worship philosophy

STYLE
The style of worship at Good Shepherd is an intentional blend of ancient, traditional, and modern forms of liturgy, prayer, music, and communication. Our starting point for planning each service is God’s Word, the Bible. Each week we seek to provide effective and numerous ways for worshipers to gather around, hear and respond, and go forth into the world with the good and hopeful Word of God in scripture. We also intentionally gather as a family of believers of many ages and backgrounds, and so use all the means at our disposal to invite each worshiper into the presence of God. It is our hope that each person present will not only worship God in Spirit and truth, but also in community. It is a joy and a privilege to worship God together!

DRESS
People's attire for Sunday morning worship varies pretty widely, from casual to suits, but the "median" is probably what you might wear out to a medium-priced restaurant for dinner. Pastor Robert preaches in a shirt and tie.

*The early worship service is the same style/content as the 11:00 am worship service.
