Welcome To Shepherd In The Pines

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 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 every Sunday, as we celebrate the Holy Sacrament of our Lord at 9:00 a.m.; enjoy the food and the fellowship at 10:30 a.m.; and, study the Word of God in Sunday School and Adult Bible Class at 11:00 a.m.

We are a Lutheran church, which centers its tradition and beliefs in the historic Reformation by Dr. Martin Luther on October 31, 1517. We are a member of the Pacific Southwest District of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, which is comprised of 300 congregations and 168 Lutheran Schools in Southern California, Arizona, and southern Nevada.

We are a confessional church, which centers its emphasis on the Bible, as the inspired and revealed Word of God in all of its truth and purity, and the only rule and norm for faith and practice.

We are a sacramental church, which celebrates the spiritual gifts and blessings we have received through Holy Baptism and especially the power and benefit of Christ’s “real presence” offered to us in the Lord’s Supper.

We 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.
