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.

SKILL BUILDING WORKSHOP
CARING FOR YOUR POWER EQUIPMENT AND LAWN
SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 2013 - 10:00 TO 11:30 AM
ALL ARE WELCOME!
If you are like most of us, there is always something that needs to be done around the home. Too often the job seems beyond our ability and we are forced to hire someone or put off doing the job altogether. Good Shepherd Church has come up with a way to help. Fortunately, there are a number of people in our area that are willing to teach basic skills. We will be offering free Skills Building workshops periodically through the year to the community. Please invite your frien ds and neighbors.
The next workshop will be “How to care for your power equipment and lawn like a Pro”, led by Bob Day, a Lincoln Tech professor and by our own Master Gardener Judy Pfister. Free and open to the community. Remember, all are welcome.
During the 90-minute class, Bob and Judy will cover:
·How to get and keep your power equipment in top shape
·Some of the repairs you can do yourself
·How to start a problem engine
·How to use your mower and trimmer
·Basic equipment maintenance
·How to properly store the equipment at the end of the season
·Best practices in using equipment
To get really good results you need to understand what materials to use, the proper preparation and the techniques to get a professional looking results. They will demonstrate techniques, tools, and material.
Watch for upcoming workshops: “Repairing and patching walls for painting”, and “Basic Electrical” about replacing outlets, switches, ballasts, and light fixtures.
COME JOIN US FOR SPIRIT CAFE
SATURDAY EVENING, 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!
