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.

WE WELCOME Tamara Ulland, Business Manager for ND LC-MS and LCEF Vice President as she shares information regarding the Lutheran Church Extension Fund as well as happenings across our District. Be sure to say “hello” to Tami. She will also present during the education hour as Pastor Wolfgram meets with the Sunday School team.

NEWSLETTER AND CALENDAR information is due to the church office by Tuesday, October 22 at 12:00pm. Please email to shepvalley@gmail.com

THE FEAST OF ALL SAINTS will take place on November 3.   In an effort to remember our loved ones who have died in the Lord, you may order and purchase a rose to celebrate their new and eternal life in Christ. The cost is $3.50 for each red long-stemmed rose that is purchased. During services on November 3, we will pause to remember and celebrate these loved ones with a parade of roses, honoring each person, one at a time. Please complete an order form and return it by October 28.

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.
