We hope CGS feels like home…

Visiting a church can be an intimidating experience.  No one likes to be the new person on the block.  At Christ the Good Shepherd or CGS, we strive to be a church with open arms.  People here are given the room to be themselves.  You will find that there are no expectations of perfection, just real people doing life together.  
At CGS, we have designed our church to function like a home.  
  • You are welcomed into the living room (our worship environment), 
  • You are invited to discover Who God is in the kitchen (our Bible Study environments which include Confirmation). 
  • You are encouraged to experience a life in the backyard (our service environments, which include all our ministries especially youth).
Please don't hesitate to call our office if you have any questions.  We look forward to serving you!
