In life, we all experience challenging situations that can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. At Shepherd’s Gate, we want you to know you don’t have to weather the storm alone. We partner with children, teens and adults who are experiencing difficult circumstances by providing opportunities for healing through our free care programs.
Our care groups meet on Thursdays at 6:30p during September-April for a casual, complimentary dinner. Following dinner, individuals join their support group and learn how to navigate through what they are facing and live an abundant life in God. Groups can be joined at anytime.
