We are glad you are here ...
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, straight, LGBTQ, filthy rich, black and proud, law enforcement, y no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are newborns, 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 your niece’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, active military, veterans, 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 she 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!
We are a Lutheran Community centered around Word and Sacrament seeking to provide hope, acceptance, and love for ALL God’s people through caring and nurturing, worshiping and learning.
Together we share God’s grace with ALL through caring, nurturing, worshiping, and learning.
Reconciling in Christ
YOU ARE NOT ALONE. ALL ARE WELCOME.
Supporters of LGBTQIA+ people and families are not the minority in our Lutheran church, but are the growing majority.
Over 750 Lutheran Faith communities especially welcome LGBTQIA+ people with their identity as Reconciling in Christ (RIC) and we at Shepherd of the Valley are one of them!
