Welcome Home!

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church believes that God’s love is freely given to all regardless of race, ethnicity, age, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation or gender identity. No matter who you are, how you are spiritually, or where you are on life’s journey, we welcome and embrace you in the name and love of Christ. Good Shepherd is located on Route 15, in Jericho, Vermont. Your journey here will be blessed with the beauty of the Green Mountains. Your time with us will be blessed with a warm welcome, inspiration and outstanding music.

This Sunday ~ Another Outdoor Worship Service!

We now worship outdoors each week, weather permitting, and gather on the church grounds at 9:00am.

Remember to bring a folding chair to save set-up and clean-up time and effort. Park in the front lot – there will be accessible spots marked near the top of the driveway leading down.  If it rains, the service will be indoors, so bring a mask just in case.  After the service, we’ll share in Fellowship conversation. 

It’s pleasant  to worship outside in nature; it’s kid-friendly; and it allows most of us to be without masks.  Warm weather is short-lived, so we’re taking advantage of it while we can.  Hope to see you there!

A Special Summer Online Worship Opportunity!

Our New England Synod of the ELCA has provided a special online worship service for congregations to use as desired this summer.  It was recorded at one of the online services from the Synod Assembly last June, and there is wonderful music and a diversity of people involved from throughout our New England area. You are encouraged to access it at any time, especially if you are unable to attend an in-person service at Good Shepherd, or for additional spiritual inspiration as we continue to enjoy the remaining weeks of summer.

Learn about Our Faith and Our Response to God’s Gracious Love

Worship at Good Shepherd draws from liturgical traditions, shaped for contemporary people. The service settings, drawn from the Evangelical Lutheran Book of Worship and other resources, offer a rich variety of music that is traditional, contemporary, and global. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated and all who believe in Christ’s presence in this sacrament are welcome at the Lord’s Table. Those too young to commune may receive a blessing rather than bread and wine.

Good Shepherd is served by Rev. Dr. Arnold Thomas. Pastor Arnold can be reached on the church phone at 802-899-3932, on his cell phone at 802-503-9666 or by email at pastorthomas@goodshepherdjericho.org. Please feel free to contact him for pastoral care concerns.
