Welcome to our web site. As you look around, I hope you get a glimpse of the life of the congregation here at Shepherd United Methodist Church.
We are people who worship together, work together, and fellowship together. We take seriously Jesus’ commandments that we are to love God with all that we are and all that we have, and that we are to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. We care for one another, people in our local community and in our world through prayer, service, and mission giving. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we strive to be the people and faith community God created us to be.
You are invited to join us. If you are passing through and looking for a place to worship, or if you are looking for a more permanent church home, you are welcome here.
Peace and grace,
Pastor Kathy Kursch
