Back to Church Sunday

1-1-1-A-Celebration-Sunday

Did you know that most people who have stepped out of church have not lost faith in God? We have found that a physical move, a change in schedules, or being hurt by Christians or a church before have effected many when it comes to being in Christian community.

At The Shepherd’s Fellowship, we have a huge heart for those outside of church … especially those who have been hurt before. Many of us, including myself can relate due to our past church experiences.

However, we find it’s clear in the Bible that God has created us for community – to work together, encourage each other, enjoy life together, worship together, and help each other. We see that God adopts us into His family and not to be orphans in Christ.

What we have found that if you chase after Biblical community, there is a real beauty in the messiness of true community. Many who have not felt comfortable in other types of church communities have found a home at The Shepherd’s Fellowship.

With this in mind, we want to take a moment and invite you to “Back to Church Sunday” on September 21st. Our Sunday morning gathering will start at 10:30am and will include music, a study on community, and (weather permitting) a cookout after for any who want to hang out. There will also be kid’s ministry going on with TSF Kids for babies – 5th grade for those who wish to plug in.

We will also be celebrating on this day our ten year anniversary as a church with several faces from over the years coming back to celebrate with us. This also includes several musicians from different seasons of our church past to worship with us.

We don’t expect this invite to serve as enough to give you a feel for who we are and why you should give church with us a chance so please stop by our web-site and learn more about us. If you have any additional questions, touch base with me through our leadership page and I’ll help any way I can. Hoping to see you!
Blessings,

Pastor Tom
The Shepherd’s Fellowship

How can you have unity with the rest of the body of Christ when you don’t even feel plugged in anymore?

Maybe you have been out of church for awhile. Maybe you feel like the mistakes you have made are too big for Christians to accept you. Maybe you have been hurt by church, a pastor, or other Christians before.

None the less, you remember what it was like before the disconnect. You remember that once upon a time, there was real community, real love, and real benefit to being in relationships with brothers and sisters in Christ. It just seems hard to get back to…..

Peter understands. We understand. This study is a realistic look at the things that make us feel disconnected and how we can get back the freedom in Christian community we once enjoyed.
