Inter-generational day of quilting
A Saturday the end of February, 2020 there was a inter-generational day to make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. The youngest was five years of age and the oldest were in their seventies and many in-between. Many quilts were made. We had over thirty individuals attend.
We also have a group of women who tie quilts every month. They meet the third Monday each month starting at 9 am. Anyone who would like to help make quilts for Lutheran Word Relief is welcome to attend.
Men's Coffee & Bible Study
At the present time the Men's Bible Study meet by Zoom. If you are interested in attending please call pastor for more information. They still meet on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday every month at 8:30 am. It's a great way to start your day.
Here at Shepherd of the Hills our youth group is comprised of grades 6 through 12 aged youth. Our group works on activities that strengthen their sense of stewardship, community, worship & fellowship. They sponsor the Super Bowl soup & sandwich lunch for world hunger and shop for needy youth every year at Christmas time. They lead worship and actively participate in worship as needed by Pastor. They perform fund-raising efforts throughout the year so that every three years they can attend the ELCA National Youth Convention. There are five school districts represented in our congregation, making organizing activities a challenge, but it also offers a way to build new and lasting friendships. We are blessed with a small but active group of kids and they enjoy fantastic support from our church body.
All women members of our congregation are members of the Women of the ELCA and all Circle Units welcome participating members to join any of the following Circle meetings. We meet monthly to enjoy fellowship, study scriptures, participate in prayer and support each other.
