PAstoral Care

Pastoral Care at Shepherd of the Hills

One of the many benefits of being a part of a church family is that you have support during some of the most challenging times in your life and a bunch of cheerleaders during the most joyous moments. We don't always know when you need support, so please never be shy about letting us know when you do.
Your church is here for you--to pray for you, care for you, and walk alongside you during times of sickness, sadness, and loss.  We're also here to celebrate with you during times of triumph, wondrous milestones, joyous life events, and more. Scroll through all our different pastoral care offerings.
