The focus of Shamar ministry is to celebrate God as an amazing Creator and reach people for Christ who love creation but do not know God as creator and Lord.

We can serve and honor God by being good stewards of what He has made.  The Bible is clear about God’s care for his creation and all creation sings His praises (Psalm 145:9, Psalm 148).  Everything in all creation belongs to the Lord (Psalm 95:4-5).

To serve the Lord by being good stewards of His creation, we have created Shamar, a creation stewardship ministry.  Shamar is a Hebrew word that means “to keep, guard, observe, sustain, give heed”.

For example, this ministry maintains recycling programs at the church, organizes clean-up events in the community and surrounding natural areas, shares God’s love with others who love His creation but do not know Him, conducts educational programs about God’s creation, partners with local animals rescues, and so much more.

If God has gifted you with a passion for nature, animals, and people we would love for you to be a part of this ministry.  If you are interested in joining our group, please contact  We are very excited about what God is doing through this ministry at South Hills!
