Good Shepherd Community Church


As we reopen for in-person services at GSCC, your health and safety is the upmost priority for us. We have taken extensive precautions to keep GSCC as sanitary as possible.

  • While masks are no longer required, they are encouraged for all ages while you are not at your seat.
  • Please maintain a touchless environment, i.e. no handshakes, hugs, fist bumps, high fives, etc.
  • Social distancing is required.
  • To maintain a touchless environment we will not be providing coffee or snacks. The water fountains are turned off so please bring your own refreshment with a lid to service if needed.
  • Bulletins and communion packets will not be available.
  • Greeters will open doors for all guests.
  • Everyone temperature will be checked.  Anyone with a temperature of 100.5 or higher will not be allowed to stay.  (CDC Guidelines)
  • Everyone coming in will be offered hand sanitizer and a smile in place of a handshake.
  • To maintain social distance, the maximum capacity of the sanctuary is 250.
  • Ushers will be positioned at the sanctuary doors and throughout the sanctuary.

    Ushers will seat all guest by family units, and will leave the recommended spacing (2 seats) between units.  We will seat from the front of the sanctuary to the back.

  • We will dismiss by rows from back to front of sanctuary.  Once dismissed, please exit the building.

  • No offering will be taken during the services.  Tithes and offering can be placed at the offering boxes located at the sanctuary doors or you can give virtually on the GSCC Connect app or at

  • All areas will be cleared after service so that the area can be fogged with sanitizing solution.

  • We have installed UV Air purifiers to sanitize the air.

GSCC NextGen is meeting in person once again.

Like our redesigned weekend services, we’re taking additional steps to keep our environments safe (and fun) for your family.

- We’ve increased hygiene and cleaning protocols in our spaces during and between services.

- We have modified room layouts to promote social distancing.

- We have restructured our curriculum with contactless games and individual activity packets for each child to use so that we can minimize the spread of germs through shared high-touch objects.

- Hand sanitizer is available at check-in and in all classrooms.

When you arrive, be ready for a redesigned check-in process to help support a safe environment.

- Everyone will have their temperature taken at the entrance.

- While masks are no longer required, they are encouraged for all ages while you are not at your seat.

- We encourage you to only send one parent into GSCC Kids Jr for drop-off and pick-up to help limit traffic in the hallways.

- Be sure to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before entering and upon exiting GSCC Kids. Encourage your child to do the same.

- You’ll see lots of big waves, but let’s avoid hugs, high-fives, and handshakes.

We’ll all need to work together to help keep GSCC NextGen safe, so please stay home and participate in our Kids Sunday Experience online if your child:

-Has had a fever in the past 14 days.

-Shows any symptoms of COVID-19.

-Has been around anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
