Frequently Asked Questions
Which worship service should I attend?
Whether your preference for worship is contemporary or traditional, formal or casual, here at Good Shepherd, we believe there is a worship service for everyone. To learn more about our different services both on Sunday and during the week, please visit our worship schedule page.
How do I get to Good Shepherd?
For information about both of our locations, visit our campuses page.
Where do I park at the Windsor Campus?
In addition to on-campus parking, space is available on Sunday mornings only at Tarrytown Shopping Center across Windsor, and Wells Fargo Bank one block east on Windsor. If you park on a street, please be sure you are not parked in a fire lane or blocking a driveway. And there is an underground, handicap accessible parking garage off of Exposition Blvd. between Gilbert St. and Windsor Rd.
Is the church handicap accessible?
Yes. Both campuses are handicap accessible.
At our Windsor Campus, both above ground and below ground parking lots have designated handicap parking with access to both the Sanctuary and Parish Life Center. During campus improvements, we identified the need to increase the accessibility of our campus to all mobility levels.
Is there Sunday School for children?
We have wonderful offerings on Sunday mornings for our youngest members at both campuses. To learn more about Children Formation on Sunday mornings, visit our Children’s Ministry page.
Is there a nursery available for young children?
Yes. Every Sunday morning our nursery is available for children ages 3 months - 4 years on both campuses.
Can/Should I take Communion?
All baptized Christians, including children, are welcome to receive Communion in The Episcopal Church. All worshippers are welcome to receive a blessing at the altar platform during the distribution of Communion. Gluten-free wafers are available at the altar upon request. If during Communion you are unable to reach the altar, please notify an usher, and Communion will be brought to you. If you would simply like to receive a blessing, please proceed to the altar and cross your arms instead of holding them out to receive a wafer.
Can I attend events on both campuses?
Yes! Our hope is that all parishioners, regardless of his or her primary worshipping community, would engage with ministries and events on both campuses.
