We are a growing church family in Camarillo that focuses on the basics. We follow Jesus and care about kids. Sunday morning worship gatherings run at 8:30 a.m. (Foundations) and 11:00 a.m. (Fresh Start). 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 other churches Camarillo. We partner with Young Life and Young Athletes for Christ to reach students for Christ. We also offer discipleship classes and have a God-centered Preschool. Listen to Soul Break, our daily radio program, Monday to Friday, on KDAR, 98.3 FM, at 12:30 and 10:30 p.m. We help run a thrift-store outreach in old town Moorpark called Luther's Attic. 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.

Want to 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. It's not just the story of the first New Testament churches, but it's the testimony of how the Holy Spirit operates. The time-line covers 35 AD to 65 AD, but the book isn't about then. It's about now. The 28 chapters answers the question of how the Holy Spirit works -- 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. 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.
