Pizza Friday
  • Pizza Friday has been an outreach to Woodbridge High School students since 2000. We offer an inexpensive lunch and a safe place for students to hang out, relax, and have some fun before returning to class. We need about 24 people each week to serve approximately 300-400 students quickly, while modeling hospitality, a servant’s heart, and God’s love. Many students have never been on a church campus, so we want to be very welcoming and treat them well while they are with us.
  • If you have 90 minutes, can smile, say a kind word, and pass out pizza then you are perfect for this ministry. It only takes a moment to make a difference in students’ lives.

Irvine Feeds The World – Help End Hunger

Each September in support of Hunger Awareness Month, we host a three-day, fun, festive, and family-friendly service event to help end world hunger. In partnership with Kids Around The World and their One-Meal Program, hundreds of volunteers assemble 50,000+ meals to aid in domestic and international relief efforts.

Many children only have one meal per day, so One-Meal was developed to take a child from Stage 4 malnutrition to a healthy state by eating one-meal.  Each meal only costs 27cents!

Foster Care

Have you ever thought about adoption or foster care?  If that isn’t for you, did you know there are many other ways to get involved and help adoptive and foster families? Shepherd’s Grove is partnering with ZeroBy2020 to help find a family for every child in Orange County.  Here are ways to get involved:

  • Ambassador: equip other Churches/Campuses about Foster care engagement.
  • Family Care Coordinator
  • Adopting
  • Fostering
  • Mentoring
  • CASA – become a Court Appointed Special Advocate.
  • Sign up for the Orphan Care newsletter and Orphan Care Prayer Team

The ZeroBy2020 vision started on August 22, 2017, when over 30 churches met along with the Social Service Agency of Orange County and other organizations such as OC United and Olive Crest. Every year the county is short of having enough families to care for all the vulnerable children who need help.  That is why ZeroBy2020 is pouring its hearts and efforts into this movement that will involve hundreds of churches working together in collaboration with the County of Orange.

The goal behind ZeroBy2020 is to find a family for every child in OC and equip the church to support these families.  With the help of our local government and a church-to-church strategy, we can accomplish this God-size goal together.

Royal Family Kids Camps

The primary purpose of Royal Family KIDS camps is to give foster children ages 6-12 a week of positive memories and royal treatment in a Christian camp environment.  All of the kids have experienced trauma in their lives, along with abuse or neglect.  So, when a kid attends camp they receive lots of attention and encouragement.  For most of these children, it’s the best week of the year – a special time when they can focus on having fun and enjoy being a kid.

Each summer Shepherd’s Grove helps support a team of over 120 volunteers who put on a week-long camp experience for children from Orange County’s foster care system. These volunteers model and teach the love of Christ, impart hope and provide a positive memory for all the campers.  There are many areas to serve including counselors and activity directors. Following camp, there is an opportunity to participate in a year-round mentoring program.
