You are welcome at the Church of the Good Shepherd!
The Church of the Good Shepherd is an Episcopal community of joyful believers, where children

are full members of the church. We experience Christ in our liturgy, in prayer, in our work for 

justice and peace, and in each other. We find strength and resilience in the combined abilities of 

all our members. We strengthen our faith and understanding through formation and community 

engagement. We take care of one another and our neighbors. We welcome you.
