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.

Pastor's Message


Yesterday was a special day as we remembered our Veterans who have served and who continue serving our country… I was especially thinking of my father who served first in the Danish Army as Germany invaded his homeland, then in the Resistance throughout the war – in fact his mother hid downed American and British pilots in their basement – and after the war. He and his family served to make their country a better place.


On the home front, we too are called to serve to make our country a better place.


Our Pumpkin Patch has done that once more, sending support to the Native Population of New Mexico.


This Sunday, our Sunday School Children, at the 10:30 Service, will be filling shoe boxes for the underprivileged children to help make their Christmas brighter. After the second service, if they need help, you are invited to pitch in!


We are all called to serve. Perhaps not as dramatically as many of the people we know, but still critical… It is all a response to God to whom we give because He has first given us.


BIBLE Passage for the day:

1 Chronicles 16: 8

Give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name, make known His deeds among the people.
