The Stay-at-Home Order issued by the Governor is in effect until 4/7/20.              

Palm Sunday Services are canceled.


Due to the current situation, Pastor Ellen and the Shepherd of the Lakes Council has decided to temporarily suspend all worship services.

  • Our hope is to be back to our regularly scheduled  worship services for Holy Week if we feel it is safe to do so.

  • If you need to contact Pastor Ellen or the church office during this time, please leave a voicemail as it will be checked periodically, or, send an email to SOTL@shepherdofthelakes.org and we will respond as we are able.

  • Please consider mailing your offering, as we will continue to have expenses even during the closure.

  • Our Facebook page will continue to have daily devotionals and prayers, and the weekly prayer list, activity schedule and announcements as usual.

  • We will still send out the “Flocking to Shepherd of the Lakes” email blast on Thursdays.

  • Please watch our Facebook page, website, and email blasts as we will do our best to share communication with you.

Above all, pray for everyone affected by this virus; the health and recovery of those infected, those dealing with loss of jobs and income, and the workers taking on extra to meet others’ needs during this uncertain time.


Our mission is to invite all people to know Jesus, grow through the power of the Holy Spirit, and go forward to serve all God’s children.
