K-8th Grade Sunday School: Sunday Morning, Small Chapel, 10:15 a.m.

PAWS may also be postponed when a 1st Sunday happens to fall on a 3-day federal holiday or major cultural holiday when human and animal families prefer to celebrate events at home or out of town, such as a Superbowl Sunday.

Blessing of The Animals (BoTA): A long-time tradition of SHPC open to the entire community, our next Blessing of the Animals is slated to take place within the May of 2018 – given that Los Angeles County has recently approved having each single family household be allowed to have as much as four (4) dogs (as long as they get along, are medically cared for, trained, & fed in a timely manner, and are well-behaved, of course!) – as well as to properly celebrate how all out animals companions still loyally stick by use despite the many challenges nature at times poses to us.

All kinds of securely leashed/harnessed/transported animals are welcome, including but not limited to: household pets, service animals, and work animals!

Booth spaces for animal-friendly businesses and non-profits are also available at either free or low cost. Please kindly e-mail info@shadowhillschurch.org or call PH # 818-353-2500 for more details.
