It is with a heavy heart that Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church in Sayner announces that all church services and all other activities at Shepherd of the Lakes have been cancelled until further notice due to a Vilas county mandate issued from the CDC. Please if you know of someone who does not have email or access to Facebook or our website or any other means of learning about our closure, call them immediately and let them know. Pass the word as you are able. Thank you.
