I Need Help!

We will have supper on Wednesday that includes pork loin, green beans, mashed potatoes, and homemade bread. You may drive up to the atrium door between 5-5:30pm, and we will deliver the meals to your car window. Please call the church office and we will make sure to have your hot-and-ready meal when you arrive. We will also deliver meals on Wednesday, so if you are in need of meal, call the church office and we will deliver.

Our staff is still working to visit and help shut-ins. Please contact the church office if you need help with grocery shopping, etc.

How Can You Help?

Pray. Pray for your neighbors, your church leaders, your government leaders, your community medical and emergency workers, and everyone who is finding and adjusting to a new normal.

Check on your elderly neighbors and ask if they need anything. Reach out to folks over text and phone calls. People can feel isolated in these situations, and it is important for all of us to remain in community together.

Our church delivered BBQ to local fire stations on Monday. We are so thankful for all our community emergency and medial personnel!

Please call the church office if you are willing to help us reach out to our congregation and community.
