Shepherd by the Sea Episcopal/Lutheran Mission
Gualala, California

This week, Shepherd by the Sea is offering a "Season of Creation" special service created by Lutherans Restoring Creation: a creation-focused worship service utilizing the lectionary texts for Pentecost 16 (September 20, 2020) . Participants are from all over the country including ELCA Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, lay and rostered leaders, and young activists and scholars. Music is provided by Marty Haugen, the Rev. Dr. Leah Schade, and Pastor John Tirro.

Our service is edited for length.  Lutherans Restoring Creation will offer the full service live on its Facebook page and YouTube Channel at 6:15 AM Pacific time on 9/20.

The Season of Creation, September 1st through October 4th, is celebrated by Christians around the world as a time for renewing, repairing and restoring our relationship to God, one another, and all of creation. The Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America join with other denominations in this international effort for prayer and action for climate justice and an end to environmental racism and ecological destruction.

We are a joint Episcopal and Lutheran congregation and welcome people of all spiritual backgrounds to join us.   Join us in hearing God's word and, when we worship together in person, sharing the bread and wine of the Lord's Supper.  We are currently worshipping online, but look forward to connecting locally in person with our congregation and visitors.

All are welcome!

As baptized Christians, we reach out to the Community through worship, prayer, study, and ministry.

Shepherd by the Sea is a Jubilee Church of the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, operating under a Covenant between the Diocese and the Sierra Pacific Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. 


This site is dedicated to the memory of Fr. Peter Farmer
