Community Lunch Program
We are inviting you to join us in spreading hope, joy and love to those experiencing homelessness here in our community. It's as simple as making lunches at home and dropping them off at Shepherd OR you can join a team of volunteers who will hand-deliver lunches to those in need. Here's how you can participate.
Dates (2nd Saturday of Every Month)
November 13 (Thanksgiving Harvest Table Outreach)
Do you have a heart to serve and engage with those experiencing homelessness? We are looking for volunteers with humble and teachable hearts who are eager to love and build relationships.
We are going out in into our city in efforts to share God’s love by praying, building relationships, meeting an immediate need and pointing people to resources on local housing options.
This month outreach looks different! Instead of distributing sack lunches, we will be sitting down to break bread and celebrate over a Thanksgiving meal. It will be a time of serving and getting to know those in the homeless community.
