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.

COME JOIN US FOR SPIRIT CAFE
SATURDAY EVENING, June 8 at 5:00 PM
And Saturday, July 13, at 5:00 PM
Want to explore your relationship with God in a deeper, more personal way?
Spirit Cafe is GSLC's new worship ser-vice set in the Narthex! Deepen your spirituality and discover what it means to be a Christian in modern times through fellowship, song and small group conversation in a warm & welcoming environment.
June's topic will be: “Cross: Where God Is”. The video features Pastor Nadia Bolz-Weber! The cross sits at the center of our faith, and yet our understanding of what exactly happened on that cross remains conflicted and confusing. Was Jesus our proxy? The payment? The only way to appease an angry God? Pastor Nadia reminds us that our theories about the cross tell us as much about ourselves and our view of God as they do about Jesus and salvation. Some of our members have heard Pastor Nadia speak at the 2012 ELCA Youth Gathering in New Orleans and can attest to her being an outstanding speaker and one cool Lutheran Pastor!

Good Friday Mime
On Good Friday, our youth helped all of us better appreciate the story of Jesus' crucifixion by performing a mime accompanied by narration of the Passion story. It was a moving experience that helped us see the events of Good Friday in a new light.
