Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd serves His people in humble but saving ways: He speaks, and we are healed; He gives Himself, and we are made right with God; He conquers death, and we are freed from our greatest fears.
But that's not how every day life feels when faced honestly, is it? Daily life doesn't tell us about this Saviour so much as it reminds us of our responsibilities and of our trials, failures, and burdens: some we bring on ourselves, others land on us from outside; some we face in secret, others all too publicly. Where is the voice of our Good Shepherd now?
Whoever you are, whatever your background, you are invited to join us each week as our gracious God, in His humble-looking yet mighty Word, proclaims to us that He has kept and still keeps His promises in the person and work of Jesus, and by that same Word pours onto us the Salvation He has prepared for us in His Son Jesus Christ.
Come hear the Good News!
On behalf of the entire congregation of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, we invite
you to join us for the weekly Divine Service, where God comes to call sinners to repentance
and to announce the Good News of His undeserved favour toward us for Christ's sake.
He is the Saviour for sinners, and His life, death, and resurrection have made
full payment for the sins of the whole world. As God's Word of Law and Gospel
is applied to us time and time again, and has its effect, our sins are forgiven!
our guilt is put to death! and we are resurrected to a new life of faith, hope, and love firmly
anchored in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith. It is through God's Service
to us in this way that the wounded and shattered hopes of this
life are restored and we receive even better and surer hopes as we learn to look for
our peace in Him, where He has promised to give it, and Himself with it! These are given
and received in the preached Word and Sacraments which He Himself instituted.
We would very much like to hear from you!
