Community is about Helping Others
Shepherd serves as a collection site for several non-profit agencies and sponsors activities to assist our community.
To schedule a drop-off appointment please call 303.530.4422.
Donation receipts are provided.
Part of our Ministry at Shepherd of the Hills involves partnering with other organizations to serve our community. We were recently working with Eugenia Brady from the Association for Community Living in Boulder & Broomfield Counties (ACL.org).
Eugenia's position at ACL is to help community organizations and business become more special needs friendly, and our ministry committee met with her a few months ago for advice on how to make our church and worship services more special needs/sensory friendly. We had plans to start some training seminars with her this year, as she has some great insight from observing what her own son, who is on the autism spectrum, needs.
It has come to our attention that Eugenia is struggling with medical issues. Eugenia has some significant medical costs that arose due to complications during hip replacement surgery. She does seem to be recovering well, despite ultimately losing part of a leg, but there is a lot of uncertainty about when she will be able to return to work.
Along with holding Eugenia and her family in prayer, we are raising awareness about this Go Fund Me page started by one of her daughters: GoFundMe-EugeniaBrady
We hope to raise awareness among our community of this fundraiser that will help pay medical and other bills. Please donate to help Eugenia!

Serving within the Boulder Community
The community is welcome to participate in any and all Shepherd activities and events!
Shepherd's facilities are available for use by non-profit organizations and community groups. Click here for more information about community use of the building and facilities.
King Soopers Neighborhood Rewards Program
We have teamed up with King Soopers and their Neighborhood Rewards Program. The program card costs nothing, but 5% of your purchases of groceries or gasoline are donated back to Shepherd of the Hills. These funds are then used for future ministry projects.
There is a sign-up sheet at the church entrance, or contact the church office for details.
Community Infant Program (CIP)
A program of Boulder County Public Health, the Community Infant Program (CIP) works with high-risk families to promote healthy attachments between parents and infants.
CIP services focus on positive parenting, healthy nutrition and feeding practices, and creating family support systems. Services are provided for a limited number of high-need families with children from birth to three years of age.
We are a collection site for disposable diapers, food & formula, clothes, gear, baby furniture, and strollers.
The congregation also provides a Thanksgiving Food Box collection for CIP clients each year. As many as 120 complete Thanksgiving food boxes are typically provided to CIP clients each year.
We always have a need for disposable diapers for these families with young children. Current need is for sizes 1 and 2 especially, but any size is welcome.
Boulder Shelter for the Homeless
Boulder Shelter for the Homeless (BSH) provides safe shelter, food, support services, and an avenue to self-sufficiency for homeless adults in our community.
Shepherd reaches out to BSH by serving as a collection site for a variety of personal items such as toiletries, combs, blankets, socks, etc., as well as general housekeeping supplies. In fall/winter months we focus on jackets, gloves, and other cold-weather gear.
Congregation members serve meals at the Shelter the first and third Tuesdays of each month, 5:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., from October through April. Anyone wishing to assist is invited to call the church office at 303.530.4422 for more details.
