Reservations requested - Sunday services (due to seating) social distancing, masks for those not vaccinated, no singing or bulletins.
Worship at Good Shepherd UMC is always centered in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We hold a traditional, evangelical Wesleyan theological perspective which means that God’s grace and forgiveness is for all people and we are going to show our love to God and our neighbor in many ways. We encourage participation and involvement of everyone in our worship services. We begin each service with a few hymns to help us focus on worshipping God. Everyone is welcomed and then we prepare our hearts for worship in prayer and silence. Throughout the rest of the worship time we experience the presence of the living God in prayer, praise, songs, special music, the reading of scriptures, the celebration of the sacraments of baptism or communion and the sermon.
Our policy remains; IF YOU ARE VACCINATED MASK WEARING IS OPTIONAL IN THE BUILDINGS. If you are not vaccinated, you should mask to protect yourself and others.
Those with a compromised immune condition, even if vaccinated should mask in public. We will not ask for vaccination status. We will encourage vaccination and will follow CDC Guidance about gatherings of mixed populations.
Be AWARE of the DELTA VARIANT which is more infectious than previous variants and is soon to become dominant in the U.S. The vaccines do offer protection.
In Person Sunday Worship- reservations appreciated - Sundays at 10am in the Sanctuary.
In Person Saturday Worship - reservations appreciated - Saturdays at 4:45pm in the Chapel of the Ministry Building.
BOTH services are held inside. We have limited seating.
ONLINE WORSHIP - Because we are recording SAT 4:45pm Worship for our online worship content it will not be posted and available until SUNDAY MORNING on FaceBook and YouTube. Please be aware and adjust your viewing times.
Don’t worry about what to wear. We are in Florida not back home. On Saturday evening everyone is respectfully casual in shorts and shirts or blouses and skirts. On Sunday a few will be in suits, if it is cold outside, but everyone else is comfortably dressed. Come as you are and you are guaranteed a warm welcome. You will only be a visitor once – after that you are part of the family.
PLEASE NOTICE that our worship service times do change throughout the year to accommodate the increases in attendance because of the arrival of the seasonal residents to our community.
Monday - Thursday
