From the bottom of my heart my 2 daughters and I truly thank Father Joe for helping us during a very rough time. There aren't enough words to express how grateful I am. We recently moved here from NJ ...and back home I wouldn't of got help like I did today from Father Joe & this church!! I look forward to attending service here one Sunday and meeting other members! Thank you so much again & everyone please keep my 2 daughters (5y/o & 2y/o) in your thoughts and prayers we could definitely use them!! See More

I have been a practicing Christian and have attended church regularly since I was a child. However, it wasn't until this past year and a half that I began to go to bed on Saturday night so looking fo...rward to attending services the next morning. The Church of the Good Shepherd and Father Joe Mitchell have changed my life in many ways, and every one of those is truly wonderful. I am proud to say that I'm now a confirmed Episcopalian and a member of the Church of the Good Shepherd, and for that I sincerely thank the folks at the church and, most especially, Fr. Joe for his many hours of wonderful instruction which truly came from the heart. I am certainly most blessed and my cup really does "runneth over!" See More

This was a beautiful church I found while visiting when my dad was in the hospital. Everyone was so kind! When my father passed away Father Joe gave a wonderful service for my family and some close fr...iends. We look forward to returning the next time we are in town. See More

An absolutely beautiful setting where you can actually feel God's presence ! (That was my honest reaction at my first visit !). The congregation is friendly and very welcoming. The services are bea...utiful and our Rector gives meaningful and thoughtful sermons. Our choir is phenomenal and adds so much to the service. We are truly blessed !! See More

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd is one of the better things that has happened to me. I get so much out of Fr. Joe's sermons and spiritual support of the entire Good Shepherd Family.

Such a beautiful place where reverence for the Father is felt and experienced. The blessing of the animals was the most beautiful service, I can't even describe it!
