Shepherd of the Mountain Lutheran

Our Beginnings

Shepherd of the Mountain Lutheran Church began almost a century ago when residents of Cedar Creek made bricks on the river bank in the center of the community and carried them up the hill behind it to build a church. The little church on the hillside continues to be open, welcoming the residents of Cedar Creek to worship each Sunday. They are served by the Lutheran pastors of the Fort Apache Reservation.

Off of Highway 73 in the town of Cedar Creek. Coming from the East - look up to the left to see a rocky staircase ascending to a beautiful Lutheran Church.
