Sunday School classes continue on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month.
The group gathers in the front pews nearest the piano for the opening of the service. At the Lessons they leave for their own class and activities in the Parish Hall, returning at the Peace to participate in Communion. Classes are geared to children aged 4-10, but older kids are welcome too!
Children are always welcome to sit with their families and participate in the service. Activity baskets are available, as are copies of the weekly "Sunday Paper" lesson and coloring page, based on the readings of the day.
The Rev. Isaac J. Miller has been engaged as our interim rector, while the vestry, in conversation with the Diocese, plans the next steps for Good Shepherd's continued ministry.
Welcome to the Memorial Church of the Good Shepherd
We gather as a community in order to reveal the gifts of the Spirit that are within each of us, and to worship God as faithfully and fully as we know how, endeavoring to fulfill our promises at baptism to seek and serve Christ in all persons, strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being. We are a church of traditional Episcopalians, progressive Christians, and committed seekers. Our parish is open to all who wish to test the idea that no life is complete without spiritual life. We cherish diversity and conviction, and respect the exploration of differences. Please join us!
Whoever you are, and wherever you are on the journey of faith, you are welcome at Good Shepherd.
