The familiar picture of our church building will be no more. In a short time the building itself will be no more. Hurricane Harvey damaged our main building beyond the point we could repair it. However, we have our youth building that was not damaged as much.
Through the power of the Holy Spirit each of our members used our gifts with our voices, hands and feet to repair the Youth Building in such a way that we can worship here. This is now our church home. Things will continue to change according to God’s will as we move along this time line. We do not know exactly what God has in store for us but we would like to invite you to join us on the adventure.
We hope you had a very safe Fat Tuesday this year on 13 February 2018.

I'm excited that you are taking some time to visit with us, get to know us a bit, & find out some answers to your questions. Our Shepherd Lutheran Church is going through some changes. We will be updating our website as information is available and the Lord provides.
If you have questions, feel free to contact us. If you would like to visit, or need prayer, let us know we'll be glad to help. We invite you to visit us in person on a Sunday morning as we gather together to worship our Lord & receive His blessings to us in Word and Sacrament.
The story is told of a pastor who went to a European cathedral that had been bombed & almost destroyed in WWII. After decades of work, it was rebuilt & restored. When an American pastor toured the recently reopened sanctuary, he was surprised to see everything restored to its pre-bombing glory – except a statue of Jesus. It stood at the rear doors of the church, but it was missing the lower half of the body, one arm was broken off, & the other hand was missing. The chin & mouth had been shorn from the face by a piece of shrapnel. In short, the statue looked totally out of place. The American pastor asked his counterpart why the statue was not restored & why – of all places – it stood at the rear of the church as the last thing people saw.
The cathedral priest answered simply, “The statue reminds us that we are to serve our neighbor as the hands, feet & voice of Christ. As our people leave here, the statue is a powerful & graphic reminder of their vocational calling as Christians.“
The mission of Our Shepherd Lutheran Church is to serve our neighbor as the voice, hands & feet of Christ. I hope & pray this website – & our congregation – may help serve you as you grow in faith of Christ as our Lord and Savior.
Worship Service on Sunday at 10:45 a.m. (Holy Communion celebrated every Sunday)

We welcome you as you are – we want you to feel comfortable worshiping. There is no dress code. At our traditional service, you will notice that the dress is a little more formal. You will see a number of men dressed in suits & ties, & women dressed in attire similar to “office wear”. However, it is ok dressing more comfortably & less formally - anything from office casual to jeans & sneakers, as do many of our members.
Our Pastor & elders are available to greet you as you exit the sanctuary following services. Join us for a complimentary donut or a cup of coffee in Fellowship Hall before the worship service. You will find lots of people sharing in fellowship in the lobby & our Fellowship Hall. Please take this opportunity to ask any one of our members for more information about OSLC! Information about OSLC & the various opportunities to become involved in are located in the lobby area of the sanctuary.
We welcome & encourage family worship time. Children learn so much from attending worship with their parents—it’s the beginning of a legacy of setting time aside each week for worship.
If you would like to visit, or need prayer, let us know we will be glad to help.
