Mission & Vision

Together on the Journey

Good Shepherd believes from the very beginning, before we were a glint in our parents’ eye, God knew us and claimed us as ‘beloved Children of God’. The Church makes visible this promise in the Sacrament of Holy Baptism and then commits to nurturing and strengthening it throughout our lives through worship, service, learning and social events.

We are a vibrant faith community, with all generations of God’s children walking together side by side to experience God’s grace, love and forgiveness in order to create and pass on common traditions with the greatest generation – the one that is to come.


We consider that “faith is not something that develops in a vacuum. Having faith, understanding faith, exploring faith and questioning faith are not solo activities. These things are meant to be done with others who are on the same journey or looking for the same journey. These things are meant to be done with people older than us, the same age as us, and younger than us. These things are meant to be done with people who look, think, and live differently than we do.”
