To Know Christ and to Make Him Known


The people of Good Shepherd welcome you.

Finding a congregation where you feel at home and can grow spiritually is one of life’s greatest joys. We at Good Shepherd have found such a home, and we welcome you to join us. If you’re looking for traditional worship, with a strong emphasis on the ministry of the Word of God, this is the place for you. We’re a small congregation with a lot going on – so everybody matters.

If you’re looking for a church home, visit us. And come back again and again!

We invite visitors, new-comers, and even old-timers to explore our website to discover various ways to become involved in our parish life. Don’t miss the Gallery pictures that show us at worship, work, or play — before masks. Now we meet in small groups, masked, and maintain social distancing when at the church. But we also have “Bible Study” and “Choir” zoom-meetings during the week.

We have a new priest, The Rev. W. Terry Miller, who has exciting plans for us.

Our Sunday morning service begins at 9:30 with the ringing of the bell. During the pandemic restrictions most of the service and Bible readings are printed in the bulletin. (But you are welcome to bring your own Bible and/or Prayer Book.) If you are not an Episcopalian, just follow the service in the bulletin. In general, we kneel (if able) to pray, sit for the readings and the sermon, and stand for the Gospel reading by the priest and for singing. However, presently while both the choir and the congregation are not able to sing, we have wonderful live organ and piano music played by our Music Director and recorded music and singing by members of the choir.

At this time our Nursery and Children’s Chapel are unable to meet. Young children of all ages are welcome to attend our 9:30 service with their parents.

Sunday morning parking is available in our 43rd Street lot or on the street.

Plan to visit us this Sunday!

If you forget your mask or hand-sanitizer, don’t worry; we have them at the door to the sanctuary.
