Worship will continue to be provided online. All are encouraged to make choices related to your comfort level.


We don’t want to tell anyone they cannot worship at Good Shepherd and will only send someone away if they put the congregation at risk by not following the requirements and instructions given at the mandatory check-in before worship, which are:

  1. Answer a short health survey

    1. Do you have a temperature 100.4° F or higher?

    2. Do you have other symptoms such as a cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, chills, headache, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, new loss of taste or smell, or toes and extremities turning blue?

    3. In the last 14 days have you been in close contact with someone confirmed or is being evaluated for COVID-19?

    4. In the last 14 days, have you traveled internationally or to a high-risk area for transmission of COVID-19?

  2. Everyone in the congregation must wear a mask while on the property

  3. Everyone must observe social distancing (at least 6 feet) between family groups – please bring your own lawn chair or blanket, hat, sunscreen, water, etc.

  4. Touchless worship only

  5. We will dispense with choral and congregational singing, and liturgical responses

  6. Only one person is allowed in the restroom at a time
