Our Auxiliary works to build funds for our specific needs in the Home so we can make it a better place for all who reside here. Our Auxiliary has been active for over 55 years. LHGS is very thankful for the Auxiliary and feel they are an asset of immeasurable value to our home. Membership in the Auxiliary is open to women from all churches and denominations. They meet on a quarterly basis in the Coffee Shop at LHGS, and are always open to new members. If you are looking for a worthwhile venture to meeting new people, getting involved and helping out, please feel free to call any Auxiliary member, or come to their next meeting and ‘join the fun’.


Jeremiah 6:16
“This is what the Lord says:…ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”

Lutheran Home of the Good Shepherd is so blessed to have a Chapel where the beauty of God’s house is made available as a place of public worship. The Chapel is beautiful! However, the beauty of God’s dwelling should not be a material beauty only; rather it should be reflected glory from the splendor of God who is worshipped there. The essence of this glory is the vision of our living God, to which our hearts sing in joyful and ecstatic praise.

The Chapel is a place for proclaiming the Gospel through Word and Sacrament, and a place for sharing faith, hope and joy. May all that is done within the Lutheran Home of the Good Shepherd’s Chapel bring glory to God and service to all people. Ministers from all Christian denominations are welcome and encouraged to visit.
