Welcome to the Church of the Good Shepherd
United Church of Christ

We are an open and affirming congregation. We try hard not to pretend to have the right to judge anyone else. On the one hand, that brings us the simple joy of receiving God’s love and celebrating that love with one another. That perspective helps us take on the challenge of sharing God’s love with all the world without the motivation of guilt. On the other hand, it may cause some to think we don’t stand for much. If we don’t push guilt and judgement, where do we find our identity? If we don’t base our fellowship on like-mindedness and agreement to certain beliefs, who are we?

We invite you to come find out. The answers aren’t easily reduced to a few words, but they are lived out in our community of faith. We have a deep fellowship based on love which calls us to serve God. We have a theological grounding which encourages open minds and honest questions. We take the Bible seriously rather than literally, and we celebrate a faith which is broad enough for all our differences.

If you are looking for a faith community that proclaims that God’s love embraces all people, you will want to participate in Church of the Good Shepherd.

No matter who you are or

where you are on life’s journey,

You are welcome here.
