Ways to connect at Good Shepherd
Everyone is welcome at the following gatherings as we all seek new forms of community to help hold us, support us, and inspire us. Your story is welcome in these spaces. Come as you are.
Sacred Summer Spaces
As we enter a differently shaped summer, virtually gather with others for casual conversation about life and faith. Every two weeks, an outline will be provided to help guide groups through conversation together, with a spiritual component and prayer. Either sign up to be placed in a group, or use the outlines with your own group gathering. Sign-up for Sacred Summer Spaces. Resources for Sacred Summer Spaces.
- Prayer Vigil – We would invite all our members to pause at 10:00 each morning for a time of prayer (and remember prayer doesn’t have to be speaking, it can also be simply listening.) If you would like to gather with others during this time join Sarah through the church facebook page. She will either join you live or leave prayers and resources for that day. You can also find Pastor Chris on instagram at 10:00 a.m.!View Daily Prayer Archived Videos

Midweek Worship – a live brief vespers service of prayer, scripture, and song. Light a candle, dress cozy, and join us for a midweek holy pause.
Contemplative Life Group – The Contemplative Life group meets every Thursday at 6:30 to support each other in developing meditation and other practices that create space in our hearts for us to develop a deeper relationship with God. We’ll share a reading or short discussion, sharing time, and a 20 minute silent time for meditation or Centering Prayer. Take advantage of these weeks of slowing down to join us, opening your heart to a peace that only God can give. https://zoom.us/j/403938753
