The Harvey flooding has forced us, like many in our community, to change the way we do things.
Our heartfelt thanks go out to Crawfish Kings for letting us use their facility for worship services on Sunday mornings. 17 September thru 08 October 2017.
Beginning 15 October 2017 we will meet at the Indian Shores Clubhouse until further notice. The closest address is 20723 Appaloosa Trail Crosby, TX
From FM 2100 turn onto Indian Shores Road. It will turn to the right and become Appaloosa Trail. Continue down the road toward the Community Center. Enter the parking area and you will find the Clubhouse on the left. If you don't see a boat ramp you are in the wrong place.
Sunday School at 9:30
Worship Service will begin at 10:45
Wednesday morning bible study will be at a location that is announced at worship services
Any correspondence should be sent to:

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)
Sunday School on Sunday at 9:30 a.m.
Bible Study on Wednesday 10:00 a.m.
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.
