WORSHIP

The worship committee consists of the Pastor, music director, organist, council liaison and several members from the congregation at large. With guidance from Pastor, the committee oversees all aspects of the worship service including music, settings, service format, sanctuary arrangement and all other aspects of the worship service. The committee also oversees scheduling of worship assistants, communion setup, changing of the paraments and seasonal church decorations. They meet generally on the second Sunday of the month after the second service.

Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran has three premiere ensembles.  The Contemporary ensemble is a group of singers and instrumentalists that focus on the more modern Christian music.  The Hand Bell Choir is a traditional instrumental ensemble that teaches the basics of musicianship (reading, counting, etc.) through practice.  The Sanctuary Choir is an ensemble focused on high school and collegiate choral repertoire. 

We welcome all individuals at any musical levels into every ensemble.  Any inquires can be sent to Corey Griffin, Director of Musical Activities, at cgriffi8@uab.edu or 205-514-0394, or simply show up to any and all rehearsals that interest you during the on seasons of August-May (summer common time is a break time for must ensembles).  the Contemporary group meets Thursdays at 6:15pm, Hand Bells Tuesdays at 7:00pm, and Choir on Wednesdays at 7:00pm

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “stewardship?” Budgets and spreadsheets? Money? Pledge cards? What about love? Stewardship is about so much more than money – stewardship is about love.

The definition for Stewardship: the responsible overseeing and protection of something considered worth caring for and preserving. It is all about love and caring.

For this reason, we are undertaking a year round stewardship program, “Stewards of God’s love.” This program will teach us how to make stewardship an integral part of our congregation’s life. It will also teach us how to make the best use of our time, talents and treasures for not only our congregation’s benefit but our community’s as well.

The Fellowship Committee’s main responsibility is coordinating activities that engage the congregation in fellowship at Shepherd of the Hills.  For the most part, this means planning the various meals that are provided in the Fellowship Hall.  For example,  the committee coordinates the annual Epiphany Celebration, Ladies Luncheon, Easter Breakfast, Rally Day, and various special celebrations throughout the year.
