THE ENTRY

There are a lot of entry ways into Shepherd Church. Maybe your first experience with Shepherd was through a worship service, an event like Trunk ‘r Treat, our elementary school, children's day care, or ShepNaz Basketball league. Regardless, we are glad you’re here. 


Welcome to Shepherd Church. 


PLAN A VISIT

THE welcome ROOMs

In our homes we invite friends to “come on in” past the entry way and into the living room so we can get to know each other better. We sit down, maybe have a cup of coffee and talk awhile… Often people visit churches, but never seem to get very far away from the “entry environments”—even when they genuinely want to get connected to some friends. We never want that to happen. We’ve come up with some ways to get a little better acquainted. We have an online church directory called The Loop     and we encourage you to login and add your name and family so we can help you get plugged in.  


Also, stop and introduce yourself in the lobby at the Information and Hospitality Center. Soon you’ll receive an invitation to a NEXT STEP DINNER.” It’s a no-pressure, good time of food and fellowship with some of Shepherd’s leaders. If you feel like you’d like to know some basic beliefs of Shepherd Church and get an idea of the ministry priorities here, you’ll receive an invitation to what we call, “NEED TO KNOW.” It is a time where our pastors welcome smaller groups, share about basic beliefs of the church and enjoy some more good food together.

Behind the scenes at every church, there exists an abundance of administrative needs—from organizing multiple ministries to registering members for events to enrolling kids for Christian Education and getting correct t-shirt sizes ordered. Much like a duck swimming in the water, most of the hard work is done behind the scenes. 


The Loop  helps ShepNaz to streamline administration and increase community through its web-based church management software. It's easy to login and stay connected using this tool!  If you need help with this, stop by the Information and Hospitality Center in the church lobby on Sundays or come into the church office and we will help you.

discipleship

Ever notice that your best friends gather around your kitchen table? At Shepherd, we believe that consistent life transformation happens best in a small group setting. It is where we can let our guard down among friends and simply do life together. This “kitchen experience” begins with a session together called “WELCOME TO SHEPHERD.” From there, we strive to connect you to a small discipleship group or class and help you plug in to an area of ministry.
