Shepherd by the Sea welcomes all to its worship services at 10 am on Sunday mornings in Gualala at 38958 Cypress Way.

The Rev. Kemp Segerhammar joins us from Sonoma County to preside on Sunday, April 28th.  In the gospel reading for April 28th (John 15:1-8), Jesus says to the disciples, "I am the true vine, and my father is the winegrower."

On Sunday, May 5th, the Rev. Mary Goshert will preside.

In the gospel reading for May 5th, from John 15:9-17, Jesus delivers a final testimony to his disciples on the night of his arrest. "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for one's friends." 

And on May 12th, the Rev. Dr. Portia Hopkins joins us. The gospel for this Sunday (the seventh Sunday of Easter) is always taken from the long prayer Jesus prays for his followers in John's gospel (John 17:6-19) on the night before his death, and always includes Jesus' desire that his followers will be one as he and the Father are one. 

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!
