Important Message - Our building is temporarily closed,  but we will still gather in community online. Please read important updates regarding worship and activities at Church of the Shepherd in light of the COVID-19 concern.

Life is better together.

Join in!
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 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!

MOVE is the best next step you can take to discover where we've been, where we're going, and how you fit in and can play a part in the ways God is at work. Learn more here.
EXPLORE is a space where we can grow in our faith and connect with one another by learning more about Jesus, the Bible, and the church. Learn more here.
Small Groups are offered throughout the year to help you connect with others and grow in your faith. There are groups for all ages and interests. Contact Ben McWhorter-Rush to find a group or start a new one.
