Worship our Lord with Joy!

Worship update 6/30/2020

We invite you to join us for worship at Good Shepherd.

Beginning July 5th, the 11:00 am service is set aside for people with special health/safety concerns.

Masks will be required for all who attend the 11:00 am service and there will be no congregational singing, as we enjoy a shorter devotional service.


Summer worship schedule:

Thursdays at 5:00 and 6:30 pm

Sundays at 8:00, 9:30 and 11:00 am


We practice safe distancing, using every other row of pews, and encourage everyone to use hand sanitizer when entering and exiting.  Masks are encouraged, but not required.  The sanctuary is cleaned after each service.


The Washington County Health Department now recommends we limit attendance at each service to 50% of our maximum, which is about 260 people, so there is plenty of room for people to attend the service of their choice.   There is no need to signup for a specific service. 

Presently we are not filling out welcome worshipper cards at church, but to help track attendance, we invite you to sign up for the service of your choice at our website www.goodshepherdwels.org. However online signup is not required to attend.

The Book of Ruth --A Story of Redemption

An Online Bible Study

Starting Monday, June 1st at 7:00 p.m.


A major emphasis of this study will be a "close, Christological" reading of this familiar story. 


· "Close" means paying close attention to the author's choices in how to tell the story and in the words he used. 


· "Christological" means reading with the understanding that this book, like all of the Old Testament, testifies about Christ. 


To treat Ruth as just a source of information or principles to live by misses its purpose in the Old Testament.  Ruth shows us what redemption looks like.


This study will be presented using Zoom. 


Please send an email to pastorjhpaustian@charter.net in order to receive the link needed to join the class.


The plan is for this study to have 5 lessons--an introduction to the book, followed by lessons on each of the 4 chapters.
