What are your services like?
Our early service on Sunday and Wednesday Noon service are quiet (no music) with time for prayer and refection. Our late service on Sunday is filled with music, families, and celebration of our communion with each other. Whether it is through the music, prayer or preaching, God's word and the New Testament are at the center of all of our gatherings. The sermons are based on the readings for that week and are reflective, thought-provoking, and inspirational. They connect to our lives in real time and are free from much of the dogma found in "organized" religion.
Where should I park?
Good Shepherd has ample parking on the east and south sides of our church. Handicap parking is also available adjacent to the main entrance.
Where should I go when I enter the building?
Please enter through the white glass doors on the east side of the building (not the red doors on the west side lawn). Doors are handicap accessible. Once inside we have greeters in the Narthex (lobby) who would be happy to answer any questions and help you find where you need to go.
Do you provide childcare?
For our tiny, more exuberant members we have a quiet room with a full view of the sanctuary and altar. Sunday School for toddlers and teens begins at the start of the later Sunday church service. Following the Offertory, the children are brought upstairs, and they process in together. Father Lance encourages everyone except parents to be seated, so that the children can spot where they are (this is supervised by both teachers and our ushers, to help assure that everyone gets where they need to be!)
What should I wear?
We are more concerned about you and your presence with us
than we are with what you wear. There are no rules and you will see people in shorts, sandals and tropical shirts seated next to people in dress slacks, dresses, and ties.
