Shepherd by the Sea welcomes all to its worship services at 10 am on Sunday mornings in Gualala. The Rev. Dr. Portia Hopkins presides this Sunday, April 21st.  Coffee, treats, and fellowship follow the service.

Sunday, April 21st is the Fourth Sunday of Easter. The Psalm reading for this Sunday is the 23rd Psalm, which begins, "The Lord is My Shepherd." In the Gospel reading, John 10:11-18, Jesus says, "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for his sheep."

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!
