November’s Sacred Space: Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church
November 21, 2019 @ 9:45 am - 11:15 am
The journey continues on Thursday, November 21, as we visit another sacred space. Join Diane Conroy-LaCivita as she travels to Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church in Loudonville.
Lutheranism is one of the largest branches of Protestantism that identifies with the teachings of Martin Luther, a 16th-century German reformer. Luther’s efforts to reform the theology and practice of the church launched the Protestant Reformation.
Over fifty-five years ago, there was a response to a community in need. In August 1960, the Board of American Missions of the Lutheran Church in America sponsored a mission developer who undertook a door-to-door religious survey in the Loudonville area. As a result of the interest shown by residents of the area, Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church was officially organized on April 16, 1961. The first church building was constructed in 1965 at its current site. In 1988, a new sanctuary and entry were built, along with extensive renovations to the original building. Additional renovations took place in 2013.
