SOV Vacation Bible School
SOV Vacation Bible School this summer will take place July 25th to the 29th from 9 am until Noon. Hope you can join us as we journey with Joseph from prison to palace. We will learn about ancient Egypt and how God sent Jacob’s son Joseph there in a remarkable way. His brothers threw him in a pit and plotted to sell him, but God protected him and later saved the entire household of Jacob from famine through Joseph’s privileged position in Pharaoh’s court.

Easter Egg Hunt, March 19th
Long before the Easter Bunny hopped down Main Street delivering eggs, Jesus walked around the Sea of Galilee with his friends spreading a message of God’s love and the power of forgiveness.
On Saturday morning, March 19th, Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church will host its 10th Annual East Egg Hunt and Easter Storytelling for children third grade and younger. We will hunt for eggs, sing and hear the story of Holy Week.
Arrival time and singing will start at 10:15 and the storytelling will begin at 10:30. To ensure that we have enough filled eggs and goody bags on hand, please sign up by contacting Margaret Doyle at 978-772-7095.
This family event is offered free of charge. Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church is located at the historic Grange Hall, 80 Champney Street, Groton. Hope you can join us for a fun-filled, meaningful time!
