Visitor Information

Thank you for visiting our web site; we hope that you find it helpful and informative. Whether you are new to Greer or are a long-time resident, we invite you to come and worship with us.

The Episcopal Church homepage is your one-stop resource for information about the Episcopal Church.

Texts Used in Worship Services

In your pew you will find two hardbound books for use during the service. The red Book of Common Prayer contains the order and content for our services. Hymns are found in the blue 1982 Hymnal.

Each Sunday's bulletin lists the order of the service with page numbers for both the Book of Common Prayer and the Hymnal. In the bulletin you will also find an insert with the Collect (prayer) of the day, an Old Testament reading, a Psalm, a New Testament Reading, and the Gospel passage of the day.

All baptized Christians are invited to receive Holy Communion. Those who do not receive communion are invited to the altar rail for a blessing. Please cross you arms over your chest when you come to the altar rail to receive a blessing. You may also receive prayers for healing.

Joining the Church

We are delighted to welcome new members into the Good Shepherd family. During the bishop's annual visit we have Baptism, Confirmation, Reception and Reaffirmation. If you are already a confirmed Episcopalian, you may request a Canonical Letter of Transfer from your former parish to the Church of the Good Shepherd. Call the church office and we will send the request for you.
