SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS LUTHERAN CHURCH
536 E. Schapville Road Scales Mound, IL 61075
We are a family oriented congregation and profess that all who believe in Jesus Christ as their savior are welcome at his Communion Table. We provide traditional liturgical services with choir and hymns.
Our Pastor's messages challenge us to become more Christ like and instruct in timeless Biblical truths and principles.
There is a time for:
•meet some of your neighbors
•catching up on what's going on in the area
•discovering how you can participate in our growing community of faith
We welcome all to worship in the name of our Lord and Savior. We pray that through this time of stillness and song, prayer and proclamation, you may experience the spirit of God at work in your life. Your presence is a blessing to this community.
Our traditional Worship Service is grounded in the Holy Scriptures, follows the Evangelical Lutheran Book of Worship, and the ELCA revised common lectionary. We worship God through traditional hymns of praise and thanksgiving, proclamation of His Holy Scriptures, prayer and sacraments.
Led by Pastor James Mehltretter laity play an active roll during worship by reading scriptures, leading intercessionary prayers, assisting with communion and providing special music, dramas and assisting ministry.
Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday and we invite all who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior to join us at the Lord's table.
As a community of faith we are intentional in the way we educate our children starting with Sunday School through Confirmation. We are blessed with gifted teachers who guide them in learning the Word and Gospel in a fun environment using games, crafts, projects, and videos.
Sunday School starts at 8:45 am between services so you can drop off your children and enjoy the fellowship hour, delve into the scriptures with the Adult Forum or join the Adult choir.
We have much to learn from our children and a baptismal obligation to raise them among God's faithful people. We bring them to the word of God and the holy supper, teach them the Lord's Prayer, the Creed, and the Ten Commandments, place in their hands the holy scriptures, and nurture them in faith and prayer, so that they may learn to trust God, proclaim Christ through word and deed, care for others and the world God made, and work for justice and peace.
