“No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here”

We welcome you to our website, one of many opportunities to learn about who we are and what we are about as disciples of Jesus Christ. Please feel free to access more information by using the links on the left side of this page or better yet, come join us for worship on Sunday morning. You will always be welcomed.

Worship With Us!

We are currently open to worship in our sanctuary. 

Meet Good Shepherd

Meet the staff and clergy, read about our history, and find out about ministries and other activities.

Contact and Directions

Good Shepherd UCC is located at 3940 Mountain Rd Slatington, PA 18079. 

Worship With Us

We are open for in-person worship for those who are comfortable gathering in larger groups. We recognize and affirm that there are those in our wider congregation who are not yet comfortable doing so because they are in a high-risk group, and others who worship online with us because of distance or other equally valid reasons.  Masks are optional and encouraged for those who feel more comfortable with them.

Our Values

Good Shepherd is a faith community that gathers around Word and Sacrament to be nourished, called, and sent into God’s world in witness and service to others in the name of Jesus Christ.  Our church is opened and Sunday Services are held in out beautiful Sanctuary.  All are welcome!
