WE LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING TO KNOW YOU AT GOOD SHEPHERD!

 

WHO WE ARE

We are an affirming, diverse community of the Jesus Movement within the Episcopal Church in the Episcopal Diocese of Washington.

WHAT WE DO

We seek to fulfill Christ’s command to Peter: “Feed my sheep”. With God's help we try to give physical and spiritual nourishment to our neighbors in our congregation, our neighborhood, our community, and the world.

WHY WE DO IT

We live out our calling in response to the Biblical mandate to love God completely and love our Neighbor as ourselves.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

The mission of our Church is to proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and to follow the example of the Good Shepherd by:

  • Witnessing to the eternal love that God has for all people, regardless of age, gender, or race;

  • Loving, Caring For, and Encouraging each other with our hearts, words, and actions by living out the truth of the gospel;

  • Responding to God's grace with love, respect, compassion, and help to the needs of others in our local community and around the world;

  • Celebrating the gifts that God has given us in our work and play together, as we seek to fulfill God's purpose for us as individuals and as a Christian community;

  • Working, Worshiping, Praying, and Studying to strengthen our church and its members so that we may fulfill our mission.
