Good Shepherd-Faith Presbyterian Church
United by a shared faith in a loving God

"He is not here." "He has risen!"
Because we are a multi-cultural congregation with English and Korean speaking members we hold two services each Sunday except for the first Sunday of the month when we all worship together at 11:00 a.m. and celebrate Holy Communion.
On the other Sundays in the month we hold a Service at 10:15 a.m. in English and a Service at 12:00 noon in Korean.
We all worship together on the special holidays: Maundy Thursday, Easter Sunday and Christmas
In our worship services you will find a wide variety ways to praise and give thanks to God. The Prayers of the People offers hope and support in times of trouble and joy and praise in good times. And there is (usually) inspirational music by the choir and soloists. The service is focused on a Bible verse that is part of the Presbyterian lectionary and our pastors offer their insight into that verse in their prompting (or sermon). After the prompting, in the English Service there is an opportunity for members of the congregation to respond and/or ask questions about the prompting. This is a unique feature of GSF begun by Reverend Richard Symes back in the 1970's.
Some people dress up and some come in jeans - and all are equally welcome!
In our Joint Services the first Sunday of the month we celebrate the Lord's Supper and by worshipping together (in English with Korean translation) we celebrate our unique multi-cultural congregation. And the joint choir (from both services) sings in both English and Korean!
But mostly, we enjoy our time together and we worship God with joyful and grateful hearts. We hope you will joint us one day.
After services, all are invited for fellowship and refreshment held immediately following the service in the downstairs Social Hall.
