In the heart of the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bay Ridge, a historic Lutheran church stands as a sanctuary for its community and a home for its diverse membership. Now, in this time of pandemic, Good Shepherd Church has opened its doors to serve needs that go well beyond the spiritual. We now operate a food pantry that feeds hundreds of families every week and have hosted four vaccine clinics, providing vital protection to nearly 2,000 people, many of whom would have no other access.
We invite everyone from Bay Ridge and beyond to join us in our spiritual and public missions. Please donate as generously as you can and contact us with questions, ideas and requests for prayers.
May the peace of God and our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all.
The Next Hybrid Service will be on Sunday, September 12, 2021 at 10:45AM

Psalm 116:1-9 (NRSV)
1I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my supplications. 2Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live. 3The snares of death encompassed me; the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; I suffered distress and anguish. 4Then I called on the name of the LORD: "O LORD, I pray, save my life!" 5Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; our God is merciful. 6The LORD protects the simple; when I was brought low, he saved me. 7Return, O my soul, to your rest, for the LORD has dealt bountifully with you. 8For you have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. 9I walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
