Wedding / Baptism / Funeral

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism

Baptism is a special time for the Family of God. We welcome a new sister or brother into our community and we are reminded of the promise that God has made visible to us in our own Baptism that we are God’s beloved child and heir to eternal life.

Through the waters of baptism we celebrate our identity as one of God’s beloved children who is sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and marked with the cross of Christ forever. Baptism confirms that wherever we go in this world, God goes with us.

Schedule a Baptism

Baptism is a community event that includes the entire congregation, one’s new faith family, who makes a promise, along with parents and sponsors, to partner together in raising the child in faith. We welcome and celebrate the baptized at the worship service of your choosing: 8:00, 9:15, 10:30.

Please call the church office to schedule a date.

Weddings & Marriage Preparation

A wedding is a most important event in one’s life and marriage is an extraordinary gift of God. We at Good Shepherd Lutheran want to help make your celebration of both filled with joy. Therefore, we want to help you prepare, not just for your wedding, but also for your life together afterward.

Please read our Wedding Booklet for more information and then call the church office to schedule your wedding.
