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.
AT SHEPHERD OF THE VALLEY LUTHERAN CHURCH we celebrate the Lord’s Supper in the confidence that we receive, along with the bread and wine, our Savior’s true body and blood “through and in which we obtain the forgiveness of sins.” Besides individually receiving Christ’s free gift of forgiveness in this sacrament, all those who commune make a confession of the faith that we believe and teach in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. To commune at this altar is to accept the doctrinal position of this congregation. Because of that common confession, we invite those who are members at sister Missouri Synod Churches to join us at the Lord’s Table. If you would like more information on our understanding of the Lord’s Supper, please visit with Pastor Wolfgram.
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.
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 September 13! Sign up forms for Sunday School are in the narthex. Elected leaders and Sunday School staff will be installed as part of services on September 13. 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 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. eptember 18-19 are the dates for Fall Men’s Retreat.
