“Welcome to the web page for Christ the Shepherd Lutheran Church.  This is no accidental visit on your part, but a God-ordained moment, and we are so happy that you would spend some time getting to know us. 

At Christ the Shepherd, we believe that we are called to proclaim that God loves you and that He wants to be in relationship with you.  You may know a lot about God, or a very little, and that’s ok.  God meets us where we are.  He doesn’t expect us to have everything figured out before we meet Him.

We also believe that God shows his love to us in many ways, but that the greatest way he showed that love was by sending his Son Jesus to die on a cross in our place, so that our sinfulness could be forgiven.  Jesus did not stay dead, but God brought Him back to life and He still lives!  The fact that Jesus is alive means that there is hope for us, no matter how dead our lives may seem.  God sends His Holy Spirit to live within all believers so that we can experience his life in our own daily lives.  What incredibly good news that is!

You will notice a prayer request section on our home page.  We take prayer seriously, and consider it a great privilege to be able to pray for others.  If you have any concerns you would like to have lifted up, please feel free to use that section.  If there is anything else that we can help you with, or questions that we can answer, please feel free to use the contact information on our page.

As Pastor of Christ the Shepherd Lutheran Church, it is my honor to invite you to our service of worship any time you are in the Schoharie vicinity.  We meet on Sundays at 9:00am.  We would love to meet you and tell you more about this God who loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life!   May you be blessed by God as you continue in your spiritual journey.  We would love to share in that journey with you.”
God’s Blessings -
Pastor Colleen
