Welcome to SVLC!


Are you interested in a grace filled, hymn singing, joy filled group of people who gather to praise God and celebrate God’s love?  If you answer yes to any of the above, then it would be a great idea for you to come and visit Shades Valley Lutheran Church.


As part of the historic church – a group of believers that spreads backward for two thousand years and more and reaches forward into God’s future – we are here to celebrate God’s special Meal, (sometimes called Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper) to sing God’s praises, and to share our joy with the world.


Jesus tells his followers that they are to love God and to love their neighbor and SVLC (Shades Valley Lutheran Church) does all that it can to be obedient to Jesus’ command.  We love God through sharing his love-message with our children, with each other and with all those who will listen; we love our neighbor in practical ways – supporting the work of local missions and ministries, providing tangible help for our poor and other-abled brothers and sisters and generally doing our best to provide a safe and secure atmosphere for those who want to know God more.


If you are seeking connection with other people who love God and work to love neighbor; if you are looking for a place where all are welcome and none are turned away; if you want a stronger, more loving relationship with Jesus, with the Father and with the Holy Spirit; if you have lost your way and want to find The Way – please make it a point to visit SVLC.  You will find here a group of people who are not perfect, but who work every day to show God’s great love for God’s great world in all that they do and are.


Join us. Our various opportunities for worship and fellowship are illustrated in the web site.  We will be more than pleased to have you come here and share God’s love and grace and mercy with us all.

Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them. ~Matthew 18:20

At Shades Valley Lutheran Church, we want to make it easy for you to connect with God and with others. We strive to connect our faith and life through living in community, worshiping God, and reaching into the world! We can do amazing things when we work together in Jesus’ name.

Love God with all your heart and soul and might and love your neighbor as yourself. ~Matthew 22:36-37

During all times we can lift each other up; reaching out to neighbors near and far while making a difference in the world.
At SVLC, we offer many opportunities to connect as we explore our faith and ask questions together.
