the focus of s.e.r.v.e

We have launched an exciting new ministry here at Shepherd. We plan to re-purpose our food trailer to service disaster victims. This will be called S.E.R.V.E. which stands for Shepherd Emergency Relief Volunteer Engagement Team. Disasters like tornados, hurricanes and floods are always unfortunate events but they present a great opportunity for us to act as the body of Christ. If you are interested in learning more about joining this effort let us know!
