Worship

We are in the Sanctuary for worship!   Maskes are strongly encouraged and social distancing is still required. 


Vision Council Response to Executive Order 21-21 Supersedes the protocols of the Vision Council Resonlutions of May 5, 2021 (cited below and have been modified to this change)

Because of our guiding principles of loving our neighbor and welcoming all people, we offer the following consideration: for the safety of young children and immunocompromised people, we encourage you to wear a mask, but we will not be requiring masks at this time.



Beginning May 6, 2021 core ministry groups of 20 or fewer people will be welcome to meet indoors at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.


If at all possible, please hold your meetings outdoors.


Stay home if you are sick.


Guidelines for all gatherings:

a.      All meetings must be scheduled through the church office.


b.      All participants must:

i.                 Sign in

ii.                Sanitize their hands when entering and exiting

iii.               Masks are encouraged please but not required



If it becomes unsafe to meet indoors, the Vision Council, on recommendation from the SMART Team, may close our building for indoor gatherings.



Beginning May 23, 2021 in-person worship will be offered in the sanctuary of Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.


Online worship will continue to be offered weekly. We are going to try to stream it live and ask for your grace during our transition. 


Indoor worship will be guided by “COVID-19 Preparedness Plan Requirements for Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd,” which reflects guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Minnesota Department of Health, and Minnesota Governor Tim Walz’s Executive Orders.


Should local infection data (Total new cases per 100,000 persons in past 7 days; Test positivity rate in past 7 days) enter the category of “Substantial Risk” (New cases: 50-99; Test positivity: 8.0%-9.9%) in-person worship will be discontinued until circumstances permit. The SMART Team will monitor data so that timely decisions can be made.

               (Note data for May 4: New cases: 18.9; Test positivity: 4.3%, both trending down)


Support Day Camp at Church This Summer

Great news everyone!  Although we can’t host our regular VBS week this summer, we are excited to share that we will be hosting a week of Day Camp for our Sunday School Families!  Hiring Camp Staff is a great way to provide an amazing week of faith formation here at church and follow all Covid-19 safety guidelines needed this year.  But, hiring Camp Staff is more expensive than our regular VBS week.  In addition to paying for each Camp Staff (we are expecting 5 of them), we will also be responsible for:

-          Housing all 5 Camp Staff

-          Providing Meals for all Camp Staff

-          Paying for Mileage for all Camp Staff

Here’s where you can help!  You can make a special donation to support Day Camp Here: https://onrealm.org/LCGSDuluth/-/give/now  Instead of the “General Fund”, select the “Day Camp” Fund.  Or, contact Christine in the Church Office for help or if you'd like to drop off cash or check.    


Thank you so much for your support!  We are excited about this new ministry this summer!

Three days of service projects, faith conversations, and fun activities right here in Duluth



Hello families,

Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd is looking for some people to water the flower pots at church. We are hoping to have someone come to church on Monday and Thursday, Pull the hose out of the brown hose holder to the length needed to reach the front door pots.  Then use the faucet key, found in the hose box to turn on water and  water generously.  Also condition the pot by taking off dead leaves.  Then roll up the hose, put the key back in it's spot and you are done. The pots are under the roof so they will still need watering but if it's raining on your day just come the day after. Thank you for your generosity of your time and energy. Any problems can be answered by Cyndi Venberg.
