Dear Neighbor,

I am so pleased and excited to introduce you to Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church of Joppatowne! I am praying that you will worship with us and feel the warmth and welcome of this faithful people. I am certain that you will discover Good Shepherd Presbyterian to be the kind of church where you can be anchored, connected, and growing.

Anchored in Christ ― Good Shepherd is a community church that finds its denominational home in the Presbyterian Church USA. With solid biblical foundations, a tradition of educational excellence and a passion for people in need, the Presbyterian Church USA is committed to justice, to peace and most significantly, to sharing the all-inclusive love of God.

Good Shepherd Presbyterian proclaims the love of God as finding its fullest expression in the incarnation of Jesus the Christ. In Christ, God was reconciling the world and inviting humanity into a relationship characterized by compassion for others, striving for justice and loving relationships. Jesus the Christ serves as our divine companion, an example of how we may live with integrity and our motivation for taking steps forward in the journey of faith.

Connected Together ― Good Shepherd is the kind of church that truly understands community. As a community, the people of Good Shepherd truly do embrace the reality that we are all a family "connected together" in this world. We are called and given the opportunity to share this life in vital relationships and helpful opportunity. Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church is a place where no one remains a stranger for long. We care for and support each other in good and difficult times; we know that it is better to lean on each other than to try to go it alone.

Growing in the Spirit ― Growing is a verb that does describe the dynamic at Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church. As individuals and as a community of faith, we are growing our depth of spirit, we are growing our vision of what it means to be good stewards of God's creation, and we are growing in love. We seek deep and meaningful relationships with those we have known for years and those we have yet to meet. We believe that the changes in our world and community are opportunities for all of us to grow together in the Spirit of God!

We invite you to be on the journey with us! Worship with us, and grow with us. God loves you, and so do we!
