We are here to serve you
A lot of people help with the day to day operations of our church. Christina runs our office and keeps everything running smoothly. You will find her in the office Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 am till 12:30 pm.
Many volunteers appear on our campus throughout the day to assist in a variety of ways.
Our choir, which performs at our 10:30 am worship service, is under the direction of Theresa. We are always looking for individuals who would like to share the gift of song during worship.
If you know how to use a hammer and can count to four, Diana, our handbell choir director, is ready to help you make beautiful music through the playing of handbells.
Maybe you want to be a part of worship, but are a little shy. Our puppet ministry is the place for you. Anthony, our puppet master, will introduce you to the world of puppets. This merry band of puppeteers only perform on the 5th Sunday of months that are applicable.
Meet our Pastor
Welcome to Shepherd of the Valley United Methodist Church!
We invite you to experience the presence of God's spirit renewing your life as faith grows in your heart, soul, and mind. As a community of faith, we have found that faith is not a simple recipe or prescription for belief, but an invitation to a loving relationship with a living God who transforms our life. Faith for us is the journey of discovering who we are as God’s people, and how God calls us to grow in our spiritual life and our service to the world around us. Wherever you may find yourself on your spiritual journey, we invite you to find a spiritual home with us.
Please come and visit our community of faith at Shepherd of the Valley UMC. In all that we do, we want to be a faith-forming community. In other words, whether you join us for worship, a class, a mission project, or a social gathering, we want you to experience God in a way that deepens your faith. In this way, our spiritual life
matures and deepens through our worship, our learning, our searching, our service and our questions.
We are a church engaged in many exciting ministries of service and outreach. We minister to many people here in the community, and service to our neighbor is an important part of our life together. Check out the weekly activities to find some way you can be a part of them also. In all of these things, we find that our hearts are warmed, and our commitment to God and neighbor grows stronger.
I look forward to speaking with you about how we can grow together to know the fullness of God in your life. Our church is committed in helping you grow in your faith, building healthy relationships and making an impact in our world by serving God. Jesus said, “I have come that you might have abundant life.” We want to share with you
the abundance of God’s love and the gift of faith. We would be pleased to have you with us and hope you will visit our congregation soon.
In Christ’s love,
Pastor Deborah Schauer
