Making Connections


The Great Commision of Matthew 28 tells us that we must be going into all the world, making disciples of persons in all nations. 

At Good Shepherd, we aim to take that seriously by using whatever means we have to promote missions in our own community. 

Building Connections is about serving Jesus by serving others around us.  In order to do that, we will be focusing on improving and updating our facilities to accomplish the work of spreading the Gospel through our church and school.

Christ Teens is our teen organization that provides Christian social and service activities throughout the year for our 8th-12th graders. We are getting ready for the youth rally next summer.  It is an awesome experience.  We would love to have over 20 teens from GS go.  Please contact Mrs. Rau to get on the list for the rally. 

Time Out For Moms is a ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, West Bend, Wisconsin.


Our Mission:

Encouraged by Christ's love for us, Time Out for Moms promotes spiritual, emotional, and personal growth activities for women in a caring and nurturing atmosphere.


A ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, offering childcare for newborns and up in a safe, loving Christian environment. Before and after school care and a summer program are also available.
