Where to Park

When you enter the parking lot off Lafayette Blvd, the Sanctuary is the first building on your left. There is more parking available on the north and west sides of our campus. Parking spots marked "Handicapped" are set aside for anyone with mobility issues.

Greeters, Ushers and Welcome Hosts

Standing by the doors to the Sanctuary, you’ll find greeters saying hello.  They are ready also to direct you to other parts of the campus or to answer any questions you may have. The greeters will offer you a program which will guide you through the service. The insert usually lists upcoming events and announcements. If you have small children, there are activity sheets, age appropriate for them as well. Ushers will assist you in finding a place to sit in the sanctuary. Hearing devices are available, just check with a Greeter.

Nursery/Toddler Care Center

If you have infants and toddlers, our Nursery/Toddler Care Center is staffed with loving responsible adults. We’re committed to providing a safe, nurturing place for infants and toddlers to receive care while their parents/guardians attend worship and classes. Please speak with a greeter who will direct you to the nursery which is just west of the sanctuary in the Christian education/Preschool building.

Sundays: Opens fifteen minutes before worship services and other events and meetings by advance request.

Ages: Newborns to 5 years.

Location: Building directly west of the sanctuary, down the sidewalk to the purple door on the southern most portion of the building marked “Nursery”. This is also the sidewalk to the west parking area.

Where to Sit

Feel free to sit anywhere you like. You’ll find reading material, Bibles and hymnals located in the pew racks in front of you. Shepherd of the Hills UCC encourages everyone to wear a name tag so that we may all greet one another by name. Sometime during the service, a friendship folder will be passed up and down the pew. Please spend a moment to fill in all of the information. We will not come knocking on your door, unless you personally request us to do so. We would like to send you a newsletter, either by mail or if you furnish us with you email address, it will be emailed you. You may also request a visit from the Pastor, just to say hello and ask if we can answer any questions.

Check the announcement page in the bulletin for location of meetings/groups/classes and their topics happening throughout the week.

Communion Celebration

Shepherd of the Hills UCC celebrates Communion as a community on the first Sunday of each month and for special services.  Communion is also available following all other Sunday worship services at the front of the sanctuary.  Everyone is welcome at Christ's Table.  There are no exceptions.

Social Time

After services, the patio (in front of the sanctuary by the fountain) is abuzz with fellowship and activity. Tables are scattered about, some offering coffee and others offering information about current and upcoming activities.  Usually on the first Sunday of the month the Good Earth Group offer church grown produce and Fair Trade Coffees and Teas for sale.

In side the church narthex (lobby), you will find our literature racks.  Please pick up any literature that interests you.

We hope that after your visit Shepherd of the Hills UCC you’ll feel welcome to return soon.
