The Little Church with the Big Heart
We welcome you as you are, with all your joys, fears, doubts, and questions, with no strings or agendas.
We welcome you for where you’ve been, with all the gifts and hurts you’ve received from other places and people in your life. God loves you … no matter what.
We welcome you into a community. We pray together. We gather every week to look and listen for God at work, to refuel for daily life, and to go back out to serve the world.
We welcome you into Christianity. We follow and trust in Jesus Christ, the very face of God. We baptize with water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We prepare for baptism as groups of people who grow and learn together.
We welcome you to the Episcopal Church. We’re an old church with many traditions, and we’re also changing and growing. We take our lead from the Bible, church tradition, reason, and personal experience.
We invite you to join the Church of the Good Shepherd, and we pray that it may become your home base for a faithful life.
