Sunday Morning Bible Study at 9:30 am and Worship at 10:45 am

FACES members have a special Bible study in a location that is easily accessible for those in wheelchairs. After the Bible study, most of them go to worship at the 10:45am service. Our FACES people show a great love for worship. We have a very successful worship companion program for those who would like a church member to sit next to them and worship with them during the church service. 


FACES Night Out - The third Wednesday of every month from 6:00 - 7:30 pm, an evening for further spiritual development and fellowship opportunities, with games, crafts, music, devotion and a snack.


Through FACES, deep relationships have been established as the body of Christ seeks to serve and be a blessing to each other. Our FACES members are our partners in and an active part of the ministry at Shepherd of the Hills. Along with participating in Bible study and worship, they occasionally serve as ushers, greeters, helpers with Vacation Bible School, prayer ministers, and have even taught the children’s lesson during the worship service. There is no limit to how our FACES people can serve.


FACES is a life changing and joyful ministry for everyone involved—for those who serve and those who are served. We welcome all people to become a part of the family of God at Shepherd of the Hills through our FACES program. Our prayer is that all will grow in their faith in Jesus Christ and love for each other.
