Isabella County Restoration House


SUMC will partner with the Free Methodist Church the week of March 4 - 10, 2018, to help facilitate the Isabella County Restoration House rotating homeless shelter.  

As has become normal for the Shepherd UMC, we supported the ICRH Homeless Shelter the week of Thanksgiving in 2017.   We were blessed to be able to provide and serve food, interact with shelter guests, “chaperone” overnight,  and clean-up after guests depart in the morning.  

 For more information about ICRH, visit their Facebook page at Facebook/ICRHouse or their website at Isabella County Restoration House.  A recent article in The Morning Sun can be found at ICRH Article

Nutrition Club


The nutrition effort will resume when school starts again the end of August.  

The  need for transporting food bags from Mt. Pleasant to Shepherd continues.  These bags are then distributed to children who could benefit from extra and  convenient food over the weekends.  

The volunteer effort required is picking up about 100 plastic grocery bags at Kinney School off Pickard Street  in Mt. Pleasant at 3 pm every other Thursday and transporting them directly to Shepherd Elementary.  It take approximately 1 hour to complete this task, the strength to carry several bags at once and a vehicle.

 If you would like to be added to the schedule, please contact  Arnie Hammel at 989-828-5415.  Thanks for making an impact on the children of the community.
