Family Tree Service Project
As a part of our Be Transformed emphasis, each quarter Shepherd's church, Sunday School and Day School will have a mission or service project that is our focus.  This quarter, September - November, help us reach out to  
The Family Tree  community in two different ways. 

You can help by donating $20 for snacks and drinks for one or more Sundays, this year. Click HERE to sign up for one or more Sundays. Drop your $20 donation in either the offering plate or the church office. Please indicate Family Tree on memo line of check or envelope.

Available each Sunday in the gym with instructions, help our Transforming Tree bloom. Your monetary offering will help fund a Giant Game Night for these special families.
