Good Shepherd has been a Lutheran witness to the Gospel since 1952.
Worship is a time for celebration, reflection, and growth in faith.
The sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism are essential elements of worship life.
We expand our worship through using dance, drama, and contemporary music in our Grace Alive! services.
Our youth are the next leaders of the church. They are active in learning about their faith and serving others.
The youth share their faith and take an active role in worship, service, and leadership.
We serve locally thru Habitat for Humanity, the Food Bank, and other groups & globally thru the worldwide church.
Good Shepherd is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and a member of the NJ Synod.

As Advent approaches and life becomes crazy, let us take some time each day to reflect on what God is doing in the world. The Advent photo-a-day activity is a creative devotional exercise that everyone can take part in. If you use social media, tag your photos with #gslcadvent14 so that we can share all our images together. If you do not use social media, but would like to participate (please do!), please see Pastor Chelsea so we can collect your photos as well. At the end of Advent, we’d love to make a great collage of how we have seen God at work throughout this season of preparation and waiting.
Here are the themes for each day:
Reflect on the theme and be on the lookout for ways that God might be speaking to you through that theme throughout the day, taking a picture or pictures of all the ways that God is at work through that theme – then post your pictures online using #gslcadvent14!
We can’t wait to see all the ways God is working in, through and around us this Advent season!
