As a precaution, we have suspended all worship activities until it is safe to resume.  It is an uncertain time, and things change by the hour.  But with "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1).  Pastor Bill is available via phone or in person for private absolution and communion - call him at 386-503-2383 for an appointment.  Worship videos will be available on the Church YouTube page.  This page is available 
Shepherd of the Coast is committed to connecting people with God's grace. 
Through word and sacrament ministry, both within and outside of our walls we proclaim God's gifts
of forgiveness, life and salvation in our worship and our ministry.  It is our desire that you will not only
connect  with our Lord, but also with His people as we celebrate, serve and worship together.
