A Congregation at Prayer: An At-Home Devotion Guide



This guide will encourage you each day to use your Bible, Luther's Catechism and a Hymnal. It's our hope that this guide will help you to establish a daily routine of prayer, reading and applying God's Word, and also worshiping the Father, Son and Holy Spirit for all of their gifts of grace to you. "Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts." Colossians 3:15-16

Message for Your Week from Pastor K



Video introduction to Shepherd of the Valley


We are…

Christ preaching!

We preach Jesus Christ, our crucified and risen Lord, the only Savior for all the people of the world. Everyone needs the Savior, for all people have sinned against God and only deserve His anger and punishment.

Bible believing!

We believe that the Bible is in every word, God’s Word, completely true and the only source and authority for Christian faith and life.

People serving!

We want what God wants, that “all people be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth.” We want to share with you and everyone the message of God’s love in Jesus Christ.

Where do we stand?
