Updated: August 01, 2021

 SUNDAY WORSHIP  We are indoors.   We have returned the sanctuary to its normal configuration and to our pre-covid service.

Communion is celebrated every Sunday. If you have never celebrated this with us, we invite you to speak with the pastor before communing.  We welcome those who are baptized, who are repentant, and who believe that Christ is truly present in the bread and wine. Young children and those seeking a blessing instead are welcome to come forward, arms crossed. We use wine, but we have some white grape juice also available for those who should avoid wine.  We practice “First Communion” for children 10 and/or in the fifth grade with special classes of preparation.

 For those who can’t make it in person, the service will be streamed live on our Facebook page and slightly delayed on our website.  If you have any questions about our worship service email the church at svlcoceanside@gmail.com    

For those away or who need to remain in strict isolation, the service will be streamed live on our Facebook page and slightly delayed on our website.

If you regard it better for you to continue isolating at home, that is fully respected and we hope you will join us live online.

    

Fellowship Returns!   Shepherd of the Valley is a friendly church!  We embrace each other and LOVE to talk with each other!  It’s a good thing… and we greatly encourage it.   Of course, we are also in this pandemic and so need to enjoy this time SAFELY.   Goodies will return this Sunday and sign-ups will be out for future weeks.  Some things to keep in mind:
+  Think outdoor dining!
+  DO talk!
+  Please practice social distancing with those you do not live with – at least 6 feet.  Spread out.
+  Please do NOT hang around the fellowship counter where the food is; receive your goodie and then please step away.
Our hosts will provide goodies in such a way that no one will be touching food that others will consume.
Ministry Meeting:  Meets the first Thursday of each month via zoom (June 3).  If you have any desire to observe this meeting you are more than welcome to join in.  Contact Bruce at (svloceanside@gmail.com) if you wish to be sent the link.
