Shepherd cares for a "flock" of 6 to 12 church families within their
neighborhood through visits, phone calls, e-mail messages and greeting

ECHHO (Ecumenical Christian Helping Hands Organization) was founded in 1997
by Stephen Ministers from our church to help meet unmet needs among the
elderly and disabled in Jefferson County.
ECHHO's volunteer corps, drawn from throughout the county with
significant First Pres participation, drives folks to medical appointments
from Port Angeles to Seattle, and assists with errands, shopping and
household tasks. ECHHO's staff
loans hundreds of pieces of medical equipment each year.
