Volunteer/Donate your Talent:
Are you an amazing woodworker, chef, painter, or green thumb? We’d love for you to share your talents with our wonderful community! Help us get to know you!
Each Sunday we will need 1 team lead and 8 communion servers to help with serving communion. The team lead will be responsible for setting up the communion stations and will need to arrive prior to the service to allow time.
Check out our instructional video about serving communion to learn more about it.

COMMUNITY CONNECTION TASK FORCE
Serve in the Community
We take great pride in our work with one another and within our community, through our Outreach Ministries at Shepherd of the Lake!
A Community Connection Task Force has been created to further Shepherd of the Lake’s mission of “Open Hearts” by creating a process to engage the congregation in new ways to serve our neighbors in Scott County and around the world. The team consists of Chris Jerke, Allie Olinger, Rhiannon Johnson, Jo Sindelar, Bob Fust, Patty Matthews, Shannon Hoffmann, and Pastor Dan. Feel free to reach out to any of us with questions or ideas.

SERVE IN THE COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES
Families Moving Forward (FMF) is a program that provides overnight shelter and meals for families experiencing homelessness. Shepherd of the Lake is partnering with Beacon Interfaith Housing to provide groceries and hot meals for FMF. The families will be at the Chaska Program Center during the day and at a local hotel overnight.
The Link is a partner of SOLLC that provides housing, community, and counseling to sex-trafficked youth. Shepherd of the Lake collects personal items and clothing year-round. More opportunities to get involved include: providing meals, teaching life skills classes, or leading activities with the youth.
The Shepherd’s Path Community Garden is located in Horkey Park off of County Road 42 and Shepherd’s Path Road. Plots are available to rent.
No Horsin’ Around
No Horsin' Around volunteers provide food and fellowship for the families that care for the horses at Canterbury Park. We bring the dinner, tour the barns to learn about the daily horse care routines, worship in a bilingual service setting, and share a meal and fellowship. Events run from May - August.
The Community Action Partnership (CAP) agency offers a variety of important local services for those in need in Scott/Carver Counties.
