Following Jesus’ footsteps, we seek God’s presence and guidance in prayer. Your participation is most welcome and vital! Come as you are and as often as you can. We meet on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. in Sweet Chapel.
Our purpose is to raise our thanks to God in prayers for our church, our pastors, our Christian Education program, and all ministries. We believe and pray with the authority of the Scripture. We invite the presence of the Holy Spirit to be with us.

With our new lights, volunteers are needed to assist in operating the lights for worship and special events. This

Help others hear and experience the Good News by joining the sound ministry team. Learn to set up and operate the sound equipment in the Sanctuary and Charter Hall. Training on operating the sound mixing board is provided. We have specific needs for additional volunteers to help with the worship service sound.
Additionally, we need volunteers to participate in the sound recording project. These volunteers will operate the recording equipment, and produce and label CDs of the worship services and other events. The CDs are available to members and a copy is available in the Library.

Be part of the welcome ministry at Shepherd of the Hills. This is a great way to become acquainted with other members of the usher team as well as others in our congregation as you welcome them into the worship service.
A six-month schedule of usher rotation is mailed to ministry team members. We’re always looking for additional team members so no one individual is asked to serve more that four or five times a year. You can serve on a regular rotation or as a substitute.
