Good Shepherd United Methodist Church of Security has a new minister, Mina Nau. Nau has had previous experience with the Mountain Sky Conference of the United Methodist Church, and the UM seminary in Denver, Iliff School of Theology. Nau was born in Los Angeles and raised in Salt Lake City, and her parents were first-generation immigrants from the Polynesian Islands of Tonga. She grew up in the Tongan United Methodist Church and is well -versed in traditions of Home, Church, and School.

Her vision for Good Shepherd is to encourage a faith community to live into an intentional relational discipleship, connecting people with God's love one heart at a time. She encourages us to remember Jesus said, "For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them" (Matthew 18:20). Living in a faith community is based on relationships, and we have to re-think church and how we can show up for ourselves and for one another, building one another up through faith and unconditional love.

During the forced closing, church members have used phone calls and new technology such as Zoom to maintain their faith community.  Now, under Pastor Nau's leadership, they will continue their 60-year mission at 1201 Leta Drive in Security.

All are welcome to attend. You may connect via Zoom, by calling the Office at 719-392-5782 or by emailing [email protected] Send your email information, and the church will send its Zoom information.

If you would like a bulletin and a copy of the sermon sent to your home, please contact the GSUMC office at 719-392-5782 and let the Office Manager Loraine Scoman know you are interested in receiving a hard copy. To learn more, visit
