Wondering what your next step is? Not sure where to go next? 
We’d love to help you take a step to grow toward faith.

I'm new to Shepherd, and I would like to learn more....

Newer here? Looking to learn more about us? We would simply love to meet you. Come meet our pastors after worship in the lobby. First Step is intentionally offered for 15 minutes after worship on the 3rd Sunday of the month with an invitation to take a Next Step when you are ready.

I want to take a next step in my faith and my relationship with Jesus....

Explore is an opportunity to really dig deep into the values, the mission, and the path we use to make Disciples here at Church of the Shepherd.

If you're looking to dive into questions like, "what does all that really mean for my own life and community?", then we'd encourage you to check out Explore: Church of the Shepherd & Membership. We'll also talk about membership at COS as well as how we can grow together spiritually and relationally.

If you're looking to understand more about who we are as United Methodists and why we do certain things the way we do, then we'd encourage you to check out Explore: Faith, Beliefs, and the United Methodist Church.

I have  questions about faith and God....

Alpha is a space where you can ask any question without pressure and connect with others who are asking the same questions. There's no obligation to say anything. And there's nothing you can't say. Hear from others and offer your own perspective in an honest, friendly, and open group.

I am ready to dig deeper into God’s Word in the bible with others....

Learning scripture is an important part to growth as a Disciple, and we can have a deeper understanding of God and who we are called to be as Disciples when we spend time studying the Bible. . Disciple aims at transformation, not just information.

I’m passionate about helping others experience God’s love but I don’t know how to approach it or what to say....

Check out “Bless." It's a 4 week Training & Equipping Course
Our Goal is to cultivate a Culture of Discipleship through Relational Hospitality designed to be a natural part of who we are as Christ’s own Ambassadors being sent out into our world. We take and reflect the love of Jesus wherever we naturally go.

TRY COMMUNITY

No matter where you are on your faith journey, life is always better when we do it with someone else.  We'll help you connect in a group with others looking to take a next step to grow relationally and spiritually. If you're looking to find a community of friends, a place to grow and learn, and a place to experience transformation, there's a place for you here! We hope you'll join us soon!

Thinking about starting or joining a group?

We're discovering that relationships have never been more important and impactful than they are right now. A great way to stay connected with others is by starting or joining a community group. Whether it's safely gathering with those you are close to or connecting online, community groups are the best way to stay engaged and continue to grow in your faith with others beyond weekend worship. Take a listen to what one of our community group leaders has to say about the impact his group has had on his faith during this time.
