FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a Foursquare Church


Shepherd's House is part of the Foursquare Family. Foursquare is a Pentecostal denomination that was founded by Aimee Semple McPherson right here in Southern California. For more information about Foursquare's history, beliefs, and current statistics please click on this link: www.foursquare.org




What are the distinctions of a Pentecostal church?


The primary distinction of a Pentecostal Church is that it operates under the fundamental belief that the events that took place at the Birthplace of the Church in Acts 2 are still in operation today and until Christ's return. This belief is centered on what is seen as fulfillment to the prophet Joel in Acts 2:17, " In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams." At a church service people are welcomed and invited to lift their hands in worship, praise God with their voices, and room is made to allow God to speak by His Holy Spirit through one another as described in I Corinthians 12 and 14




Is there something available for my children?


YES! We are focused and dedicated to reaching and shaping the faith of every generation. Our Kids program is led by loving and capable leaders. We have three spacious and age friendly classrooms for Nursery/Toddlers, Pre-School, and Elementary grades (1-6). These classes help shape our children in a safe environment where they can have fun, meet friends, encounter God's love, and grow in their faith.




What about something for teens?


Although our youth group, CrossCulture, is currently small in size, it is big in the priority and activity of seeing young men and women live a committed and transformed life as a disciple of Jesus Christ. CrossCulture Youth meets every Sunday during the 10:45 am service for a time that includes teaching, discussion, games, and always great food/snacks.




WIll I be able to find the church and parking lots easily?


The church is located right on Townsgate Rd. just off of Hampshire Rd. (look for welcome flags at each driveway). You are welcome to park anywhere in the industrial complex and there is also ample parking on the street. We also offer reserved spaces directly in front of main entrance of building for First Time Guests, Parents with Infants, and Seniors.




What, if anything, should I bring to service?


The most important thing to bring with you is an open heart. We also want to strongly encourage to bring a Bible. We read and teach from the NIV (New International Version). You are welcome to also bring a notepad, but we do provide teaching notes and pens. Also, bring someone with you, as we want to reach as many people as possible with the love of God and the Good News of Jesus Christ!




How should I come dressed to church?


We believe in making our services a loving, engaging, and refreshing environment. You are welcome to come dressed in the manner that is most comfortable to you, while honoring the Lord. Everyone in our church is different. Some come dressed up, some business casual, and some come in jeans and shirt.




What can I expect when I attend a church service?


First, you will meet a bunch of loving, genuine people who will welcome you with a big smile! In the service you will experience God's love and liberty in a personal and powerful way. We alwasy say there are three rules at our church: 1) Love One another. 2) This is not a Library. You can talk, respond to the message, babies are allowed in the sanctuary (they can even make noise), and we love hearing "Amen" 3) This in not a Musuem. You can bring in a snack or beverage into the service. Just be ready to share with others (just kidding).
