Welcome to Shades Valley Evangelical Lutheran Church

"Current Status"

Shades Valley Evangelical Lutheran Church (SVLC) is a community of faith striving to grow in grace and serve the world around us.  Given the COVID-19 pandemic and after considering the recommendations of the CDC, our ELCA Presiding Bishop, and our ELCA-Southeastern Synod Bishop & Council, and out of a desire to demonstrate love for the sake of the world, the SVLC Council has elected for the congregation to continue practicing physical distancing. For now, the SVLC building will remain closed to in-person worship and ministries. 

Needless to say, we will continue to monitor the latest recommendations and prepare the building for our eventual return.

Until then, we will continue to be socially accessible to one another via online gatherings.  Sign up for our e-news, go to our calendar page, and check us out on social media for upcoming opportunities to gather with us online. And, most importantly, even, or most, especially during this pandemic, let us be the church for the sake of the world. 


We thank you for visiting with us here and we hope you'll join us online soon. Should you have any questions about who we are as a community of faith, please feel free to contact us.
