Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church is a proud congregation member of the North American Lutheran Church and Augsburg Lutheran Churches.

We welcome all who wish to worship. 

Communion is open and is available at all services.

Our worship services are currently Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM and Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM.  We are live streaming the Sunday morning service on YouTube.  We are also recording the service for viewing at a later date for your convenience. Please use the YouTube icon on this page to take you to our YouTube channel.

While wearing a mask is not required, you are welcome to do so.  We provide basic masks if you are in need of one.

If you are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms, please do not attend worship until your symptoms are gone, and you are confident you are no longer contagious.

Please join us for coffee and fellowship after the Sunday service.  The second Sunday of each month brunch is served.  Also check out our calendar for upcoming services and events.


We look forward to seeing you!


We also have a message for a couple of very special people.  Brian and Julie have once again donated all of the candy passed out at the 4th of July parade in Sayner this past Thursday by Pastor Bill and his helpers.  Thank you once again for your generosity.



Proverbs 22:1
A [good] name is rather to be chosen than great riches, [And] loving favor rather than silver and gold.

Proverbs Chapter 10 - American Standard Version

The proverbs of Solomon. A wise son maketh a glad father; But a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing; But righteousness delivereth from death.
Jehovah will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish; But he thrusteth away the desire of the wicked.
He becometh poor that worketh with a slack hand; But the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
He that gathereth in summer is a wise son; [But] he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
Blessings are upon the head of the righteous; But violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
The memory of the righteous is blessed; But the name of the wicked shall rot.
The wise in heart will receive commandments; But a prating fool shall fall.
He that walketh uprightly walketh surely; But he that perverteth his ways shall be known.
He that winketh with the eye causeth sorrow; But a prating fool shall fall.
The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life; But violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
Hatred stirreth up strifes; But love covereth all transgressions.
In the lips of him that hath discernment wisdom is found; But a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding.
Wise men lay up knowledge; But the mouth of the foolish is a present destruction.
The rich man`s wealth is his strong city: The destruction of the poor is their poverty.
The labor of the righteous [tendeth] to life; The increase of the wicked, to sin.
He is in the way of life that heedeth correction; But he that forsaketh reproof erreth.
He that hideth hatred is of lying lips; And he that uttereth a slander is a fool.
In the multitude of words there wanteth not transgression; But he that refraineth his lips doeth wisely.
The tongue of the righteous is [as] choice silver: The heart of the wicked is little worth.
The lips of the righteous feed many; But the foolish die for lack of understanding.
The blessing of Jehovah, it maketh rich; And he addeth no sorrow therewith.
It is as sport to a fool to do wickedness; And [so is] wisdom to a man of understanding.
The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him; And the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
When the whirlwind passeth, the wicked is no more; But the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, So is the sluggard to them that send him.
The fear of Jehovah prolongeth days; But the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
The hope of the righteous [shall be] gladness; But the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
The way of Jehovah is a stronghold to the upright; But it is a destruction to the workers of iniquity.
The righteous shall never be removed; But the wicked shall not dwell in the land.
The mouth of the righteous bringeth forth wisdom; But the perverse tongue shall be cut off.
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable; But the mouth of the wicked [speaketh] perverseness.
