Shepherd of the Hills UCC is an Open and Affirming Congregation.  We welcome all of God's children.  We really mean it when we say "No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here." You will be greeted and appreciated for the story of life which you bring to our community of faith. Together, sharing and affirming all of our journeys we live the authentic Christian community as we encourage, support, develop and empower each other for our shared ministry.

We support Marriage Equality across all 50 states. We celebrate that persons can now be judged on the strength of their character and not on their love life, that children can be raised in loving households knowing that both parents have full legal rights on behalf of their children and their spouses.
