As a community shaped by the life, death and resurrection of Christ, we are called to a lifetime of faith formation. From the cradle to the grave we seek to equip and empower each person to make connections between daily life and following Christ. As Lutherans this means continually returning to the waters of baptism, walking into the world wet, and planting seeds of faith wherever we find ourselves: at work, at home, at church, and in the wider community. We intend to give families the resources and the confidence to nurture faith at home, trusting that faith is passed on through personal, trusted relationships. In this journey of faith formation, there is a place for you!
Use the links of Faith Formation to explore in many directions and discover resources for you and you family to use as you deepen your faith. You will find information about the opportunities available at Good Shepherd, but to also find resources to be used at home to help you and your family continue to grow in and expand your faith lives.
