We come from many different places in life. And as we come together we discover that our differences are not something we just tolerate, but that our differences are indeed a blessing. So come, children of God, just as you are. Wherever you are on this journey of life and faith, you are welcome here - here in this place, here in this community.
At Good Shepherd we believe in the power of God to change lives through worshiping together and serving each other and our community in a variety of ways. Here you will find a warm and welcoming atmosphere, as well as people who share a love of God and a love for each other while trying to live out their Christian faith. Each weekend we offer three distinctly different worship services, in the hopes that all who wish to worship with us can do so in a style that satisfies their own spiritual needs. We invite you to come and join us at one of these services to give praise and to offer thanks to our God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Our vision is to grow Good Shepherd into a more loving, compassionate Christian community that is excited about actively living out our faith. We strive to form more faithful disciples by:
One of the ministries we are a part of is the Kettering Backpack Program . Every week we pack over 340 bags of food which gets sent home on Fridays with school children who, without it, would not make it through the weekend without being hungry. If you would like to donate food or money to this ministry, please follow the link on the button. If you would like to donate your time, please contact our Director of Youth and Family Ministry, Don Bennett .
College Scholarships Available. Any member of Good Shepherd currently pursuing a 2 or 4 year degree, or Lutheran ordination, is eligible to apply for one of our yearly scholarships. Detailed requirements and applications are now available for the upcoming school year. If you would like to contribute to the Scholarship Fund, please read our charter and contact our Scholarship Committee.
Electronic Giving - We now offer electronic giving. If you would like to automatically send Good Shepherd an on-demand gift, a weekly or monthly gift, or if you would like to give a one-time gift for a special occasion, that is now all possible.
