Join us for a quiet, reflective service following the Rite 1 tradition in the Book of Common Prayer. Afterwards, catch up with friends at our coffee hour, located in the Mellichamp Room.
If you are looking for a contemporary, spirit-filled worship experience in the Anglican tradition, join us for the 9:15. Located in the main church, this service offers contemporary acoustic music, interactive Prayers of the People, and plenty of space for the young ones to move around. Our weekly worship will most often be Holy Communion but will also combine lay testimony and powerful prayer. Come early or stay late and enjoy fresh coffee and baked goods. Children are welcome at the 9:15 and the relaxed setting allows families to worship together.
Come worship at our family service following Rite 2 in the Book of Common Prayer, where you’ll find an open invitation for all ages to engage in a lively worship experience. Join our choir in singing a range of hymns and worship music that are wonderfully diverse accompanied by our pipe organ, flute, guitar and other instruments. Welcome Families! At Good Shepherd, families are welcome. We offer a nursery from birth through 3 years old separated for infants and toddlers. Gracetime is available at this service for 4 years old through 1st grade. Children receive a lesson on the same Scripture as the sermon at their level and return at the Offertory to be with their families for Communion. 2nd Graders and up are encouraged to be Acolytes and to participate in the service including filling in the sermon outline. Children over the age of 6 are also invited to participate alongside adults as Lay Readers, Ushers, and Greeters. Nursing mothers are invited to use the comfortable chair in the privacy of the ladies’ restroom where a changing station is also located (a changing station is also available in the men’s restroom). The service can be heard in the ladies’ restroom as well as in the Narthex. Please feel free to use the Narthex for little ones who need to move around. Our desire is to have you and your children in worship together. To that end, please do not feel like the cries or noise that children make is an interruption; we see it as a part of our worship of a Savior who welcomed children. After the service, meet fellow church members in Layman’s Hall for snacks and refreshments.
