In order to keep a church running, it takes a whole congregation! Also, we have a few people on the church's payroll who help keep the wheels turning.
Rev. Scott Anderson
Rev. Scott Anderson is our new pastor! We will have a bio and a photo here soon! His first official day as our pastor is August 1, though he is currently leading our worship services.
Mary Drotleff became the secretary at Shepherd of the Valley in early 2018. She was born into the Lutheran faith, and worshiped in a very small Lutheran church, North Industry Lutheran Church. That church became the current Peace Lutheran in Canton, Ohio. She is married with a son and daughter-in-law, three grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She works with our outreach ministry, Shepherd’s Kitchen, cooking meals that we provide to our shut-ins and the local community. She enjoys watching home improvement shows with her better half, Fred, and applying what they learn to projects around their home. They share their home with their feline daughter, Lucy Mae.
Susan Kaschak has enjoyed being a part of worship and music at SOTV ever since becoming a member in October 2009. She formed the Adult Choir in November 2009 and is proud to serve as the Choir Director. In January 2010 she assumed the role as Chairperson of the Worship and Music Committee. Susan serves as the musician for our worship services. She also enjoys being a part of Shepherd's Kitchen, which prepares and delivers meals to local shut-ins, and the Quilting Group that sews and sends quilts to people around the world through Lutheran World Relief.
