Crossroads Connection Support

Crossroads Connection Support

Crossroads Connection – Supporting Food Insecure Students in 9 schools (plus video) If nothing else, these past years have been of change and uncertainty. Crossroads has been waiting, watching, and trying to determine the best path forward. One thing that has not changed is our mission; it has always been and will continue to be eliminating food insecurity as a barrier to learning.  The distribution channel for our weekend food bags was through the schools, so we’ve had to re-evaluate that practice. During this time of remote learning, we will be providing different variety of food in larger portions

Coronavirus Cancellations

Coronavirus Cancellations

Dear Shepherd of the Hills Community, Shepherd of the Hills church leaders have been in conversation regarding ministry and worship during this unprecedented time in our nation and world related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Due to many unknowns and concern we have for people in and beyond our congregation and out of an abundance of caution, we will not hold worship services or education gatherings until further notice. The wonderful thing about the Church is that no matter where we are, we are the Church. We can live our faith through what we at SOTH call the “Marks of Discipleship”
