A Note To Visitors
Welcome to Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church
We are glad
you are here! We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, black and proud,
y no habla ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are new-borns, poor as dirt, skinny as a rail, got a hitch
in their git-along, or just plain can't sing. You're welcome here if you're "just browsing," just
woke up, or just got out of jail. We don't care if you're more Lutheran than Luther, or more Catholic than
the pope, or haven't been to church since little Maria's confirmation. We extend a special welcome to those who are
over 40 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving
artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters, and people who stay up too late at night. If you're
having problems, or you're down in the dumps, or you don't like "organized religion," we've been there,
too. We offer a special welcome to those who could lose a few pounds, think the earth is flat, work too hard, can't spell,
or came because grandma's in town and wanted to go to church. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a
prayer right now, are three-times divorced, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or got lost in traffic and
wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts... and you!
