Welcome Home!

Dear Friends, Good Shepherd follows all Covid-19 safety protocols. All group activities are cancelled until further notice. Food Shelf distributions continues with special measures. Also, we now offer limited in-person worship. You can also worship from home on Sundays and Tuesdays. Thank you for your support and understanding.

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.


Word & Sacrament Worship Service – Sunday 9:00am|Refreshments Follow

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 at all services. 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.
