Shepherd in the Pines Lutheran Church (SITP)


We want to say welcome to everyone, especially to our guests visiting the Big Bear Valley.

We invite you to join us, as we worship, praise, honor, and glorify the name of the triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The words of the Psalmist, “I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord!” (Psalm 122:1)

Come and join us for worship, as we celebrate the Holy Sacrament of our Lord Jesus Christ every Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

We are currently vacant without a pastor but blessed with the spiritual assistance of guest pastors every Sunday.

You are also encouraged to listen to the sermons every Monday on our website:

Unfortunately, since the COVID pandemic in November of 2019, we have lost approximately 60 per cent of our church membership.

Most of our former members and friends have moved away with our average Sunday attendance during the last two years of about seventeen worshippers.

We are still struggling to meet all our financial obligations and keeping the doors of our church open.

Therefore, we need your help and especially your prayers, as you consider supporting financially our ministry.

With your help, prayers, support, and God’s blessings, we are confident to reach the financial needs of our church.

Not only that, but as we once again begin rebuilding our church spiritually as a viable ministry in the Big Bear Valley.

We also hope and pray that our worship and fellowship with you and your family will be meaningful and inspirational, as you continue to grow spiritually in your own faith and trust in Jesus Christ as your Savior and the Lord of your Christian life!

In Christ’s service, The Board of Elders
