Preparation for Sunday Service

For Sunday the 26th of March, 2023 (Fifth Sunday in Lent)

As we gather for worship on the fifth Sunday in Lent, the week of Jesus’ passion is right around the corner.  The close of today’s Gospel reading reveals that clearly, recording that the plotting had begun.  The lesson also reveals Jesus dominion over death and the grave.  Life is the theme which runs through all the readings—life in all its fullness, life replacing death, life as the result of God’s gracious exercise of His almighty power.  He raises from death.  He revives dry bones.  He restores hope.  He adopts sinners as His children, making them heirs and inheritors of His glory.  All who trust in Him receive these blessings and more, so He calls us to believe and await His deliverance in hope.


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.
