NO  WOW Program Fall 2019
We wanted to let you know that unfortunately at this time we will not be holding our WOW program, as we are short volunteers.
 
Your children and family remain important to us at Shepherd of the Hills. We will be holding other special programs throughout the year, summer camps for kids and continue with Jr. and Sr. High on Sundays.
 
In the meantime, if we can help direct or provide you information in assisting you and your children in their faith walk, please email Julia@sothaz.com. We have many resources available.
 
Questions or comments, please email julia@sothaz.com. Blessings.

Baptism 
We believe that the Bible teaches that a person is saved by God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us that such “faith comes by hearing” (Rom. 10:17). Jesus Himself commands Baptism and tells us that Baptism is water used together with the Word of God (Matt. 28:19-20). Because of this, we believe that Baptism is one of the miraculous means of grace (another is God’s Word as it is written or spoken), through which God creates and/or strengthens the gift of faith in a person’s heart. By water and the Holy Spirit we are made members of the Church which is the body of Christ. As we live with him and with his people, we grow in faith, love and obedience to the will of God. If you have not been baptized and would like to or want more information, please contact Julia@sothaz.com
