In accordance with the state mandate, everyone over the age of 2 must wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Free masks will be available at the Connect Center.

We will continue to keep you updated in this evolving environment. We continue to pray for our congregation, staff, volunteers and those impacted by the virus.


Please join us on Sundays for our services online or in-person. We’re all in this together! 


We continue to pray for you Church family! The Re-opening team meets weekly and includes members of staff, council and the congregation. We are carefully putting processes in place, making the health and safety of our guests the top priority.

GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES. We are using public health guidance, metrics, and recommendations to lead our Re-opening discussions and to advise our teams to execute plans.

FLEXIBILITY. Please be advised that as the COVID-19 pandemic is a fluid situation. Dates and plans may have to change according to government guidelines or situations in our community.

MINISTRIES. Even though the building may reopen, please note that not all ministries will resume at the same time. The Cornerstone Café is open on Sundays only until further notice.

COMMUNICATIONS. We are committed to keeping the congregation informed, so please make sure to check our website for updates. We will post updates regarding our plan as they become available.

If you would like more information, feel free to reach out to the committee at: reopen@goodshepherd-naperville.org.

A hearty thank you to the reopening team for all their work to ensure a safe and orderly gradual reopening of our building, and to you all for your faithful service and leadership!


Though we are, at times, physically apart, God is using this time to challenge, shape and connect us in new ways, as well as to reach even more people with the Gospel. Thank you for your partnership and prayers as we adjust to the new normal.
