Worship is a vital component in the life of Good Shepherd UMC. It draws us together as one body, honors our diversity of experiences of being human, anchors our faith in God, sustains our spirits, invites us to love one another, and empowers us to transform our community and world for the better. You are welcome to join us in the fullness of who you are at any point along your journey. Worship follows this weekly pattern:
Every Sunday at 10 a.m., we gather together for worship in the sanctuary. The service features a blend of traditional, contemporary, and pop music and is casual – dress comfortably! Come as you are with an open heart and an open mind. Our building is handicap accessible with an accessible entrance clearly marked on Sunday mornings and all gender restrooms are located on the first floor. Assistive listening devices are available and ASL interpretation is offered on the first Sunday of every month.
The sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. We believe that God’s table is open to every person who desires to receive abundant grace and grow in love. You do not need to be baptized or a member of any church in order to receive Holy Communion at Good Shepherd UMC. The bread and grape juice are gluten-free and individually sealed for everyone’s health and safety. And if you do not wish to receive the sacrament, you may ask for a blessing by crossing your arms over your chest.
When you follow Good Shepherd UMC on Facebook and Instagram, you will receive prayer posts every Monday morning that will nourish your spirit and prompt spiritual reflection and renewal as you embark on a new week. Make some time for yourself according to your own schedule, grab a cup of coffee or make some tea, light a candle, and allow your phone, tablet, or computer to be a means of grace.
This periodic prayer experience begins on Wednesday, March 9 at 12 p.m. and convenes online via Zoom. The service will last 30 minutes and will be weekly throughout the season of Lent, ending on Wednesday, April 13.
Deepen your faith by serving as an acolyte, usher, or liturgist during the worship service. Acolytes light the candles, ushers collect the weekly offering, and liturgists lead the congregation in the call to worship and proclaim the scripture lesson.
