Support Our Congregation When You Shop

  • Have you been helping Shepherd of the Rockies by shopping through Amazon Smile and selecting Shepherd of the Rockies as the charitable organization you want to support? This is something you can do all year long. It is just like shopping on Amazon, although you first go to to initially sign up and when you are ready to shop. This way, 0.5% of your eligible purchases will be automatically directed to Shepherd of the Rockies. 
  • Also, don’t forget to keep using those King Soopers Cards! Pre-load them with money to spend on gas and groceries, and SOTR gets a rebate check back. We are earning money for our youth to attend the 2019 LCMS National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis, MN.

A big THANK YOU – to all of the youth of Shepherd of the Rockies for the wonderful job they did on the Christmas program again this year. Our youth are so talented! Thanks also to Sheila Farneth and Cathy Thiesen for all their help. – Glenda Scheele and Kathy Puseman

January 21 Congregational Skiing/Snowboarding – Do you ski or snowboard? Let’s all get together for a day of skiing/riding as a group on Monday, January 21 (Martin Luther King Jr. Day). If you are interested, please sign the sign-up sheet.

Sunday School Sledding – Weather and snow permitting, we will have our Sunday School sledding during the Sunday School time on January 29. We will leave after the fellowship hour and go to the Burland sledding hill on County Road 72. Please send appropriate snow gear with your child (snow pants, coat, boots, hat, gloves, etc.), as well as sleds, inner tubes, etc. All youth (and the young in heart) are encouraged to come!

A New Years Prayer

Dear God,

Thank you that you make all things new. Thank you for all that you’ve allowed into our lives this past year, the good along with the hard things, which have reminded us how much we need you and rely on your presence filling us every single day.

To you be glory and honor, in this New Year, and forever.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
