WORSHIP LIFE

Good Shepherd’s Sunday worship ministry includes three Sunday Eucharistic opportunities: 9:00AM “Liturgical”, “Blended”, and “Contemporary” Services and 10:00AM – “Family Church”.

 

Family Church is joyful worship of our Loving God, which is “young person friendly” and creatively encourages all worshipers to participate and to celebrate being the church of Jesus Christ. Family Church is intended to be both consistent yet innovative, combining the “traditional” with new ways of celebrating the Good News of God in Jesus Christ.

 

Occasional, Services are offered mid-week throughout the church year.

♫ Blessed be the Name of the Lord ~ Blessed be your Name

Blessed be the name of the Lord ~ Blessed be Your glorious name. ♪

 

In the song, “Blessed be Your Name”, by Matt Redman, he sings the above chorus between verses that include having “streams of abundance” and “on the road marked with suffering”. No matter where you are in life’s journey we can ♪ “turn back to praise” ♪. It clearly reminds us that in all situations we are to…

 

“Rejoice always. Pray continually. Give thanks in all circumstances;

For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  

(Thessalonians 5: 16-18)

Let us, therefore, rejoice, sing and celebrate the glory of God in the gift of his Son; always giving thanks and aiming to be a blessing to others.  Blessed be his glorious Name!

“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through?

May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The one who calls you is faithful and He will do it.”

(1 Thessalonians 5: 23-24)
