First Good Shepherd Lutheran Church ("we” or “us”) values its visitors’ privacy. This privacy policy is effective March 28, 2022; it summarizes what information we might collect from a registered user or other visitor (“you”), and what we will and will not do with it.

Please note that this privacy policy does not govern the collection and use of information by companies that First Good Shepherd Lutheran Church does not control, nor by individuals not employed or managed by First Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. If you visit a Web site that we mention or link to, be sure to review its privacy policy before providing the site with information.

What we do with your personally identifiable information

It is always up to you whether to disclose personally identifiable information to us, although if you elect not to do so, we reserve the right not to register you as a user or provide you with any products or services. “Personally identifiable information” means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as, for example:

  • your name, email address, phone number, billing address, and shipping address
  • your name, user ID and password
  • credit card information

The above provision may not be appropriate if credit card information is handled by a payment processor.

  • any account-preference information you provide us
  • your computer’s domain name and IP address, indicating where your computer is located on the Internet
  • session data for your login session, so that our computer can ‘talk’ to yours while you are logged in

If you do provide personally identifiable information to us, either directly or through a reseller or other partner, we will:

  • not sell or rent it to a third party without your permission — although unless you opt out (see below), we may use your contact information to provide you with information we believe you need to know or may find useful, such as (for example) news about our church, services and modifications to the Terms of Service;
  • take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction;
  • not use or disclose the information except:
    • as necessary to provide services or products you have ordered, such as (for example) by providing it to a carrier to deliver products you have ordered;
    • in other ways described in this privacy policy or to which you have otherwise consented;
    • in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined (for example, statistical compilations);
    • as required by law, for example, in response to a subpoena or search warrant;
    • to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;
    • as necessary to enforce the Terms of Service;
    • as necessary to protect the rights, safety, or property of First Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, its users, or others; this may include (for example) exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.

Other information we collect

We may collect other information that cannot be readily used to identify you, such as (for example) the domain name and IP address of your computer. We may use this information, individually or in the aggregate, for technical administration of our Web site(s); research and development; account administration; and to help us focus our marketing efforts more precisely.


First Good Shepherd Lutheran Church uses “cookies” to store personal data on your computer. We may also link information stored on your computer in cookies with personal data about specific individuals stored on our servers. If you set up your Web browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Firefox) so that cookies are not allowed, you might not be able to use some or all of the features of our Web site(s).

From Pastor B

God has been good to us at FGS. We’ve been at the same location since 1940. Over that time span thousands have been served through her church and school ministries. 

Many of our buildings that have provided for these ministries are in need of major upgrades. Proper heating and cooling for the church sanctuary is a top priority. Heating and cooling for the upper school is also in need of replacement along with other renovations. Our buildings have been GOOD to us over the decades and have served us well. We need to be GOOD to our buildings so that we can continue serving the Lord by serving others.

Now is the time to support this FunRaising Appeal for the GOOD of FGS, MVCS and our community. Now is the time to be GOOD stewards of our God-given campus and keep it going for years and decades to come.

Please get behind this effort and be GOOD givers for the sake of the GOOD Shepherd who “works for the GOOD of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”

-Pastor B
