News from the Mission, Service and Justice Team

The Annual Alternative Gift Mission Fair is an opportunity for our church to support regional organizations that share our mission and values, and who serve the people who need it most. This year we have three well-deserving charities from which to choose. On Sunday, December 4, we will have the opportunity to bring whatever financial gifts we may, for one, two, or all three of these amazing places where ordinary people do extraordinary things for those who are the least, last, over-looked, left-behind, and underserved in our world.

Common Ground on the Border

January 12-14, 2023


The Borderlands is the perfect place to explore the arts, touch the culture, and have deeper conversations about the complicated issues that collide here.


In the desert it is sometimes hard to find a cool, safe place to rest, a place where your spirit is renewed by community and refreshed by living waters. We are glad you have found your way here to receive our extravagant welcome.

We hope you will come to know us as a vibrant, relaxed and diverse community of faith, and as a church that gathers to nurture, share and celebrate the wonder of life.

For at The Good Shepherd we are all spiritual seekers who find joy in community; meaning in living faith-filled lives; purpose in seeking to promote justice and compassion; and direction in following in the way of Jesus.


Church Office hours are 9:00 am to 1:00 pm Monday - Thursday.

Phone messages or e-mails are still the best way to communicate with the office.
