We are a growing church family in Camarillo that focuses on the basics. We follow Jesus and care about kids. We gather for worship on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Our student ministry, Crave, meets every Sunday at 5:30 p.m. We host and encourage a variety of small groups during the year. We work side-by-side with 20-some other churches Camarillo. We partner with Young Life and Young Athletes for Christ to reach students for Christ. We stand with and work with dozens of Bible-teaching churches in Ventura County. We also offer discipleship classes and have a God-centered Preschool. We run a thirft-store outreach in old town Moorpark called Luther's Attic, serving the community. And we also assist in a coffee house outreach during the summer in Naknek, Alaska, providing hospitality, friendship, Wifi and a good cup of Joe at a coffee shop called The Net. We teach the Bible, verse-by-verse and build families, showing people how to get in touch with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We are affiliated with a Christ-centered family of 270 churches across the country called the AFLC. To learn more about the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations, see www.aflc.org.

Go on a 32-year journey from Jerusalem to Italy with us?
The Apostle Luke walks us through 28 chapters in the "Fifth Gospel" -- the story of the Acts of the Apostles. We call it "Acts" for short, but the story covers three decades. It's not just the story of the first New Testament churches, but it's the testimony of how the Holy Spirit operates. Not so much the "Acts of the Apostles," but the "Acts of the Holy Spirit." And when you get right down to it, the book isn't about then. It's about now. How does the Holy Spirit work when he calls, gathers, enlightens and gathers his people into fellowship groups. He did it in Acts -- from Jerusalem to Cyprus and Antioch and Ephesus and Greece to the Italian central city of Rome. And he does it now.
Join us on a 32-Sunday journey through the Book of Acts, and see if you can see yourself in the middle of it.
Good Shepherd's Front Porch office is located near Old Town Camarillo at 380 Arneill Road, just north of the 101. You will find the church offices open Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., near the back of the Connection Center in the middle of the campus. For free downloads of Sunday messages or Soul Break radio programs, click on Listen (above right) and download messages on the Sermon Audio or Soul Break tab. If you join us on Sunday morning, you can enjoy Bible study, fellowship and two worship gatherings.
Call or write if we can help.
