Tom Chapin



Three Time Grammy Award winner Tom Chapin will perform in concert at

the Javarita Coffeehouse as a fundraiser for the Green Valley/Sahuarita Sa- maritans, a local humanitarian group doing lifesaving work along the border. Tom Chapin’s remarkable musicianship, great songwriting, and personal warmth shine through in his many award-winning recordings and videos, but especially in his concerts, which are special experiences for young and old alike. His career spans five decades and over 27 albums. Hearing a quiet singer such as Chapin sing a quiet romantic song is still one of the more serene pleasures of pop music. Tickets can be bought at the door or online here.


Our annual Stewardship Campaig began on Sunday, January 8, with Commitment Sunday two weeks later on January 22. Please consider your financial commitment and step up to pledge this Commitment Sunday.

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.
