Study Opportunities


Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church

Sunday School meets each Sunday from Labor Day through the last Sunday in May at 9:00a.m. There are classes for all God's children from nursery through adult. 

Bible Studies are available days and evenings, on various books of the Bible. We have Womenís, Menís, Seniorsí and Youth Bible Study groups that meet at Church at least monthly. The monthly calendar provides dates and times. 

A pre-confirmation program of instruction for fifth and sixth graders provides an overview of salvation history from the creation to the final day. The emphasis is on seeing how God was at work through the centuries speaking to his people in many and various ways, always preparing to fulfill his promises through his Son Jesus, the promised Messiah, and then through apostles and evangelists making the Gospel known to the ends of the earth. This class is taught weekly from September through Pentecost.

Our seventh and eighth grade students join pastor for confirmation instruction. Through study of the Holy Scriptures and Dr. Lutherís Small Catechism young people are instructed in the fundamental doctrines of Christianity. The aim of the course is to prepare the students for a lifetime of receiving Godís grace through word and sacrament that they might grow in faith and be preserved as Godís dear children until he calls them home. This class is taught from September through Pentecost.

An Adult Information Class is offered by pastor for those who wish to learn or review the basic teachings of Scripture as they are understood by the Evangelical Lutheran Church. This class serves as preparation for membership for adults who wish to join the congregation. Please contact pastor for more information.
