Spiritual Caring

Good Shepherd Lutheran Community is a serving arm of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We strive at Good Shepherd to provide spiritual care for the residents, families, and employees. Each week, we provide a Bible Study for Residents of Nursing Care and Residents of Shepherd’s Village. We also offer monthly Communion Services, a Friday Worship for the Cognitively Impaired, and a mid-week Worship opportunity for the residents of Shepherd's Village. Roman Catholic Residents are offered weekly Rosary and monthly Mass through Clergy of St. Francis Borgia. Each weekday morning, the residents participate in devotions and the Chaplain makes regular visitations with residents. Local clergy are encouraged to join their residents for visitation, devotions, bible studies and communion. We invite any residents', families and friends to join us for Worship. Sunday Worship service begins at 10:00 AM and we also provide Worship on Holidays.

Employee Testimony about Good Shepherd

I love working here because I love children very much. My mother was an Early Education Center Director and it is wonderful following her footsteps. Knowing that we have the power to make such a big impact in these children’s lives gives me great satisfaction; because of that, working at Good Shepherd is wonderful! -- Olga Hansen, Director of Shepherd’s Flock Child Development Center
