KICK Time Bible Study – twice monthly
KICK Time is a Bible study class for children in grades 1-5 and meets after the 2nd worship service at the same time
as the Youth Ministry meets.
This year’s theme: GOD FULFILLS HIS PROMISES THROUGH JESUS. Classes will begin on Sunday, August 4, after the second worship service, with a lesson on the Ministry and Miracles of Jesus.
The lessons for the remaining Sundays are:
- Prophecies of the Old Testament Fulfilled by Jesus
- Annunciation of the Birth of John the Baptist
- Annunciation of the Birth of Jesus
We will again use a variety of presentation types – PowerPoint, historian, videos, projects, etc. – to keep the children engaged in the lessons. The children receive lunch and after the lessons, hey are invited to participate in the youth activities for that day until 1:30 PM when parents need pick up their child or children.
More information and registration available here.

2019 LCMS National Youth Gathering
This year’s LCMS National Youth Gathering took place in Minneapolis, Minnesota during July. Youth from Shepherd of the Hills and their leaders, along with over 21,000 of their closest friends, learned about the one, true, Real. Present. God. Focus centered on the Psalms and connecting to God through His holy word. Sightseeing, public transit travel, interactive center fun, servant projects, and mass events combined to create a week of bonding with friends in the faith and walking in the Word.
Thanks to all who contributed to making this journey in our Christian lives possible.
Thank you for participating in the Chili Cookoff!
1st place winner – Salli Lemke; 2nd place Michelle Pleinis; 3rd place George Walter
Congratulations to all our winners and to all who made their special chili for us to try. Everyone enjoyed tasting the 10 varieties of chili. Almost 40 attended and had a blast with the food and fellowship while raising money for the kids trip to the Youth Gathering in Minneapolis this summer. A big thank you to those who provided the chili and condiments and to those who set up and cleaned up. A great event!! The Chili Cookoff took place on March 15, 2019 in the Gathering Place.
——–Chili Cookoff on March 15————–
Our Youth Ministry will be hosting a Chili Cookoff on March 15 from 4 to 6 PM as they continue to raise funds to be able to go to the Synodical Youth Gathering in Minneapolis, MN, this summer. Please pray for them and give them as much support and financial assistance as you are able.
Beginning in March the youth will be having a Bible study during their Sunday meeting time. The study is based on the Scripture readings that were read in the Sunday worship service.
Beginning in April, K.I.C.K. Time (Sunday School) will be moving to 11:45 AM after the second worship service to coincide with our Youth Ministry.
Our youth are thankful to the members of Shepherd of the Hills congregation for the support they have received on their life’s journey and helping them grow in Christ. They continue to raise funds for attending the Synodical Youth Gathering in Minneapolis, MN next July. This inspirational event is a very special way for them to grow in their Christian life. Thank you to everyone who has supported them in their efforts to date. Please pray for them and give them as much support and financial assistance as you are able.
Five young people are now studying the six chief parts of Dr. Martn Luther’s catechism. They meet during the Sunday morning Bible study hour and discuss how we can grow in our relationship with God and respond to His love shown to us through His Son’s life, death, and resurrection as we look forward to His second coming. They will continue in these studies through May, 2020.
