This Week at Shepherd of the Hills


A Great Big Thank YOU!
Thank you to everyone who helped make our 4th of July Cookout happen. The food was delicious, the fellowship was wonderful, guests were made welcome, and lot of fun was had by all!

5th Sunday Covered Dish Lunch
Mark your calendars for the last Sunday of July. It’s a 5th Sunday so we will gather in the Fellowship Hall after worship for a covered dish lunch! We will also have a very brief congregational meeting between worship and lunch to elect a person to finish out Bonnie Steckelberg’s term on council. The nominee is Carol Coone. We will also accept nominations from the floor.

O Living Breath Of God
O living Breath of God, wind at the beginning upon the waters;
O living Breath of God, bearing the creation to wondrous birth;
Come now, and fill our spirits; pour out your gifts abundant.
O living Breath of God, Holy Spirit, breathe in us as we pray.
