Pastors Welcome Message
Welcome to the online presence of Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church. I am the Rev. Cora Lee Meier, Intentional Interim Pastor. Good Shepherd is an engaging congregation with a wide breadth of people who love to worship and share in the ministry of Jesus Christ. The church is full of life and welcomes you to worship on Sunday mornings, to join Bible study and prayer throughout the week, and to social events to get to know each other better.
During this time of transition the congregation and I, as interim pastor, will be working on the following tasks:
- Examine the history of the congregation and work through the transition dynamics that usually follow the departure of a pastor.
- Seek to confirm and identify current issues facing the congregation and develop ways of dealing with them.
- Develop a vision for the congregation’s mission.
- Examine the congregation’s linkage with synod, conference, church wide units, ecumenical organizations, and the resources that may be available for ministry.
- Prepare for the arrival of the new pastor.
This is an exciting time to get to know Good Shepherd Lutheran because growth and learning will be the focus. Get to see who this congregation has been and where God is leading now. Your presence and voice are welcome and needed here. Together Good Shepherd is “Seeking, Serving and Sharing Jesus.” Won’t you be along for that journey?
