Christian Formation

We have several Sunday worship services from which to choose, each with a different feel and tempo. For spiritual growth, we offer a coordinated Christian Formation program for all ages. In addition to Sunday programs, the Church of the Good Shepherd also offers several weekday services and classes, to meet a variety of schedules and interests. There are many ways for people to share in the mission and ministries of the Church of the Good Shepherd.

The Church of the Good Shepherd offers several opportunities to learn about our spiritual heritage, hear and appropriate God’s word, and discuss and ponder the things of God among friends.
