

From time to time, worship experiences might include a drama, dance, an opportunity for individual healing prayers, the celebration of a ministry, a baptism, reception of new members, farewell for someone leaving, or a special blessing extended to a person or group.

For some practical details about what to expect at worship, read our Visitor Information.

Attitudes Towards Differences: The Riddle Scale

Good Shepherd rests securely in the "Nurturance" section of the Riddle Scale when it comes to its welcoming stance towards GLBT people. We assume that diversity in sexual orientation within our community is indispensible. We view differences with genuine affection and delight and are advocates of those differences. See where you are on the attached Riddle Scale.
