Welcome to Shepherd United Methodist Church

Lord's Mountain Orphanage

  • Print







  • Next Sunday, February 10 is Mission Sunday and the Missions/Outreach Team has designated Lord’s Mountain Orphanage in Zambia as the recipient of money in special envelopes included in your bulletin. The director of the orphanage, Pastor Bernard Lumene spoke to us in November and we were deeply moved by his story and his commitment to and love for the children. Financial assistance is needed to enable this important ministry to continue! We pray that you will consider bringing money for the orphanage to put in special offering envelopes on February 10.


  • To show our appreciation to our church family for supporting mission projects in 2012, the Missions/Outreach Team is sponsoring a soup and dessert luncheon next Sunday, February 10 at 11:45 a.m. (immediately after Sunday School).  Table service, drinks, a variety of soups, and desserts will be furnished--just bring yourself and enjoy the fellowship.  During the meal, a brief video will be shown highlighting Lord’s Mountain Orphanage in Zambia, recipient of Mission Sunday money during the worship service on February 10. We hope you will join us! 


  • We are excited to announce another opportunity to support Lord’s Mountain Orphanage. We received a list of desired items for the children from Pastor Bernard, which includes specific high school textbooks, storybooks, coloring books, exercise books, dictionaries, school supplies, basketballs & basketball ring, and volleyball & volleyball net. A shipping container is being sent to United Methodist missionaries, Rev. Delbert & Sandy Groves in Zambia that allows us free shipping to the orphanage if we get the items to Florida by March 15. If you are interested in helping with this project, please sign your name next to one or two desired items posted on the hallway bulletin board. Thank you!!!
