Church School meets 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.
Fr. Jon holds "Community Office Hours" at East Falls Taproom, 3749 Midvale Avenue each Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. Stop by for a chat.
Tuesdays and Thursdays a Service of Morning Prayer is held at 10:30 a.m. in the Chapel. Please use the chapel entrance on the driveway side of the church.
Our church is a growing and welcoming community of people who endeavor 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 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.
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.
