Shield Bearers

A unique ministry to the local law enforcement officers and their families.

Being encouragers is part of our DNA at Life Church. So, when Life Church was formed we began looking for opportunities to share the love of Jesus within our community. It didn’t take us long to become aware that those serving within our law enforcement community often come up short on the appreciation-encouragement scale. We saw this as an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those who serve and protect us all, and Shield Bearers was born.

Shield Bearers is a way for Life Church to provide encouragement and support for the men and women serving within Calvert’s law enforcement community. Some of the ways we show we care are by remembering each of our more than 300 police officers and support personnel on their birthdays, by sharing birthday cards, handwritten notes of encouragement, and gift cards to local restaurants. Shield Bearers has expanded to include our providing gift cards to Walmart when a new baby arrives, as well as get well and sympathy cards.
