COMMUNITY: REACHING OUT TO OUR NEIGHBORS
We are encouraged by Christ to share one another's pain and sorrow.
Through prayer, contact and support groups, the Bereavement Ministry
members share Christ's love to those who are grieving the loss of a
loved one. Contact Joanne Mitchell through the church office. For more information about Grief Share, visit their website here.
SPAN provides help to families in our community needing food or
emergency financial assistance for eviction prevention, utility
cut-offs and prescription costs. SPAN is supported by congregations
throughout Severna Park and is located in the OSLC Parish House. Visit
their website here.
Service and Outreach
The mission of the Service and Outreach Ministry is to help provide
the members of Our Shepherd opportunities to serve our neighbors –
whether they are local or far away. We serve in a number of ways –
supporting SPAN, sheltering and feeding the homeless, bringing meals to
the homebound, making quilts to warm the cold, sending shoeboxes with
gifts to those who might otherwise have nothing, raising social justice awareness…and there is more that
is done and that can be done. All are welcome! New ideas on how to better serve God's people are welcome too! Contact the church office.
