Church School is held each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. The children gather in the front pews for the opening of the service, then leave before the readings for their own lessons and prayers. They re-join the congregation after the sermon for Holy Communion.
Father Jon holds "community office hours" each Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. at Falls Taproom, 3749 Midvale Avenue. Feel free to drop by for conversation. You may also join Father Jon at Good Shepherd on Tuesdays and Thursdays for Morning Prayer at 10:30 a.m. Please enter by the Chapel door off the driveway.
Our church is a growing and welcoming community of people who seek 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 gather both on Sundays and at other times during the week for classes and fellowship, 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. Please join us!
We sometimes call ourselves a country church in the heart of the city. We’re on a tree-lined residential street in
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.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are on the journey of faith, you are welcome at Good Shepherd.
