There will be no worship service at Shepherd Sunday morning, January 8 due to weather conditions.
This Sunday, January 8, we will be celebrating Epiphany Sunday our 9:00 AM worship service. The Epiphany Gospel recalls the journey of the Magi who came bearing gifts for a new born king. Their visit to King Herod sparked a chain of events rarely focused on as part of the Christmas Season.
