Shepherd of Peace Lutheran Church

We welcome visitors with open arms and our family friendly services
allow you and/or your entire family to share in worship together!
Below is some great information about our church and what you can expect
during your first visit to Shepherd of Peace Church!

When are your services?

Our services are every Sunday at 8:00 AM  &  10:30 AM
Coffee and donuts are available between services in Fellowship Hall.

Where do you meet?
We meet in our Church Building on 203 Port Neal Rd, Sergeant Bluff, IA 51054 
(Corner of Port Neal Rd & Topaz Dr)

How should I dress?
We have a friendly and casual atmosphere, dress the way you feel most comfortable, from jeans to business casual to suit and tie. But don’t worry about what you are wearing. We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than what you wearing.

Do I need to bring anything?
No, but feel free to bring a pen and note pad to take notes if you wish. Bibles are available for use in each pew. Be sure to pickup a worship bulletin from one of the ushers when you arrive. The service outline and all of the readings and prayers are printed there for you.

Will I have to stand up and introduce myself?
Newcomers and visitors do not have to introduce themselves during the worship services. However, you will have a chance to meet the people around you at the beginning of the service as we begin our services with greetings.

What are the services like?
We celebrate a single worship service at 9:00am which includes traditional hymns integrated with contemporary i-worship interactive multimedia content, Bible readings, Children's Sermon's and more.

What is the music like?
Our services contain music from the Lutheran Hymn Book , Red Song Book, i-Worship DVD's, and special arrangements played on our new organ and wonderful choir music during the holiday seasons.

Where should I go once inside the building?
Just follow the crowd through the main entrance which opens into our fellowship hall. Feel free to mingle around once inside before and after the services (coffee and donuts available in fellowship hall). 
Ushers are located just inside the door if you have any questions.  The usher is the person to see for worship bulletins, or if you have any questions concerning the Church, services, or Communion.

What about the offering?
We pass an offering plate during the service so that our worship may include bringing gifts to God. This is completely voluntary and is intended for our members. Visitors should not feel obliged to participate.

I'm worried that I will feel out of place.
We hope that our web site will ease your mind but if you have a question, please ask someone for help. Don't hesitate to say, "Hello, I’m visiting, what is this about?" Our congregation is very friendly and is happy to have the chance to welcome new visitors. There are always other visitors at each service so you shouldn't feel alone.

I don't know that much about the Bible.
That's what we're here for! Church and Bible Study are opportunities to grow in our knowledge of the Bible and faith in Jesus. You don't have to know anything about the bible or even any religion to attend a service.

I come from a non-Christian or non-Lutheran background.
Please come by and check out one of our services. You will not be expected to say or do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable. Come to see what we're all about and participate in as much or as little of the service as you feel comfortable with. Please be sure to read about our communion policy on the cards located in the seating area before participating in communion if you choose to do so.

Are my children welcome to visit Sunday school?

Absolutely. When you arrive at the church on Sunday, simply check with an usher and they will be happy to show you and your children where the Sunday school classrooms are located and introduce you to one of our Sunday school teachers.
