Welcome to Shepherd of the Hills where the WORD of truth is spoken.
Shepherd of the Hills is a liturgical church, in which the Word of God is delivered through hymns, an Old Testament Lesson, an Epistle Lesson (taking from the New Testament), Gospel Lesson and sermon. In addition, confession, creeds, a children’s message, prayers and responsive songs and text are integral parts to the service. If you’re unfamiliar with this style of worship, the service is projected at the front of the church, or you can follow along with the order of service which appears in our hymnal.
Masks are not required though we respect those who choose to wear them. If you haven’t worshipped recently, some practices that were set aside during Covid have returned:
When You Enter
Ushers will greet you at the entryway into the sanctuary. You will receive a worship bulletin (which includes the order of service, contact information and announcements), and answer any questions you may have. The service will begin with a hymn and worshipers are asked to stand as the cross is brought down the aisle.
There are no fashion police here though we do ask that you dress in a manner that is respectful and appropriate for worship. We’re simply happy to have you worship with us.
If you have small children, there is a small cry room located in the back, northeast corner of the sanctuary. It is equipped with speakers, so you can still hear the service.
Large-print bulletins are available from the ushers.
A hearing Loop is installed for the hearing impaired. We also provide an interpreter for the deaf on Sunday mornings at 8:00 am when Communion is served.
Coffee and Snacks
Coffee and snacks are served following the Sunday, 8:00 am worship service. Join us in the Fellowship Hall for conversation and a treat; stay for Bible study (for all ages).
Our Narthex is equipped to provide a space for - and to serve - the variety of ministries that are active in our church. Stop by The Welcome and Opportunity Center for information on upcoming activities, drop off donation items or enjoy a cup of coffee while browsing the library.
If you have any questions, our ushers and elders are eager to help.
