Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church Welcome to the web site for Shepherd of the Valley. The Lutheran Church is located on Main Street (across from the Post Office) in the charming, historic town of Dayton, Virginia, on the south edge of Harrisonburg, in the Shenandoah Valley.


We are a small, traditional Lutheran congregation with a "down home" touch where you will be sure to receive a friendly welcome. We'll have the red carpet out for you!


Covid-19 News
We reopened the church on Palm Sunday 2021, after being closed for in-house worship services since March 2020. As of July 25, we have resumed congregational singing and weekly communion.
