What We Do
During the month of June, in-person services are temporarily suspended as Pastor Joanna is recuperating after an injury. Please join us online on Zoom!
We invite you to join us for worship in our sanctuary each Sunday! During the coronavirus pandemic, we keep a list of attendees for contact tracing, so feel free to let us know in advance that you plan to join us on our Upcoming Events page.
We also have several online options for Sunday worship!
Each week you can find a pre-recorded worship service on our Facebook page.
Everyone is invited to join us for Zoom worship at 10:00 AM each Sunday morning! Click here to go to the Zoom meeting on Sunday morning, and click here to check out the Facebook event where you can have Facebook remind you of worship each Sunday!
Making a Joyful Noise
At Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, music is an important part of worship. When we meet, we sing "golden oldies" as well as contemporary praise and worship songs with equal gusto! Our services alternate the liturgy with the church season.
Right now, we can't meet in person for some of our favorite activities like Shepherd Choir and Handbell Choir, but each Friday evening, our director of music, Mike Nault, hosts a hymn sing on Zoom.
When we are able to meet in person, we host two Bible study sessions each week. Right now, we are hosting one Bible study session on Zoom each Monday evening.
When we finish one book of the Bible, we start another. We have already worked through several, from Acts to Ephesians. Anyone is welcome to jump in and join at any time!
All the latest updates, including the Zoom information, are on our Facebook event page. Check it out!
Fundraisers and Drives
Helping The Community
At Good Shepherd, we have a variety of committees and groups who all favor particular initiatives to help in the community. Women of the ELCA (WELCA) collect school supplies to make school kits for Lutheran World Relief, and our Outreach and Evangelism committee frequently runs drives for supplies for Laundry Love of Goldsboro, a group that helps those in need in Wayne County wash clothes and bedding. Our fundraisers and collections change throughout the year and depending on current events.
Wednesday Evening Vespers
A Mid-Week Break
Everyone needs a break, right? Each Wednesday at 7:00 PM, pause for prayer. A recorded opportunity to enter into holy space, breathe in the grace of God, and focus on faith. It will be posted on the church’s Facebook page.
