About

Excerpt: "Welcome to God’s house at Good Shepherd. We strive to live by Jesus’ command: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31). Just as Jesus first called all humankind in grace and love, so too we offer you a seat at God’s table. We all are created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27), so we believe God loves people of all ages, abilities, and races. God loves all of us, including those who are transgender, non-binary, queer, or straight. God loves our many types of families, in their immense diversity. God loves us without regard for our education, wealth, or faith. Join us in worship today; join us in welcoming a newcomer tomorrow. United, we reflect God’s infinite image!"
