Preparation for Sunday Service

For Sunday the 9th of October, 2022

As we gather for worship this Sunday the readings all revolve around faithfulness.  In the epistle St. Paul urges Timothy to be dedicated and faithful in his work in the Lord even when such faithfulness requires enduring hardship.  The Old Testament lesson includes Ruth’s inspiring promise to accompany Naomi and, forsaking all others, to be faithful to her in life and death.  Such steadfast love and faithfulness reflects and is empowered by the Lord’s constant grace and mercy toward those who trust in him.  Jesus commends the Samaritan leper for his faithful response of thanks for healing and speaks a gracious blessing to him.  God grant us to respond to his love with faithfulness.


Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church is located 10 miles north of Bowling Green via Route 25.


We are 3 miles from Perrysburg via Route 25.
