**OUR COMMUNION PRACTICE: Good Shepherd is glad to admit to the altar those who have been baptized, instructed and confirmed in the Faith confessed here, and who are faithfully remaining in that through their regular attendance at this or an altar in communion fellowship with ours. Normally, that would include members in good standing of other LCMS congregations. If you would like to commune here, we are very happy to have you join us. Please understand that admission to this Communion takes some time. You need to get to know us and the faith we profess and how that is lived out in our lives. You won't begin communing immediately, but if you become interested in the Faith which Christ has given to His saints and the way in which Christ gathers His Church to participate in His Divine Liturgy, please speak with our pastor and he will provide instruction so that you may enter into the Communion of saints in this place. It is an exciting, vibrant path which you undertake when you first desire the Blessed Communion of Our Lord! Until you have begun to receive His Saving Body and Blood in the Sacrament, you may come forward and receive a blessing from the pastor at the rail. Also, you may attend all of our services; even more than one on a single Sunday, as our pastor preaches two different sermons each week and you will be learning and growing in the Faith with each one. You may also attend Pastor's Bible Class on Sundays and pray Matins and Vespers with us throughout the week. At Wednesday Vespers, pastor's preaching is often more of a Bible Study, so you will be growing deeply through all of this. Special classes for admission to Communion begin in August of each year and culminate with baptisms and confirmations at the Easter Vigil.
We are located in the Ross Barnet area of Northwest Rankin County, Mississippi, around 11 miles to the east of Jackson.
If you have questions about our communion practice, please call and speak to our pastor at (601) 992-4752, or email him. Or simply talk to one of our members. We'd love you to come, and want you to feel most welcome!
