What To Expect

Sunday Worship

Sunday is the day we gather for worship at LCGS. We have 2 services each unique in their character though with the same scripture and similar message preached. We hope you’ll find that no matter where you are in your journey of life or faith, if you’re seeking to learn more about God, you’ll find a place within our community.

Morning Worship @ 8:00 am & 10:00 am

Morning worship gathers a diverse group of ages and cultural backgrounds. At the 10 am service is when our kids’ ministry takes place. Please note, this service is live-streamed: the first 5 rows of pews are occasionally visible on our livestream, so please sit further back if you’d prefer to not be on camera.

Some things to note about this service:

    Families – We believe worship is an important time for kids to experience and participate in. Kids 1-10yrs join their families in the worship service for the first part of the service, then are invited up to the front for a short kids’ moment, then led to kids church. For families with infants, we have a cry room or our nursery is staffed where you can safely drop off your kids.

    Communion – we celebrate communion every Sunday.

Visiting LCGS

Let’s face it, visiting a church for the first time can be a little intimidating. Our goal is to help
make your first visit to LCGS great and help you make a connection with Jesus and with his
people!

What are services like?

Each weekend at LCGS you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We’re a small church that
believes in a Big God that is able to  do more than we can ask or think. 
We offer two services: 8:00 am & 10:00 am. Our 8:00 am service is traditional, we follow the
liturgy set for us in our Lutheran Book of Worship. The 10:00 am service is what we call blended,
which means we incorporate a bit of liturgy, but for the most part it’s very modern with a band
and contemporary music. You will discover that at both services we sing, read Scripture, hear a
sermon from God’s Word, and end with communion and more singing.

Nice People

We love it when someone comes for the first time. But, we don’t always recognize the
first-time visitors because so many of the people who come are still fairly new, so feel
free to say, “This is my first time” and we’ll guide you in.

Fun, Safe Environment for Kids

Kids love it at Good Shepherd! Kids start out by
worshiping with their parents and will go to a kid’s church after they are blessed by the
congregation. We believe it’s important for parents and kids to praise and worship
together. 

Babies and toddlers are cared for by loving nursery employees.

All of our kids’ ministry volunteers must pass background checks and have a heart for
kids & families.

Biblical Teaching

Biblical teaching that connects the words of the Bible to everyday life and music that is
both traditional and modern.

A Casual Atmosphere

We care about you, not what you’re wearing, so feel free to come in jeans or whatever is
comfortable. Our dress code is simple: wear something.
 
Grab a hot cup of free coffee from the courtyard and sit wherever you’d like in our
worship center.
 
We will NOT single you out publicly or ask you to say anything, and we do not expect
guests to contribute anything financially.
Don’t be surprised when some people raise their hands as a sign of praise while singing,
and don’t feel obligated to do so yourself. We create an atmosphere of freedom in our
services.
We take risks in faith and stay fast, fluid, and flexible in our approach to church. We do
whatever it takes, short of sin, to find people who are far from God. We’re crazy about
broken people and we’ll get our hands messy to serve others. 
Everybody belongs – every color, every shape, every personality, and people with every
kind of story imaginable. We trust the Bible completely. We value Kingdom growth and
invest in multiplying new churches locally, nationally, and globally. We do everything
for the name and fame of Jesus Christ.
