__________Parking Tips Christmas Eve is one of our busiest days of the year at Good Shepherd. Please follow these guidelines to help ensure safety and steady traffic flow in our parking lot. Be aware of the setup. Signage will be posted for exits and entrances. Head south as you leave. We recommend that you head Southbound on Shepherd Drive as you EXIT Church. Avoid overflow parking on Shepherd Drive. If the parking lot is full, please park on Maplefield Road (behind McDonald’s) rather than on Shepherd Drive. This will help with visibility and traffic flow. Carpool if you can. Stay alert and aware of your surroundings. Watch for pedestrians as you are looking for a parking space, especially small children who may make sudden, unpredictable moves.
Worship during 9:29 a.m. and 11:01 a.m. Sunday services is led by eleven eleven, a full contemporary Christian band. Their music is a mixture of current praise and worship songs, as well as original compositions.
The Saturday 5:05 p.m. service is similar to the Sunday Worship Center services, but incorporates a more intimate and acoustic feel.
