Welcome to Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church of Phoenix, Arizona. I am so glad you visited this site. If you are new, that is exciting. I am relatively new, too. I arrived here in August of 2015. You should know that you have been in my prayers. In advance, I have prayed for every single person who would view this web page. My continued prayers are for the many diverse people who will experience the presence of Jesus through this faith community. Together we will seek to be Jesus in the midst of the city of Phoenix. We strive to recognize and nurture Jesus in ourselves and each person whom we encounter along the way. Please accept this as an invitation to come worship on Saturday or Sunday to experience for yourself the presence of Jesus in our midst. Click Here to learn more about the worship styles and times. When you do come, let's meet. I would love to say, "Welcome to your new faith home". Until then, know that Jesus is with you each and every single day. It does not matter who you are, what you have done, what your background is, if you are religious or not- You are loved by God.

Interested in Growing in Faith?
Shepherd of the Valley is a great place to be on Wednesday evenings. We are a community made up of many generations. If you are looking to connect with people, Wednesdays at Shepherd of the Valley will give you a special place to achieve that goal. Read this if you are looking to grow your family in faith and life.
Be sure to check out the Discipleship/Worship Service called the UNDERGROUND on Wednesdays @ 5:45 pm in Burns Hall (music starts @ 5:30 pm)!The early church had to go underground where they found support. This new worship experience will embrace a variety of music, crowd participation and conversation, a diversity of arts, and be flexible in style. The purpose is to invite the Holy Spirit to build us into an authentic church, similar to the early New Testament community. This is a family friendly experience that embraces creativity with the leadership of a great house band.
The teachings/topics will be different than Sunday worship and will focus on discipleship teaching. Who should come? Anybody interested in a mid-week time of spiritual growth in faith, anyone that is going to be away for the weekend, and all children, youth and Confirmation students.
