Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd provides many teachings and learning opportunities. Our core purpose for faith formation of all ages at LCGS is simple: go and make disciples. Jesus taught us this when he said:
God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20 the Message)
LCGS has a goal to make disciples through Baptism, engaging with God’s story, equipping God’s people of all ages to see God’s presence in their own stories, use their gifts, and providing many opportunities to experience God in everyday life especially through Word and Sacrament.
Your child’s faith journey begins with Baptism. Your child is welcome at our Baptismal font where our congregation will commit to helping you raise your child in the faith. On this special day we will send you on with tools to help you begin teaching your child and giving them the gift of faith.
Engage: We gather for worship at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. and Faith Formation (Engage) at 9:30 a.m. Engage is geared towards children from BIRTH – 5th GRADE. We come together to engage with scripture in the midst of our worship week, but also how we will engage scripture in the work/school week ahead of us.
Our students will be confirmed on Reformation Sunday.
Our group meets on Wednesday evenings with a meal at 5:30 p.m. and gathering until 6:45.
Pastor has a text study every Wednesday morning at 11 a.m. He is looking ahead to the Sunday readings each week. Join him for an hour in the library!
We begin our time with a meal then break for our small groups (kids and confirmation), then we gather back for worship and to share in the Lord’s Supper. Join us for a meal at 5 p.m.
