Baptism

Baptism

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is a congregation rooted in Baptism. Baptism is a means of grace. It is an ancient rite and a clear and concrete way that God reveals love and mercy to us. In Baptism we are welcomed into the Body of Christ fully. ALL are invited to take part in this gift of mercy. If you would like to be baptized or would like to have your children baptized please join us for worship and connect with one of our pastors.

A program for Junior High students, consisting of retreats, Sunday School and worship attendance, workshops and service, culminating in the rite of Confirmation at the end of the 8th grade year.  Parental involvement is key to this program.  Summer camping experiences are offered each year.
