Actively Changing the World

Helping you be the change.

Serving others is one of the ways we can demonstrate God's love for all people and play an active role in creating change in the world. There are several ways to use your unique passions, interests, and skillsets to serve others within the walls of Church of the Shepherd, in our community, and beyond. We'd love to help you join the movement!

Serving  During  the  COVID-19  Outbreak

During this unique and crazy time, our desire is to BE THE CHURCH, reaching out and helping those in need. As followers of Christ, we all want to love our neighbors. This situation is so different from our serve efforts of the past when we all jumped in collecting food, packing backpacks or supplies, mucking out homes, delivering flood buckets, clearing debris, rebuilding homes, and so much more.

The situation with COVID-19 is very, very different. We have all been asked to stay at home and restrict our contact with other people. So, we are needing to help those in need without putting you, our volunteers, and those we help, in danger of being exposed to the virus.  We are also being mindful to not overwhelm the very systems and people that we are striving to help.

With that in mind, here are ways you can help (click on each box for more details):
THANK YOU for your willingness and desire to help! Everyone has been impacted by the issues related to COVID-19.  It is hard to wrap our heads around what now has become our new normal.  We will continue in conversation with our ministry partners and as we do so we will update pieces on this page as things unfold.  In the meantime, lean into the comfort that comes from the God who loves us and is always with us.

Blessings and prayers to each of you,

Denise Spalding
Director of Missions
