Our Mission
As men, women, and children united in faith and worship by the word of God, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church exists "TO FULLY KNOW CHRIST'S LOVE AND IN LOVE MAKE HIM FULLY KNOWN" (Ephesians 4:16-19 / Matthew 28:19-20)

We desire to accomplish this by actively:
  • EXPRESSING our fellowship in the Gospel with full submission to God's inerrant Word in all matters of teaching and life.
  • EMPHASIZING personal growth in knowledge and faith through sound Bible study programs.
  • ENCOURAGING each other in love toward obedient Christian living that withstands the devil and worldly temptations.
  • EQUIPPING each member to fully use his God-given gifts in love and service to Christ and His Church.
  • EXTENDING Christ's love individually and collectively to the people throughout Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts, and the world, sustaining a vital and saving relationship with God through Jesus Christ, our Savior, and by God, bringing all possible prospects into this worshiping, ministering, and witnessing community.
Good Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church is a Christian congregation that is affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The WELS is a world-wide church body comprised of over 450,000 members and over 1300 congregations. Its headquarters are in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
WELS Christ's Love, Our Calling

Good Shepherd was organized as a congregation in Rumford, RI, in 1973. We built a new worship facility in South Attleboro in 1991, after outgrowing our smaller church building in Rumford. Our members travel to South Attleboro from various parts of Rhode Island and eastern Massachusetts, although a number of members also live in the Attleboros or nearby communities.

We currently have approximately 160 members of all ages, although a large percentage of our members are from families with children. Strong personal relationships between our members provide for a friendly and open atmosphere where the needs of the individual are met through caring and mutual support. We strive to create a comfortable environment for newcomers.

Come Visit Us!

We are located south of the Emerald Square Mall on Route 1 in South Attleboro, at the corner of Route 1 and May Street, up on the hill across from Pizzeria Uno. If you are using Google Maps, enter 30 May Street as our address.
