At Shepherd of the Hill, we hold several special worship services in addition to our Sunday morning worship. Please see the website calendar for specific dates.
Ash Wednesday Service
Soup Supper - 6:00 pm / Worship Service - 7:00 pm
Come join us for a simple supper of soup and bread followed by worship. The dinner is provided in the fellowship hall. All ages are welcome and encouraged to come. The worship service will be for an hour in the sanctuary.
The worship of Ash Wednesday will be a time of contemplation and meditation through music, silence and scripture. We conclude worship with the mark of ashes on the forehead.
Maundy Thursday gets its name from the Latin mandatum, which means “commandment.” Maundy Thursday is the time we celebrate Jesus giving people the new commandment that we love one another as he has loved us.
On the night before Christmas, we offer two services of worship.
Family Service with A Story for Christmas at 7:00 p.m.
The family service will be designed for those young at heart who enjoy lots of advent carols and a good story for the season. The conclusion of the service includes the lighting of our candles.
A Communion Service of Lessons and Carols at 11:00 p.m.
This is a service of meditation using various advent lessons from scripture and select carols. The service concludes moments before Christmas Day with the celebration of God’s love in communion with candle light.
