I'm New

Welcome!

Church of the Shepherd is a place where people can meet Jesus, engage in life-giving community, and everyone is welcome. We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts, and use them for God's glory. And that remains true, even while our building is temporarily closed. We're still gathering in online community and finding ways to continue serving our community. Join us for one of our online services or an upcoming parking lot event!

Our Services

Church of the Shepherd is a place where people can meet Jesus, engage in life-giving community, and everyone is welcome. We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts, and use them for God's glory. We are currently meeting both in-person and online as well as finding ways to continue serving our community. On Sunday mornings, we have two worship services—our blended worship with our choir meets at 9:00 AM and our contemporary worship service with our praise band meets at 10:30 AM.  These two 45 minute in person worship services will also include kid’s ministry opportunities for kids K-5th grade.  We also have a traditional worship service that meets on Saturday nights at 5:00 PM.

Weekend messages will be available online on our Youtube channel, as well as the Church of the Shepherd UMC app beginning at 6 pm CST on Saturdays, and available to view on-demand throughout the week. You can also join us live on Facebook on Sundays at 8:40 am for a live online gathering called The Living Room. It's hosted by our pastors and is a time to connect, laugh together, and center ourselves before heading into the worship service at 9 am.

Let’s Connect & Get to Know Each Other

Throughout the year, we host events both in-person and online for people who are still checking us out. If you're new here, then our MOVE class is the perfect first step toward really getting to know us, meeting new people, and becoming more involved.

We schedule MOVE events throughout the year. Check back here for future dates. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our Connections Director, Robin Long.
