If you’re new to Shepherd of the Hills or are considering joining us for a service, we hope you’ll find our church to be a place where you are warmly welcomed and feel at home. Our doors are open to people from all backgrounds regardless of where they are at on their spiritual journey. We’ve got lots to offer here at Shepherd of the Hills and are continuing to grow!

We encourage you to explore our website and church building to learn more about our worship services, sacraments, children’s ministries, adult programs, community service projects and more! We hope to see you soon!

Recent Highlights

THE STORY:  On September 7th & 8th at all worship services, we relaunched our church-wide study of "The Story," venturing this time into the Old Testament!  Each week throughout this Fall season, small groups will meet at various times & days at SOTH.  Please consider hosting a small group in your home for a more casual setting!

PRAYER SHAWL/BLANKET NEEDS:  Our Prayer Shawl/Blanket ministry delivers prayer shawls & prayer blankets to people in need of comfort during difficult times. Each shawl & blanket is "like a hug from God," surrounding the recipient in support, love, & faith from our congregation. If you know of someone who has experienced a loss, a season of stress, or another change in life who could benefit from a prayer shawl or blanket, please contact the Office with their information.

CRAFTERS NEEDED!  It's time to start thinking about our annual Bazaar & bake sale!  We will be meeting on the 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month, from 12-1pm & 5-6pm in Fellowship Hall.  Bring your ideas & your skill set!  Childcare will be provided.  Contact Jennifer Walker at if interested in helping out!
