Upon Entering

We are located at 1310 Shepherd Drive Naperville, IL 60565. You may enter any of the three primary entrances for weekend services. Upon entering our church, you will be greeted by our welcome team! Depending on your needs, they may direct you to our Connect Center, located right inside the main entrance (follow the signs). They can also help you find our worship spaces, restrooms, children’s check-in, or your morning cup ‘o joe!

What to Wear

We want you to feel comfortable while here, so please feel free to dress however you like! Some dress casually; you’ll see some folks in shorts or jeans. Others prefer to be more dressed up in collared shirts, pants, and dresses. Come as you are, and be yourself! 

Connect with us!

In-person? New visitors who attend in-person may fill out a connect card, which you will find in the seatbacks in each worship space. Submit your card at the Connect Center and enjoy a free hand-crafted beverage from the Cornerstone Cafe! Online? If you have attended our ministry events or services online, we want to meet you! Please fill out an online connect card.

Realm Get connected!
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A REALM ACCOUNT, SIGN IN HERE: onrealm.org/GoodShepherdNaperville/SignIn   What is Realm? Realm is a real ministry tool. Realm is an online ministry tool designed for real time connection. It helps our church connect with you and you connect with us. If you consider yourself part of this church family, you’ll love it. Realm allows you to manage your personal information and who is allowed to see it, control your giving, and keep in touch with the groups that matter to you.  Why use Realm? Realm strengthens church connections. Being the church doesn’t just happen at the church. Realm helps us serve you better and leads this church well between Sundays. Everyone can be connected from anywhere at any time, right from our mobile devices. It engages everyone in the life of our church by supporting the healthy relationships essential to our church’s mission. We’ll stay organized, and you’ll stay informed about all of the opportunities for fellowship. When we share life together, we will grow together. What about my privacy? Realm is safe, private, and secure. Your privacy is one of our greatest concerns. Realm is only made up of the people in your church, it’s not like a social network that’s open to everyone. Realm keeps your data safe and gives you control over what information you share and who can see it. What about giving? Realm gives you control over your giving. Giving should be easy, and Realm places giving right in the palm of your hands. You may set up recurring gifts, view your giving history, and make changes at any time. Realm automatically records all electronic gifts and adds them to your giving record making it easy for you to give, and easy for our bookkeeper to track. How do I use Realm?
