"Marriage is a gift of God, intended for the joy and mutual strength of those who enter it and for the well-being of the whole human family. The church in worship surrounds the promises made with the gathering of God's people, the witness of the word of God, and prayers of blessing and intercession"
~Evangelical Lutheran Worship~
We rejoice with you for the love God has given to you for one another. As you begin your journey towards making your life-long commitments and into your life together it is important to surround yourself with a community of love and support. Your promises are made individually but are supported by the entire community for friends, family, and loved ones.
At Good Shepherd, couples desiring to be married will meet with one of our pastors at least three times prior to the wedding ceremony. This helps the couples prepare for the wedding and for their marriage. If you would like to be married at Good Shepherd please contact the church office.
In holy baptism the triune God delivers us from the forces of evil, puts our sinful self to death, gives us new birth, adopts us as children, and makes us members of the body of Christ, the church.
If you would like your child or yourself baptized at Good Shepherd, please contact the church office.
