At Shiloh, we take the charge to touch those around us seriously. We have a desire to take what we have been given beyond the four walls of the Church. The Lord has placed us in this community to meet the needs of the people around us. Whether it is reaching out to those who have availed themselves of our Mercy Ministries, or whether it is speaking into the lives of the leaders of the city, Shiloh is here to care for the community. With countless programs, from tutoring children after school, to ministering to those in neighborhood convalescent homes, to prison ministries, to speaking into the local public schools, to reaching out to the needs of the police, there is always something Shiloh is doing with the community.
Shiloh Mercy House provides food to residents in our community 5 days a week, Monday – Friday. Community organization which provides groceries to low-income and homeless families in collaboration with the Alameda County Community Food Bank, and Social Services.
