Pastor’s Greeting

Shalom! It is my joy and privilege to share with every person that they have been welcomed into the family and reign of God through trusting in what Jesus Christ has accomplished with his life, death, and victory on the Cross. You are loved and belong because of what Jesus did for you!

I am a graduate of the Cross-Cultural Ministry Center at Concordia University Irvine where I obtained my Masters of Theology. I am married to a feisty woman and have three, equally feisty, children. I am an avid cyclist, board game player, and enjoy backpacking, hiking, woodworking, and brewing.

Sunday School & Events

Currently, our face-to-face Bible Studies are canceled until further notice. You are invited to join us online for two different Bible Study opportunities each week.

Sunday Bible Study – 10:00 a.m. – begins with Confession and Absolution followed by prayer. We then delve into our Bible Study topic for the day.

Tuesday mornings – 9:00 a.m. – The Bible Project – a study of lectionary readings for the upcoming Sunday. 

If you are interested in participating, please contact the church office ( and ask to be added to the distribution list.


Once we return to gathering in person, our MultiGen+ Bible Study meets on Sundays from 10:30-11:30 a.m. following our morning worship. All ages join together for our Bible Study in the main Fellowship Hall to explore, learn and discuss the current study. Our current study is “Old Testament prophecies about Jesus the Messiah.” We are joining with Light of Christ Anglican community for this study. Pr. Eric Bohlmann and Father Scott will jointly lead our discussion.

Changing times for Shepherd of the Valley means OPPORTUNITY for YOU!
While uncertain and change are always part of human life, ultimately the future is not uncertain.
While we all like to “go our own way,” and want to feel like we can do life “our way,” and are in control, we may forget that we are vulnerable and fragile, and that we do often get ourselves lost in the thorny thickets of life’s struggles and difficulties.
Christ is risen. He is risen indeed. Alleluia! These words begin and end our worship on each of the seven Sundays of Easter as an affirmation of the fact that Easter is not a day, it is a seven week long season that celebrates the resurrection of our Lord.
