Welcome to The Lutheran Church of The Good Shepherd!
We gather for worship every Sunday at 10:15am.
Please join us in this season of lent as we become Restored in Christ: A series of services for Lent.
"The season of Lent is a time for us to face together the brokenness of our lives and world, and then turn that brokenness over to Christ so that we can be restored by him through the cross. Written by seminary professor Joel Biermann, each service in this stirring series focuses on a certain event in the Lenten story and takes a good, hard look at the broken element from that particular story. Coming to an understanding of how each of these broken elements leads to restoration in Christ is key to understanding what it ultimately means to live today as new creations in Christ."

- "Broken Hearts Restored" Joel 2: 12-14 - Our Hearts are broken in sorrow over sin; Christ Restores our hearts through his forgiveness.
