At the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Hemet, California, we strive to be instruments of God’s peace.  We are a fellowship of people from various walks and ways, learning from each other as we all learn from Jesus. Our worship is both traditional (keeping us grounded) and genuine (keeping us current). 

Who Are Episcopalians?


We are followers of Jesus Christ.  Apart from that, there are many differences between us. This is by design!  The Bible says that humankind was made in God’s image.  It doesn’t say that each human is the image of God; it refers to all humankind, together.  

Our Mission


The mission of the church of the Good Shepherd is to be a Eucharistic community which tends and feeds the sheep of Jesus Christ, loving one another as God loves us and reaching out in the name and love of Christ to those in need in our valley, the nation, and the world.
