Love Gives

We give out of love for Christ

We believe financially giving expands God’s Kingdom and expresses the tangible, sacrificing love of God.

Your gift furthers Jesus’ mission of loving God and our neighbors, helps us grow in our faith, and makes a difference in the level of ministry at and through Shepherd. Thank you!
