Feed My Starving Children (FMSC)

Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is an organization where volunteers come together to package meals containing rice, soy, vegetables and vitamins. These packaged meals are then sent all over the world to feed hungry children.

Shepherd of the Lakes has volunteered to pack meals on Saturday, April 28th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at the Libertyville location. Sign up to join others from Shepherd of the Lakes as we pack meals for those in need. 

If you have never packed meals, rest assured that this is an easy and rewarding experience for all ages. Many of the volunteer activities do require you to stand for the event. Please contact Amy Nielsen at if you would like to sign up to help or if you have any questions.

New Light Bulbs

You might have noticed that it is a bit brighter in the Worship Center.

That's because the light bulbs have been changed! 

Yes, the cobwebs have been dusted and light bulbs replace by some brave folks who aren't afraid to go to new heights to brighten up your worship.
