How We Serve


God has called us to serve in our churches, our community, and around the world. At Our Shepherd, we believe that we are the hands and feet of Christ, and have a responsibility to share Christ’s love with our fellow man through service. These are some of the ways we do that:

Food Pantry

Our food pantry takes place on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays each month from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Our Shepherd’s Food Pantry serves our community by providing food for families and individuals in crisis.
