Come Worship With Us

Whether you feel like celebrating the beauty of God’s work or you feel as if you need to take time to reflect and find strength, worship is the perfect place for this.  Each week, we hold a Sunday worship service at 9:30 AM.  In addition, we come together on special occasions to celebrate Jesus. The Shepherd of the Valley worship environment offers a blended-format worship service based on both traditional and contemporary worship formats in our church's ADA-compliant, handicap-accessible building. We would like to welcome everyone to join us for worship Sundays at 9:30 AM!

(Speaking of an accessible service, did we mention we have an outreach program that shares our weekly sermon and Bible readings with our congregation's shut-ins?)

As we observe in-person worship in this time of uncertainty, as brothers and sisters in Christ, it is our duty to protect one another.

In that spirit, our church will be observing social distancing measures, wearing masks, and implementing other health and safety measures.  To read more about these, please click here.

Bishop Allende of the Northeastern Ohio Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America reminds us that to worship is a means of grace, not an obligation.  If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or you feel unsafe coming to a public gathering even with safety measures in place, we ask that you hold off coming to in-person worship until you feel better or safer, but rather we invite you to join us on our church's weekly podcast, the Shepherdcast.  You can listen to it below or wherever you get your podcasts.

Buy Altar Flowers

Altar flower envelopes are available for you to take on the Information Table at the church. Arrangements are priced at $25 as usual, but we are now partnered with Lilyfield Lane in Canton South. Please remember to return your green bowl back to the church after you are done with your arrangement.
