Worship services at Shepherd of the Hills are times for the community of faith to join in praise of God, to renew our faith through Word and Sacrament, and to go out into the world ready to be the Good News.
How do we do that?
Worship takes a variety of form and tone. A constant of worship at SOTH is that we celebrate both Word and Sacrament at all our worship meetings. That said, here are some brief descriptions:
The Family Worship Service is celebrated at 9 a.m. The service combines Lutheran liturgical elements with music – both traditional hymns and new praise songs – and language that honors who we are today. This service is designed for families to participate fully in the work of God’s people. There is space for those new to Christianity and Lutheranism and those who are well versed in Christianity and Lutheranism to examine their faith anew.
During the 9 a.m. worship service, children are invited to the chancel to meet with Pastor Jack and to talk about the daily lesson using stories, skits, and visual means. Parents are encouraged to bring their infants and children along with the Sunday School aged children.
