Shepherd by the Sea welcomes all to its Sunday morning worship service held at 38958 Cypress Way, Suite 2, in Gualala from 10 am to 11 am.  Refreshments and fellowship follow the service.  Please join us! 

The Rev, Jeff Cave will preside this coming Sunday, May 26th, which is Holy Trinity Sunday.  The Gospel for the day is from John 3:1-17, which contains these beautiful words: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”

And on June 2nd, the Rev. Dr. Portia Hopkins joins us. 

Coffee, treats, and fellowship follow the service. 


Christ is risen! Jesus is alive, and God has swallowed up death forever.  

Shepherd by the Sea is a Protestant congregation open to the community in Gualala and the Mendonoma area. Our roots are in the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and our worship liturgy is drawn from both traditions. 


Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we would like to meet you. All are welcome to join us!
