God never intended for us to be alone. In Genesis 2:18 (The Message), we read, "God said, 'It's not good for the Man to be alone; I'll make him a helper, a companion.'" We were created to be in relationship with one another from the very beginning; to help one another and comfort one another; to laugh together and cry together.

We don't want you to feel alone in this time of uncertainty and change. One of our values here at Church of the Shepherd is relationships, and we are committed to helping you find and maintain strong faith connections whether we are meeting in-person or online. If you're searching for meaningful connection and faith relationships, we encourage you to start or join a community group. Our Pastor of Spiritual Formation, Ben McWhorter-Rush, would be happy to help you take that next step. Take a listen to what one community group member has to say about the importance of the relationships she's formed within her group.
