Shepherd in the Pines Lutheran Church (SITP)

GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, THE GOOD SHEPHERD!

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, honor and glorify the name of the triune God: FatherSon and Holy Spirit. The words of 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 every Sunday, as we celebrate the Holy Sacrament of our Lord at 10:00 a.m. You are also encouraged to listen to our audio broadcast every Sunday on our website: www.sitpbigbear.org.

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 17 worshippers.

We are struggling now to meet our financial obligations and keeping the doors of our church open. Therefore, we need your help and especially your prayers, and hopefully also your special gift for our ministry, so that we can rebuild and grow spiritually again.

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

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!

Yours, in Christ’s service,

Rev. Elroi Reimnitz, Th.D., D.D.
