Who We Are
We are an Episcopal expression of the Jesus Movement. We believe that everyone is a beloved child of God. We strive to see the face of God in each other and everyone we meet. We are not perfect, but we try. We are a devoted to each other and to Christ as we “walk each other home.” Our baptismal covenant unites us with the life of Christ. We believe that everyone has a gift from God and sharing our gifts enriches our community. Our faith is based in scripture, tradition, and reason. Our liturgy is Eucharist-centered and music is a vital part of our worship.
The Good Shepherd Community
Good Shepherd is part of the Episcopal Church of the USA, but you certainly don’t have to be an Episcopalian to come to Good Shepherd. In fact, many of our congregation grew up in another denomination (the service is very similar to the Catholic Church). They may have come to visit, looking for a new place to worship or a good place to bring their family or any number of other reasons.
Good Shepherd is a place where each week we are inspired and moved by sermons which touch our lives and our hearts. It is a place where we are blessed each week with incredible music that lifts our soul. It is a place of joy and laughter shared with a church “family” as close as our own. It is a place where people of all backgrounds, races, sexual orientation are welcomed without hesitation or prejudice. It is a place where children are taught and nurtured in the Sunday School and Music programs to grow up to be become incredible young men and women. It is a place where we have multiple opportunities to learn and deepen our understanding of God together, to serve others together and to have fun together in fellowship.
Good Shepherd is truly a special place where all are welcome at God’s table.
"For Just As The Body Is One And Has Many Members, And All The Members Of The Body, Though Many, Are One Body, So It Is With Christ."
