Our Worship Services
Good Shepherd offers the Holy Eucharist weekly in either Rite One or Rite Two forms from the Book of Common Prayer. There also is a Wednesday noontime service with healing prayers. If you are new to the Episcopal Church, our clergy will be happy to provide a brief orientation as well as an in-depth DVD introduction.
We welcome all people for our worship and invite all Christians to receive Holy Communion. Children are especially welcome! We offer families a separate room outside the nave with a large screen TV of the worship service for your comfort as children grow accustomed to the larger nave. For children grades K-3, there is a Children’s Chapel for the first part of the service. Ushers will be happy to direct you to the downstairs chapel; parents may attend this service as children become oriented to this worship at an age-appropriate level. The Nursery, located on the lower level, Following our services, clergy are available at the altar rail to offer prayers.
A hallmark of our parish are the high feast days of Easter, Pentecost, All Saints and Christmas. We also offer a rich variety of special services: Advent and Christmas Lessons and Carols, All Soul’s Service, Epiphany Feast of Lights, healing services, contemplative services and Evensong.
Those with Special Needs: We are accessible for those with physical challenges. If you would like to receive Holy Communion in your pew, please let the ushers know when you arrive at Good Shepherd. The handicapped parking signs are clearly marked; please feel free to drive to the front of the main entrance if that will be more convenient to assist a family member.
