“So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.”
Galatians 6:9-10 (The Message)
As we move more deeply into this pandemic time of separation, we are also aware of the vital and even vibrant ways we are connected.
As church, we continue to care for and pray for one another.
In addition, we have a Parish Aid fund that is available to help as some families’ resources are stretched extremely thin. With deep gratitude to our congregational leadership, who have made these funds a priority, we can help one another through this storm. Please know that if you need help with a medical bill, a utility bill, with food or medication, or another expense that you cannot meet just now, your church community would like to support you. Contact any pastor and let us know of your need. We are here for one another. Also, if you need to adjust your pledged giving to the church at this time, please contact a pastor or send a note to Kyna Shilling, our Director of Finance and Operations.
We continue to support one another in other ways as well. Perhaps there is someone in the congregation who has come to mind for you. Reach out, make a phone call, see how that person is doing. Pray for the people who used to sit in your pew on Sundays. Send a card to someone in the church you would like to know better. Take the initiative to say thank you to someone you serve with
on a committee or work in a ministry. Let’s keep weaving the web of community that can sustain us through this time.
For all that you do, we are grateful. For the support you need, we are here. For the grace of God that sustains us all, we give thanks. You are in our prayers.
