Every need is an opportunity to receive and share God’s love. That’s why, as a church family, we’re responding to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis, not by panicking or hiding out of fear, but by serving the people who are most vulnerable.
No matter how frustrating, confusing, or scary this crisis gets, fear doesn’t have the final say. 1 John 4:18 says, “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” Our hope is built on the perfect love of Jesus Christ, so we’ve been called to share that love with the world. And that’s exactly what we’ll be doing in the coming weeks and months as more and more people in our community are in need.
If you need help, we first want to say that we see you and we care about you! Our goal during this crisis is to serve you however you need. Whether you’re vulnerable, sick, or in need due to school or business closures, we have volunteers and resources ready to serve you. Please email our Pastor, Fr. Roger Bower at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how we can support you during this time.
This crisis is a huge opportunity for you to share God’s love with people in need. Would you be willing to make a phone call once or twice a week to a shut-in? Would you be willing to help with running errands, doing some shopping, praying, even cooking an extra meal and putting in the freezer to share with someone later on? So, please email our parish office at email@example.com to discover how you can volunteer, donate, give, or pray during this time.
