Good Shepherd began as an exploratory mission by the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod in 1985. Consisting of 7 families, the congregation worshiped in an old Episcopal church building until the congregation purchased its current facility in 2005.
In 1993, Good Shepherd was officially organized as a Lutheran congregation and joined the Wisconsin Synod as a self-supporting church.
