On Sunday, June 9, Al Shepherds will begin collecting donations to be sent to our troops for a true "Christmas in July."  The items collected will be sent overseas through Operation Stars and Stripes in Georgia, an organization that has been sending donations to our troops for over 15 years.  We will begin our collection of items on June 9, ending this project on June 30.   A list of "critically needed items" can be found on the display table in the Gathering Space and includes:

  • Coffee

  • Monetary donations to assist with high shipping costs

  • Protein Bars & Kind Snacks (Kind Bars & Healthy Grains Clusters) 

  • Oreos

  • Snack-sized Nuts (pistachios are a favorite)

  • Current DVDs

All donations will be mailed the first week in July. Your support of this Outreach event for over 14 years is greatly appreciated by the troops receiving our gifts!


Mark your calendar for the All Shepherds Rummage Sale, to be held Sept. 6 and 7 in the barn. Proceeds from the sale will benefit All Shepherds Camping Ministries. Have an item to donate? We will be collecting donations in late July/early August. More information coming soon!
