WELCOME!!  We are glad that you have joined us this morning as we lift up our hearts and voices in response to God’s great gift of forgiveness and life in Christ Jesus.  If you are a visitor, please sign our guest book and introduce yourself to Pastor Les Wolfgram and Pastor Justin Woodside.


THE HUMAN CARE COMMITTEE has selected North Dakota District LC-MS 1-1-1 effort as the recipient for the third quarter.   This includes support for Pastor Dan Suelzle at Wittenberg Chapel on the campus at UND. 


PLANS ARE COMING TOGETHER for the 12’ X 16’ storage shed that will be built by Grayson Lawyer as his Eagle Scout project.  Donations to this effort are greatly appreciated.  Check out the flags and paint outline at the end of the sidewalk on the east end of the parking lot.


SEPTEMBER 29 Middle School students at Bethel and Shepherd of the Valley in grades 6-8 are invited to a Pizza and Bible Study get together on Tuesday, September 29 from 6:00 to 8:00.  Pizza and games will be provided as well as an in depth study of the Scriptures with Pastor Woodside.  RSVP with Pastor Woodside.


OCTOBER 11 High School students at Bethel and Shepherd of the Valley are invited to a Pizza and Bible Study get together on Sunday, October 11. We will meet at Shepherd of the Valley at 12:30.  Pizza and games will be provided as well as an in depth study of the Scriptures with Pastor Woodside.  RSVP with Pastor Woodside.


SHARED PASTOR PLAN…  Pastor Woodside will serve Bethel and Shepherd of the Valley on Sunday mornings by rotating between the two congregations on a monthly basis.  He will be at Shepherd of the Valley during the months of September and November in 2020.  This will bring consistency and provide all of us the opportunity to get to know one another better.  It will also give Pastor Woodside and Pastor Wolfgram the opportunity to lead Bible studies that are at least four sessions in length. 


SUNDAY SCHOOL RALLY DAY is today!   Sign up forms for Sunday School are in the narthex.  Elected leaders and Sunday School staff will be installed as part of services this morning.  The Board of Education and Sunday School staff are working on a virtual option for Sunday School as well.  Contact Michelle Dever or Pastor Woodside if you have questions or concerns.


SHEPHERD’S HILL AT THE CROSSROADS is hosting several retreats this fall.  They include a ND LCMS-U Retreat for college students across the state of North Dakota on Labor Day weekend, September 5-7.  Pastor Dan Suelzle, campus pastor at Wittenberg Chapel at UND will lead the retreat. September 18-19 are the dates for Fall Men’s Retreat.  Pastor Wolfgram will lead this retreat focused on ways in which Law Enforcement agencies interact with the public are supported by the Christian.  There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex for this retreat.  $85.00 registration fee includes three meals and sleeping accommodations.
