Good Shepherd Church weekend services are expectant gatherings where we seek and respond to the holy God.
Because of who God is and all He has done in our lives and church, we have much to celebrate. We gather Sundays at GSC to give Him thanks for how He is moving in and through our community, to worship Him for who He is, and to seek and allow Him to transform our lives with His presence and His truth.
We have a primary value of studying the Bible together each weekend. We believe the Scriptures are the inspired word of God, filled with truths to build our lives and church upon, and as we study them, God leads us to a better understanding of who He is, who He says we are, and what our place is in this epic story He is writing.
Each weekend, there is a lot of music in our services. It’s how we usually begin our time together, to focus our minds and hearts on Who we have gathered to celebrate. More than just music, songs of worship are prayers of thanks, awe, need, and devotion that prepare our hearts to be changed.
As we seek God together, we ask that His Spirit would reveal Himself to us. When God does that, we want to respond to Him. This response can happen in many different ways: sometimes we might invite people forward and ask our prayer team to minister to them; other times we sit still in reverence; other times we reach out our hands for God.
Each week, following our study of God’s word, we take time to respond to what we’ve heard through prayer.
Sometimes we simply sit quietly, allowing space for God’s Spirit to speak to us individually. At other times we may be given an opportunity to pray together as a community. There are always people from within our church community who are available to pray with and for anyone who would like prayer for something specific. They are available after each service near the front of the stage.
We create space in our services to worship God by giving of our finances. We do this for a few different reasons. First and foremost, He commands it in the Scriptures and we want to be people who live lives of obedience. Secondly, we believe He is the One who has given us everything we have and this is a way for us to respond to His faithfulness to us. Lastly, we want to be people that are open-handed with our resources so that others will come to know Him. God doesn’t just give us gifts for our own sake but so that we will use them to make His Name great in Northern Colorado and beyond. Click HERE to give.
