COVID-19: Help and Be Helped
Missions Update (3/30/20)
Unprecedented times call us again to care for our neighbors, community, and ourselves. In light of COVID-19, we are challenged to truly be the church at the heart of the city, to unite in love, to support the vulnerable, to be resilient forces for good.
Some of the ways we as a church are mobilizing in terms of missions:
We've paired 40 of our members to 400 of our experienced adults for weekly check-ins and groceries.
We are supporting and encouraging 30 of our MD's, RN's, and medical personnel through prayer, notes, and supplies such as goggles and masks.
We are providing more weekend backpacks of lunches than ever for our partner school Lakewood Elementary.
We are making financial contributions to local organizations such as Manna House.
We are working on grants for members who have lost their income due to job loss.
We are praying for our city, our community, our country, and our world.
What You Can Do
If you wish to financially give, donations can be addressed to FBC and marked ‘Community Benevolence.' Or you can do it through the link here. If using the link, in the "Select a Fund" drop-down, choose "Benevolence."
In the midst of social distancing and grocery shortages, we currently aren’t able to gather and volunteer to collect supplies, but you can:
Sew masks for area hospitals. For more information, see below.
Reach out to individuals in your neighborhood who might need help during this time (see below).
Support local businesses.
Routinely check-in on each other.
Often unprecedented days lead to unprecedented levels of anxiety and isolation. Through this storm, let us remember that we are all in this together.
If there are other ways you'd like to see our church contributing in our city or organizations we should support, contact Scott@fbchsv.org
