The Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd strives to extend Christ’s own radical hospitality by reaching out in welcome to those around us. The goal is not to tell, but to show—and share!—the love of Christ. And so, throughout the year, we invite our friends and neighbors to special events that will enable us to build relationships with one another and share the joy of life in community.
Wednesdays Feb. 21 - Mar. 2112:15 p.m. & 7:00 p.m.
Find an oasis in the middle of the week when we come together in the Good Shepherd Room to encounter God in Word and Sacrament in contemplative worship.
This year our theme is "Called and Gifted in Community". Together we will engage the gospel reading from the previous Sunday and reflect on questions the reading suggests for our own faith and faithfulness. Come and join us!

QuintEssentially BrassSunday, May 6, 2018 at 4:00 PM
QuintEssentially Brass needs no introduction, especially after their 26 years closing out Mt. Gretna’s Summer Music series and their 18 years of Christmas concerts to benefit the Multiple Sclerosis Society, where they perform to packed houses. These are not just fantastic players; they have heart and soul—and humor!—as well, as anyone who has attended even one of their concerts can attest. Founded in 2009, QuintEssentially Brass is devoted to surprising and delighting audiences by presenting the best in the brass quintet repertoire. These five musicians describe themselves as “a group of friends who enjoy making great music together.” Together, they redefine the brass quintet. Their repertoire is varied, from strictly classical to modern jazz favorites to standard brass music, sacred and secular. They’re truly quintessential: they’re not comparable. Need we add that a great reception will follow the great music? We think not!
