The Shepherd’s Center of Columbia is one of about a hundred centers across the country which are affiliated with the Shepherd’s Center of America.
Grounded in the 23rd Psalm, this interfaith organization was founded as a means for older adults to continue to stretch their horizons, be contributing members of society, and help each other. It supplements the work of local congregations, providing opportunities for personal and spiritual growth. The members are the planners and leaders of all programs.
The Shepherd’s Center is open to all persons, but focuses on those who are age 50+. It is intercultural, interfaith, and interracial.
We welcome you to become a part of our schedule of activities. We provide classes on many topics, so we feel you will find something of interest to you. You may visit one time before becoming a member.
We appreciate that Trenholm Road United Methodist Church, 3401 Trenholm Road, Columbia, SC 29204 provides meeting space for our classes.
Class registration cost is $35.00 per session, which allows you to take as many classes as your time will allow. You are welcome to join any class with an available chair. Feel free to change your schedule if you find a class does not suit you.
