A Church of Extravagant Welcome

We are a Progressive Christian church and community.  We believe in a God that is still speaking, a God that is all-loving and inclusive. We are a church that welcomes and accepts everyone as they are, where your mind is nourished as much as your soul. We are a church where Jesus the healer meets Jesus the revolutionary, and where together we grow a just and peaceful world. 



Historically,  Church of the Good Shepherd  has worked to build relationships within our rural community.  Being rural has the advantage of well built paths to address community issues such as hunger, homelessness and lack of economic security.  

 Church of the Good Shepherd supports and partners with local agencies, churches and coalitions to address community issues of concern, and the community work of living out our covenants.
