the sheepfold

Here at Edgewater Lutheran, we are pleased to give back to the community and to be able to help support this wonderful cause. Read more about Sheepfold below. We are grateful to be able to provide for the women and families of Sheepfold once again this year with our Gift Giving Drive. If you would like to donate a gift, please contact Lisa Bazan (909) 240-0333 or Janey Krall (909)262-3563 to be matched with a gift to purchase and delivered to a family in need. You can also purchase from Amazon (use to further support Edgewater) and have the gift sent directly. Gifts will be collected until December 6th.  Contact Lisa or Janey with any further questions. God Bless!

The Sheepfold is beginning its 40th year of service to women and children in desperate circumstances. We are committed to the salvation of every soul that comes under the shelter and protection of The Sheepfold, so that the love, joy, peace and hope of the gospel becomes available to them. Our Founder, Fran Lundquist’s daily Bible studies ensure the ladies receive the Good News every day.


Please accept our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have done so much for this ministry over the past 40 years. You are truly doers of the Word not just hearers only. When Jesus says on that final judgement day, “did you feed the hungry, did you give drink to the thirsty, did you clothe the naked and take in the stranger?” you will be able to answer, “Yes.”


As always, we count on your prayers for leadership and direction for the ministry. I pray the Lord will bless you and those you love.


Let us enter this year with praise for what God has done and faith for what He will do in 2019.


Blessings,  John – President/Executive Director, The Sheepfold


We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, and that we should walk in them.

Denise’s Story


The First Sheepfold Shelter


Over 18 years ago I was a baby Christian in a very violent relationship, and I didn’t know what to do. God was moving on my soul to leave the abuse, so that my beautiful daughter would be safe. A lady from my church took me to the Sheepfold and for the first time in my Christian life I felt very loved and cared for.


My daughter and I stayed in the original house. Miss Inez and Miss Mandy took such beautiful care of us. After 6 months we moved to Northern California. I went to college, and I have always told people how wonderful Sheepfold was to us.


Today my daughter is 22, healthy, happy, and on her own. I am single and work in the medical field as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).


I love you all so much and am forever thankful. God bless you all!!!
