History

Good Shepherd began in 1953 when 22 people gathered in a local home to worship and pray. Today, our congregation is a diverse blend of backgrounds and ages who are brought together by the desire to serve and worship Christ. Our goal is mutual acceptance, respect, and helping each other to live and grow in Christ's love.

While we are an Episcopal church, most people from Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Evangelical backgrounds feel comfortable with Good Shepherd's worship style. In a unique way, we offer liturgical worship with Holy Eucharist including a biblically inspired sermon in a relaxed manner.
