Pastors Derrick and Tammy Sheppard started the Citadel of Worship in Harker Heights over two years ago.

The nondenominational church has a diverse ministry and is open to anyone in the community.

The Sheppards felt the calling to start a church and a friend helped with the cost of starting the ministry.

The church will celebrate its third anniversary in October.

Along with the Sunday morning services and Wednesday evening Bible studies, the church also has several outreach programs.

These programs are available to anyone in the community, even those who are not members of the church. “These programs are about finding a purpose in life,” said Tammy Sheppard.

The “Girlfriends with Purpose” is a ministry for adult women that meets every third Friday of the month.

“This ministry is women helping women,” said Tammy Sheppard. The “God’s Sweethearts” is a ministry for younger girls ages 10-18. This group meets once every three months. The group works on creating resumes and honing etiquette skills, among other things. God’s Sweethearts will meet again on April 25.

The church is also planning on starting a singles outreach soon.

For the Easter service, April 20, there will be music, food, and a photographer to take pictures.

The Citadel of Worship meets at 11 a.m. on Sunday mornings, at 600 Indian Trail Suite 104 in Harker Heights.

Wednesday night Bible studies are also held at the same location beginning at 7:30 p.m.
