Thanks for clicking on Good Shepherd's website. 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 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 offer discipleship classes and have a God-centered Preschool. 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.
