The congregation of the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church invite you to our church 9:15 am Sunday Bible Study, 10:30 am Sunday worship service and Wednesday 11:00 am for Bible Study!
Dear Friends in Christ,Prayer is such a crucial element of our health and weilness. St. Paul says in Philippian 4, that God will guard our hearts and minds in Jesus. A healthy mind is a praying mind. A healthy heart is a praying heart. The Spirit prays and intercedes on our behalf, at all times, no matter our dedication to personal prayer.
Paul also teaches us to give Thanksgiving before the answer comes. We learn as children to make our request, wait the answer, and say "thank you" after the request is answered. Parents even teach us when they whisper "what do you say?". . . and they say "thank you". But paul says when you pray to find things to thank God for... . before you ask. What a change that makes to our prayer life.
Prayer has a huge impact on our lives and hearts. We can lay all our burdens down in thankfulness knowing God will take them up. We trust that He is true to His word. You trust Him to make the right decision, you can fully rest, because the pressure is off you.
A healthy mind is a praying mind. When you pray, remember that His promises are springs of living water, never running out, plentiful, and abundant.
God's peace will guard your heart and mind. Anxiety may come and go, but God's peace conquers all fear.
Go in peace and serve the Lord. Thanks be to God.
Yours in Christ,
Reverend Ron Mueller
God's call to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is in Jeremiah 29:7
"Seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."
That's why Good Shepherd is working to GROW!
Going to our neighbors near and far
Reaching out to listen, learn and love
Opening our hearts and hands in Jesus' name
Welcoming them to life together in Christ's kingdom
The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church has many doors through which people share in serving God and others. Whether you visit in person or via the internet, we hope you discover something here to encourage you in your spiritual journey.
The Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is a church with a passion for sharing the love of Jesus Christ not only in our community but also around the world.
Everything Lutherans believe comes from the Bible, God's message of love and hope for all people. The Bible is the written Word of God, handed down to us in order to point us to the truth that we are saved from our sin and eternal death by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is completely reliable and without error. We learn everything we need to know about God's love from it.
We invite you to visit and join us for a wonderful time of fellowship and praising the Lord in a multitude of opportunities offered by our church.
As you enter our doors you will be welcomed by a greeter who will give you a bulletin for the day which will list the hymns, and information that you might need, and then they will direct you to the guest register, where we would appreciate it if you would give us your name and address so we can send you a welcome card. As you go into the sanctuary, please sit anywhere you might feel comfortable, and prepare to worship. Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is a community of faith, rooted in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our mission is to nurture each person in mind, body and spirit through worship, education and service.

Holy Communion: Our Lord shares with us His precious body and blood in the Sacrament of the Holy Communion. We invite those who are baptized Christians who are able to examine themselves on the basis of these three points of Christian faith:
I believe that Jesus is my only Lord and Savior from sin.
I believe that the true body and blood of Christ is present in the sacrament.
I resolve, with the Holy Spirit's help, to live for my Lord and witness through my actions that He is my Savior.
But God made the earth by his power;
he founded the world by his wisdom
and stretched out the heavens by his understanding.
When he thunders, the waters in the heavens roar;
he makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth.
He sends lightning with the rain
and brings out the wind from his storehouses.
Everyone is senseless and without knowledge;
every goldsmith is shamed by his idols.
The images he makes are a fraud;
they have no breath in them.
They are worthless, the objects of mockery;
when their judgment comes, they will perish.
He who is the Portion of Jacob is not like these,
for he is the Maker of all things,
including Israel, the people of his inheritance—
the Lord Almighty is his name.
