Welcome, and thanks for dropping by! We are always happy to have visitors
whether for one Sunday or many. On this page you will find links to information
about what we believe, our Pastor and staff, frequently asked questions, and what
you can expect when visiting. Take your time, look around and feel free to ask if you
don’t find what you need.
We like to say that Good Shepherd is small but mighty. We focus on living our faith
and growing in Christ’s love as part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
(ELCA). You’ll find people who care about each other and will care about you, too.
You’ll find opportunities for sharing your talents and your burdens, for social
interaction, spiritual development and growth. You’ve found a place where you can
be accepted for who you are; a place to be comfortable.
Founded in 1953 in the heart of Kettering, Ohio, Good Shepherd grew with the
suburb. The sanctuary cornerstone was laid ten years later in 1963. The building is
easily accessible for worship and fellowship and is clean and inviting. You’ll find
good music, audio-visual assistance and ample parking.
This is a new website, so please bear with us as it grows!
