SHEPHERD OF THE LAKES CHURCH
We partnered with Shepherd of the Lakes Church in Brighton to add a Community Liaison to their team. The Community Liaison promotes and creates programs to help our local community. Projects include full-time assistance to Labor of Love, Genesis, Personal Needs Pantry, and Health and Wellness. The Kellogg Family Foundation and Shepherd of the Lakes Church have granted $16,000 a year over the course of 10 years; that's $160,000!
Genesis — For those experiencing great pain in your life, recovering from an addiction, struggling with the concept of God or the church, craving a loving community, or just curious, Genesis is for you!
Shepherd of the Lakes Personal Needs Pantry — Filling the gap for those in need, this virtual superstore is stocked with personal needs items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, diapers, and other things that your bridge cards or WIC won’t cover. It is our honor to partner with this great program. Kellogg Family Foundation has provided $5,000 in funds to help kick off, and provide resources for, the pantry remodeling at Shepherd of The Lakes.
Stephen Ministry Shepherd of the Lakes — Stephen Ministers are well-chosen, trained, and supervised to offer a ministry of Christian care to those in need. The Stephen Ministry offers a trained, caring presence and listening ear.
Health and Wellness — This project is a unique blend of professional nursing and spiritual caregiving. This can be in the form of a health advisor, counselor, or educator, an integrator of faith and health, or a liaison to faith and community resources as well as the medical community. They assist in helping those in need with resources.
