THANK YOU for your support of this year’s Annual Conference Mission Project, which was to provide water to our hard hit Navajo nation.  Because of your generosity more than $30,000 has been raised to bring relief in this season of COVID-19.
West Valley Food Bank donations are down during the summer & hunger has no season, please donate.
Please bring your donated food items Monday-Friday on the first week of the month. Place them in the bin outside of the church office. Your gifts are greatly appreciated and help so many people who are in need.


Our Coups for Troop program is temporarily suspended until the office re-opens.
Coups for Troops is a government program set up to assist military families stationed overseas by providing them with manufacturers’ coupons that may be used in the base commissary or PI for up to 6 months from the coupon expiration date. For a number of years, the Visitor’ s Center in Sun City collected and mailed coupons to a base in Japan and another in Germany. Due to reorganization, the Visitor’s Center recently discontinued the program. The Shepherd of the Hills Mission Committee has assumed the responsibility of collecting and mailing the coupons as one of our outreach projects.coups-for-troops

Manufacturers’ coupons (no store coupons or rebates) must be neatly clipped and deposited in the basket located by the Church office. (If you are unable to do the clipping but would like to donate your unused coupons, please place them in the basket and one of our coupon clippers will take over.)

Any questions, please call Mary Jane Banfield or Sand’ee Spears.

 Communion Offerings – Nine months out of the year the gifts support the Special Days and Causes designated by our Annual Conference as special mission projects.

 Holiday Offerings – At Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, we receive a special offering which is sent directly to support mission ministries that bring healing and hope.

Monthly Food Collection – As we are fed on Communion weekends (first Saturday and Sunday of the month) with the bread and cup of Christ’s love, we seek to also feed others through the collection of non-perishable food items.  Drop boxes/wagons are located in the Chapel on Saturdays and Sanctuary on Sundays. Donations are given to Valley View Food Bank. valleyviewfoodbank.wordpress.com)
