Soup Cookbook

Calling All Soup Chefs

We had a fantastic Dinner Church worship experience this Lent. 

A big part of that was the delicious soups brought by many. So, we have decided to put together our SOTP SoupBook with all of those delicious recipes. If you brought a soup for Dinner Church or if you just have a wonderful soup recipe, please send them our way so we can include them. Please email your recipe to donna@sotpmail.com If you have any questions, please contact Donna Kelly via email or through the church office. Thanks, and happy souping!

Special Request

From the Congregational Treasurer

As monetary donations are given to Shepherd of the Prairie Lutheran Church, it is important that our counters and contributions secretary are informed of the following: 

  1. the donor’s name, and
  2. the breakdown of the amount of the donation or the per cent of the donation that should be credited to the General Fund, the Mortgage Service Fund or any other fund.
  • For those donors who are using the pre-printed envelopes provided by SOTP, the blanks on the envelopes need to be filled out so that the donation is credited to the proper account.
  • For those donors who are submitting donations by check but without an envelope, please make sure that the donor’s name is on the check and the breakdown of the donation is indicated on the “memo” line of the check.

Over time, we have experienced some problems with being able to credit members’ accounts when checks are received directly from banks or other financial institutions without any identifying information about the donor.  Many of these donations are qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) from retirement accounts.

To help alleviate this situation, I ask that each member who has a financial institution directly submitting checks to SOTP to please notify that institution that your name needs to be provided either on or along with your check.  This will be very helpful in making sure that your donation gets properly credited to your account.

Thank you for your assistance in helping address this matter and thank you for your continued support of SOTP.

Blessings to you all.

Hearing Aid - Loop System

In the Sanctuary


Ask your hearing care professional how. Some hearing aids are set up where they might have an app on your cellphone that says “telecoil mode”, and you’ll activate that. You might have the ability to adjust the volume up and turn down for the microphone level. But again, talk to your hearing care professional, they should be able to show you all those options, and then play around with it, when you’re in church.

 Contact: your hearing aid professional





Prairie Pointe Quilters

Scissors Needed

Happy New Year everyone! 

As always our ladies have been hard at work making some fun and some beautiful quilts.  As you can see, this quilt isn’t quite finished, but won’t this be special for someone?

We are asking for a donation of some new, high quality fabric scissors to the quilters.  We had one pair and they have gone missing.  They are the only scissors that really cut the fabric for us.
