CHURCH OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD U.C.C.
AN OPEN AND AFFIRMING CONGREGATION
Spiritually Diverse, Socially Progressive, Authentically Friendly
Church of the Good Shepherd UCC is a progressive, diverse community of faith, friendship and service.
We are a friendly church. Whether it’s a first time visitor or someone whose been attending for decades, we try to welcome each person genuinely. Our goal is nothing short of loving, honest relationships with God and one another.
We are Open and Affirming of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people, their families and their friends. We celebrate their love, lives and ministries both in our church and the world.
We are intentionally anti-racist, seeking justice and equality for all people, everywhere. We work to eliminate racism and prejudice in ourselves, and to honor and celebrate the different racial identities and backgrounds in our church family.
We are inter-generational, with a variety of programs and activities for children, youth and adults.
We’re a safe church. We have policies and practices to assure that every child and adult is safe from abuse of any kind at all times.
We are an active, service-oriented church. We gather food, serve meals, shelter homeless families, provide resources and supplies for under-funded school children, and more.
We don’t all believe the same things – and we celebrate that! Each of us is on a journey of faith, seeking to serve God and walk in the ways of Jesus the Christ as best we can. Our lives lead us down different paths. As community, we strive to love and support one another along the way.
