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.

SUNDAY SCHOOL RALLY DAY will take place on Sunday, September 8.  Elected officers in the congregation and Sunday School teachers will be installed during the 8:15 and 10:45 service.  There will be class sessions for students from age 3 through adult at 9:30 each Sunday.  There will also be a class for youth in Grade 8-12.
