Welcome to one of the fastest growing churches on Long Island!


Good Shepherd is about Family. We host many gatherings and affairs that include the entire family.


Our Sunday morning worship services are very family oriented, giving all families an opportunity to come to worship together. This is so important these days when our lives are so busy and we are all involved in individual adventures.


Coming to Good Shepherd is like coming home! One visit with us and you will understand why.

August's Message


I had a bag of them and began planting around the garden some bulbs

with great confidence because the soil we have is quite good… Then I

thought: “Why not put some in at the church as well?” I did this but

despaired because the soil seemed hard, sandy and rocky. I persisted.

Got the job done. And promptly forgot all about them. Until this week.


The gladiola’s came up tremendously at the church. At home, not so

good. In fact, none are even flowering yet.


My life lesson? Don’t give up even when things seem bleak. Eventually

the love and care you plant in people’s lives will come to full bloom;

especially where you least expect it.


As God tells us in the Bible: “Never tire doing good”.

All Saints Day

For all the saints who have gone before us and those still amongst us that we would like to celebrate. This November is the month of Thanksgiving for God’s many blessings upon us. Especially the people in our lives, we are dedicating a special page in our memorial book to all those saints. Instead of having a thanks-giving financial drive, we are inviting you to give a special donation in honor of a special person that have gone before us and those amongst us that we would like to celebrate. God has blessed us with great people in our lives and in November, we want to lift them up & honor them.

Mitten Tree

It’s time again for our Mitten Tree. We will be set up the first week of October. Items being collected will be gloves, hats, scarves, and socks for children & adults. These items will go to the Navajo Indians. The deadline for our collection will be October 31.
