Welcome to Good Shepherd!

A message from Pastor Amy Larson:

This is Christ’s Church. There is a place for you here!

  • There is a place for your questions, joys, sorrows, and complexities.
  • There is a place for you in this community of God’s broken and beloved people.
  • There is a place for your gifts in the work we share: God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world.

Good Shepherd is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Northeastern Iowa Synod.

All are welcome. God makes no exceptions.

Good Shepherd is a Reconciling in Christ congregation, affirming our welcome to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and queer identifying persons to participate fully in the life of our congregation.

Worship is at the center of the ministry of Good Shepherd. In worship, we encounter God in word and sacrament and are shaped to be God’s people in the world.

Worship at Good Shepherd draws on beautiful, ancient patterns that gather, feed and send us out in service. The music includes the great hymns of the church and new songs from around the world. Worship is enhanced by the gifts of a Music Director, a historic organ, the choir, band and other ensembles. Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday.
