“Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?” He saith unto him, “Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.” He saith unto him, “Feed my sheep.” John 21:15-17 
The Shepherd
At First Christian Church a “Shepherd” takes family groups of “Lambs” into their “Flock” to help watch over them and to be a point of contact when needed. By recognizing birthdays, anniversaries, illnesses and/or calling when an unexpected absence over a period of time occurs, the Shepherds help to maintain a personal relationship with all the members and friends of the congregation.
