Shepherd Welcomes Everyone

Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church was established in 1972 as a member congregation of the Rocky Mountain Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.


We believe that God’s grace is a gift freely given and that Jesus Christ gave his life for our salvation. Everyone is welcome to worship regardless of religious affiliation, baptismal status, race, age, gender or sexual orientation. All are welcome to the Lord’s table. We provide the environment to engage in spiritual conversation with God and others in our community.


Celebrate the Good News with us through prayer, song and the sacrament of Jesus Christ. You will be welcomed with open hearts and your spiritual gifts will be valued. Children are important to our congregational life together and included in worship and communion. We reach out to our community, our nation, and our world through unceasing prayer and action.

Our Mission
