We are a little church with a big heart. Whether you have an hour or would like to commit to long-term service, Shepherd of the Mountains has a variety of ways to connect with the needs of our community.
Community Blood Drives
We partner with Vitalant to host 5-6 blood drives per year. Members volunteer at the welcome desk and are regular donors. One blood donation can save the lives of up to three people!
Food Bank Ministry
Shepherd of the Mountains supports the Jackson Food Cupboard to help fill the pantries of those less fortunate. Food items that are most needed are: cereal, canned fruit, pasta, canned tomato sauce, macaroni & cheese, canned meats and tuna fish, and soups.
For a complete listing of all items needed at the Jackson Hole Food Cupboard, please pick up our Food Bank flyers inside the church narthex or the church sanctuary. Take extras for your home, office or car as a helpful reminder. Also, please be watchful of the expiration dates on all your donated items. Expired items will not be accepted at the Jackson Food Cupboard. Food items may be placed in the baskets in the sanctuary at the altar.
Habitat for Humanity
Each summer, we have a congregational build day with our local Habitat for Humanity, and many members volunteers on other days as well.
Hole Food Rescue
Each Sunday, Shepherd of the Mountains’ volunteers partner with Hole Food Rescue to feed our community and end food waste. We pick up Persephone and Picnic’s donations and sort it at the Hole Food Rescue facility.
Shepherds of the Cloth
We make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. Quilts serve both physical and spiritual needs – providing a shield from cold and rain, but also reminding those in great need that they are not alone.
Circle of Care
The Circle of Care ministry provides comfort, support and hands on care for those in need. Working with One22 to identify people who would most benefit, our efforts are far-ranging. We provide friendly visits, transportation, meal preparation, chore services, child care, shopping, errands, companionship, home repairs, and phone calls. Even the small acts make a big difference in the lives of many in our community.
Lutheran Photo Hosts
Donning bright blue shirts and smiles, volunteers hang out on the town square and help our tourists get that perfect family photo under the elk arches. Locals and small businesses appreciate the goodwill fostered.
