Missions

PRAY! Missionaries across the globe need our fervent prayers now more than ever. Many of them are quarantined and not able to provide fully to the people most in need. Some are providing online support to their students, their congregations and their staff, while others cannot provide online support due to the poverty in their region. Many of the missionaries highlight how the COVID pandemic has affected them. 



Shepherd of the Hills recognizes that our purpose is to share the Word of God and salvation through Christ to people throughout the world. This congregational focus has led to the recognition and support of missionaries throughout the world. Shepherd has developed relationships with and provides support to specific missionaries in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and South America.

Thank you, Congregation, for your continued financial support, prayers, and personal involvement with Shepherd of the Hills Mission Ministry. Please read the high-level summary of 2021 activities for more information on individual missionaries and organizations that we, as a church, support.

Mission Team Members Visit Safe Outdoor Spaces (S0S)

 

On April 21, Shepherd of the Hills members partnered with Resurrection in the City (an LCMS church near downtown) to feed the homeless who are living in a Denver Department of Housing Safe Outdoor Space. These residents are getting a hand up by providing meals, tent shelters, showers and laundry service as they transition from being on the street to permanent housing. Resurrection in the City provides one meal a month to the camp. It was wonderful to interact with the dedicated staff of Resurrection as well as the people at SOS.  We hope to do many more service projects for these residents. If you want to participate, please reach out to Vicki Faas (vfaas@comcast.net) and we will include you in future service to this community.
