No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey ... you are welcome here!

Read the May Newsletter!




* In person on the Amistad Patio

* Live streamed on our Facebook page


Beginning May 2, one service only

(traditional), at 9:00 am.


On alternate Sundays, a Spirited Traditional Service or a Relaxed Contemporary Service


We continue to hold our worship services outdoors on the Amistad Patio. 

Because attendance is limited to 100 in order to provide a safe distance environment, it is necessary to make a reservation in order to attend. Please be sure to indicate how many people will be attending from your household.

Masks are required and seats will be placed at a distance. We look forward to worshiping together!

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.
