Administration: The Administration Team oversees buildings and grounds, gifts and memorials, the annual budget, financial reports, investments, and overall stewardship activities.
Christian Education: The CE Team is responsible for developing, implementing and overseeing a well-balanced Christian education program.

For children 4 years to 6th grade, they plan a biblically based curriculum under the leadership of our Director of Christian Education. Shepherd also has a vibrant Youth Group program which includes Middle School (grades 6-8) and High School (grades 9-12) under the direction of our Youth Leader. The CE team also oversees Sunday morning adult education classes and our annual Vacation Bible School.
Hospitality: The Hospitality Team welcomes and follows up with visitors, provides Sunday greeters, oversees coffee/tea/treats on Sunday mornings after worship services.
Mission: The Mission Team coordinates mission programs of local, national and international scope and provides our fellowship with opportunities to support these programs. They regularly support The Gathering Inn, Lazarus Project, What Would Jesus Do (WWJD), St. Vincent de Paul, and sponsor adult and youth mission trips.
Worship: The Worship Team oversees and approves all acts of public worship and sacraments in the life of the church except those responsibilities reserved to the pastor alone. This includes ushers, communion assistants, lay readers, musicians and singers. There is always a need for volunteers interested in serving in these capacities.
