Nurturing Our Youngest

At Good Shepherd we welcome people of all ages in worship including infants and young children.  Most 9:45 services include a Children’s Message giving children a chance to come up front and interact directly with the pastors.

Nursery Care

A quiet space for babies to eat and rest is located in our Nursery in the Inter†Gen wing. Changing stations are located in both restrooms in the Commons area, the Family restroom in the Inter†Gen wing and the quiet space in the Nursery.  Parents are welcome to visit the nursery area with their children during services and ministry events.  Audio from the Sanctuary can be heard in the nursery during worship.

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism at Good Shepherd Lutheran

As Lutherans we believe that baptism is a significant day on person’s faith journey because it is when God makes visible what was always known – that each person is a special Child of God. God promises to love us always no matter where we go or what we do. Most baptisms here are performed during one of the worship services so our members of the congregation can support the baptism family on this important day as well as throughout their lives.

Classes on the Sacrament of Holy Baptism are offered monthly at 10:45am.  The pastors will provide more valuable information regarding baptism to parents and/or grandparents of young children and to older persons who wish to become baptized.  Baptism sponsors are also welcome to attend.

Contact the church office at to schedule a baptism or to sign-up for a baptism class.
