Our mission and our values are at the core of everything we do at Shepherd of the Lake Lutheran Church. They serve as a compass, helping shape our personal lives and the life of our faith community.

We offer a variety of worship options - in-person, live-stream, or call-in services. There is no prerequisite for attending any of our worship services or events. 

We want everyone to feel comfortable and be themselves when they come to worship. Learn about the flow of a service, our different options for seating, communion, Sunday School, and more.

Life Groups are a great way to grow in your relationship with God, with yourself, and with other people who are in the same stage of life

We are blessed with an incredible community to carry out our mission! We invite you to serve with us, whether at Shepherd of the Lake, with us out in the community, or around the world.

From birth through 12th grade, we have various programs for children and youth, including Sunday School, Communion 101, Shepherd's Flock Preschool, Living Water Ministry for Middle Schoolers, Affirmation of Baptism, and our High School Ministry

Music is a very big part of our community and is beautifully woven throughout almost every ministry we offer. We offer a variety of ways to participate in music, no matter the level of experience, whether it's singing in a choir, ringing the bells, rocking out with the band, or taking music lessons. 

We are an active community with many events for everyone to attend. No need to be a member. From yoga classes to holiday celebrations to bible studies, we have something for everyone.
