Journey of Lent

Sunday, March 5th is the first Sunday in the church season of Lent. traditionally, Lent focuses on strengthening  our faith and our relationship with God. All are welcome to join us for worship each Sunday morning at 8:30 am, and 11:00 am at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.  Also each Sunday for an hour starting at 9:45 am, is a children’s based program called Family Faith Journey.  Children learn about God’s love and grow in their faith together with their family.

Starting Monday and through the week there will be questions raised for meditation based on the Bible readings heard during  Sunday worship.
