First Baptist Church of Cottonwood - The Shepherd's Heart
Cottonwood, CA 96022
Details: The "Shepherd's Heart" ministry of Cottonwood is all about meeting needs; providing food, support and valuable information to those of the Cottonwood area who would otherwise fall between the proverbial cracks. With the opening of it's doors on Tuesday, May 22, 2007, Shepherd's Heart began the arduous task of "filling in the gaps" for many of the Cottonwood families who lack the transportation to reach the much larger assistance programs, such as A.C.C.A located in Anderson. Shepherd's Heart continues to expand its resources; networking with area service agencies to meet both short and long term needs. In October of 2009, clothing distribution was added to the ministry. Beyond the nutritional support (food boxes) is an even greater need for spiritual and emotional support for the families and individuals who seek out our help. Our ultimate goal is to find long term solutions rather than just giving a hand out, with no accountability.
