The Church of the Good Shepherd currently has online worship services on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and we have limited in-person availability depending on the State of New Mexico’s status for Grant County (Red, Yellow, Green) during this pandemic time. Following Holy Eucharist, we offer Holy Communion by car drive-through every other week. Online Morning Prayer is on Mondays at 8:30, and online Noonday prayer is on Wednesdays at noon. All times are Mountain Time. Adult Bible Study/ Group Discussion meets after virtual coffee hour on Sundays at 11:00 AM, and Children’s Sunday School meets online from 9:10 am to 9:25 am before church. Other groups such as Education for Ministry and Contemplative Prayer meet regularly online as well.
Silver City, New Mexico, is in Southwestern New Mexico, located where the Chihuahuan Desert and the Pinos Altos and Mongollon ranges meet. The Gila National Forest and Aldo Leopold Wilderness Area are in our backyard. Silver City is a beautiful city nestled in the high desert at 6,000 feet.
Below is information from pre-coronavirus days:
When we will return to having services in the church will depend on decisions made at the Diocese level.
After each Eucharist, join us in virtual fellowship.
Where We Come From
Most of us live in and around Silver City, but we have members from the Mimbres, Pinos Altos, Cliff, Deming, and other towns and rural areas in the region. Our membership is from all over the U.S.
Although we have many cradle Episcopalians, we have a large number of members who come from other Protestant denominations, as well as from the Roman Catholic tradition. Though we range in age from young children to over ninety, the largest distribution is in the 30-70 age bracket. The interaction of the young and old helps create a stability and commitment within our parish family.
Everyone is welcome.
