God Cares. Yesterday today and tomorrow

 

 

All over the world folks are doing what they can to support and give comfort in this time of uncertainty.

Everything has changed but God is our constant. 

God will comfort the grieving and give strength to those who are in need

There is hope found through prayer and our continued faith that God will be there for all of us.

 

 

Our church family is amazing when called upon to help.

Some ideas.....
Fill the plastic container outside the parking lot door with food for the food pantry

Drop off cards in the office mail box to be mailed to area nursing homes or our shut-ins.

Put a sign with a word or picture of encouragement in a window or in your yard

Every day at 3PM let's all take a moment to connect spiritually with prayer.

A moment in time each day to pray for those who need God’s comfort and care.

 

Your deacons are available via email or phone. We are committed to help however we can.

The Lord hears when I call to him. There are many who say, “O that we might see some good!”

Lift up the light of thy countenance upon us, O Lord

In peace I will both lie down and sleep.

For thou alone. O  Lord, makest me dwell in safety.

Although we are not usually thinking of collecting items to fill the GOOD SAMARITAN CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES at this time of the year, it actually is a good time.  After-Easter markdowns are starting to take place right now! This is a perfect time to pick up small toys, crafts, coloring books, small stuffed animals, books, etc. for the boxes. 

  

After Valentine Day, I actually found a few items including boxes of Valentine's cards that I'm going to use to make matching card games for ages 2-4 year olds, and memory games for the 5-9 year olds.  You never know where you will find a bargain or something on clearance!  

 

Just a quick reminder, the age groups are: 2-4 year old boys and girls, 5-9 year old boys and girls, and 10-14 year old boys and girls.
