At Shepherd of the Hills we believe, teach and confess that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord, and that through faith in Him we receive forgiveness of sins, eternal life and salvation. Being "Lutheran", our congregations accept and teach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teachings of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Word alone.
Salvation is the free gift of God's grace for Christ's sake alone.
Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers.
The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.
Come Worship With Us!
When we worship with other Christians, receive the Lord's Supper and pray, we come close to God through His Son, Jesus Christ, and find forgiveness and new hope for living each day. At Shepherd of the Hills we believe in God's plan of eternal salvation through faith in the dying and rising of God's Son Jesus Christ and join together in worship to celebrate the Good News. Shepherd of the Hills offers a Traditional service each Sunday morning. Our services are welcoming, practical, and serve as a powerful witness to God's love and forgiveness.
Growing Spiritually Through The Word
We also encourage spiritual development and Christian living and offer a variety of classes and groups that apply the Bible's truths to individuals' lives and help people understand what it means to be a Christian in the 21st century.
Bible Studies present an excellent opportunity to deepen your understanding of God's Word, to explore today's challenging issues, and to experience the support and encouragement of other Christians. We invite you to join one or more of our classes today!
In Christ's Service,
Pastor Mark Darnstaedt
Starting Sunday April 27th, we will would like to begin a new Bible Study to coincide with our revitalization activities. Its called the 30 Day Church Challenge. The 30-Day Church Challenge is designed as a day-by-day challenge to help develop the spiritual foundation and disciplines of the members at our church. This 30 day devotional study will help members grow, understand and engage in the 5 purposes of church as found in the second chapter of Acts. The purposes are, Community, Worship, Growth, Stewardship and Outreach. This study will take the place of our normal weekly bible study. We encourage all members to attend.Please check back in the upcoming weeks as more details will be made availble.
A copy of the study guide can be found at the link below:
