Whoever you are, whoever you love, whatever your religious background and however you have come to be here, we'd like to welcome you to our church!

Good Shepherd is an ELCA congregation located in Monroe, CT. Our members come from all over Connecticut, because they find Good Shepherd gives them the strength and guidance to meet the challenges of their daily lives. We hope you'll feel the same.

We hold worship services at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. every Sunday, and at 5:30 p.m. twice per month. We'd love to meet you!

Here are directions to Good Shepherd and the answers to some common questions you might have.

Sunday Evening Worship

We celebrate a relaxing and meditative Service of Word and Sacrament. It is a calm, reflective, slowing down presence and is held in the Narthex area or the Lounge. All are welcome to experience worship in a different style and at the hour of Vespers, sundown and "the lighting of the lamps." We gather at 5:30 p.m. on October 15 & 29, November 12, December 3 & 17.

 

Christian Meditation

On Friday, October 13th at 7:00 p.m. join Pastor Doug as he teaches ancient and distinctly Christian meditation practices that have watered the personal prayer lives of members of the church for many centuries. These practices are proven ways of lowering the resistances we have to a fuller awareness of God the Loving Trinity in the midst of our daily lives. On a secondary level they may nourish both mental, emotional and physical well being.
