Get Involved at Shepherd of the Hills
They have a rich history of mission. We invite and encourage you to bring a friend to join us on any Tuesday between 8 am and 3 pm. We have been quilting with fellow Christians from the Methodist, Catholic, and Lutheran Churches in the area. We take an hour off at noon for lunch so bring a sack lunch and enjoy the conversation. Sometimes during lunch we have a short quilting story that someone reads and we have short prayers where we ask the Lord to be with fellow members and friends during illnesses and deaths. You are always welcome and we will be there to teach you and make you feel comfortable We are looking forward to seeing you on any given Tuesday.
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.
Men's Coffee & Bible Study
The men of Shepherd of the Hills meet the 1st & 3rd Thursday of every month at 8:30 am to study a Bible passage, enjoy some Christian fellowship, coffee and goodies, with the occasional full breakfast. All men are welcome to join and we encourage them to bring along a friend. The Scripture passage is generally the Gospel reading for the next Sunday’s Service. Stop by. It’s a great way to start your day. See details of our next meeting on our on-line Bulletin Board.
