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
SMORGASBORDS WILL RESUME ON MARCH 23, 2017
On the fourth Thursday of each month, March through October, SUMC hosts a smorgasbord for the community. The menu consists of swiss steak and baked chicken, mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy, baked beans, vegetable, salad, rolls, and dessert. A donation of $9 per adult is suggested. All are welcome; meals are served beginning at 5 p.m. in the Musser Fellowship Hall at the south end of the church and continue until 6:30.
Children, 4 years old to 3rd grade, are invited to leave the service, if they choose, after the Choir presentation to attend a Praise time in the Fellowship hall. This time includes age-appropriate stories, videos, music, and activities. There is also a fully staffed Nursery from 9:15 - 10:45 for children through the age of 3. After the 9:30 worship service, led by Pastor Kathy Kursch, cookies and coffee are served for all in the Fellowship Hall.
