At Good Shepherd our worship is traditional, but not static. We follow an ancient pattern, not because we are stuck in the past, but because it centers us and grounds us in worship of God. Musical settings and language may vary, but the pattern remains. We call this pattern Liturgy, which means the work of the people. Lutheran worship is participatory, active. We are a congregation, a gathered people, not simply an audience. God is the audience for our worship.
Worship at Good Shepherd is usually accompanied by organ or piano, supporting the Lutheran tradition of choral singing. A Cantor may lead the singing of the Psalm and there may be a small group that offers an Anthem, but by and large our singing is congregational. We do not have a Worship Band, but other instruments occasionally complement our worship.
