Shepherd of the Hills COVID-19 Update
Per CDC, State, County and City stipulations, Shepherd of the Hills is able to gather in person once again.
DUE TO THE CURRENT INCREASE IN DELTA VARIANT CASES, WE ARE REINSTITUTING OUR MASKING REQUIREMENT FOR ALL INDIVIDUALS WHILE IN THE SHEPHERD BUILDING. Masks are available immediately inside the building if you arrive without one. If you haven't yet been fully vaccinated against Covid, we strongly urge you to do so. Thank you for helping us by doing what we can to keep each other safe.

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 see more details on the Giving page.
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.
