BE THE CHURCH
OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Every need in the world is an OPEN DOOR to 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. Follow the instructions below (under “Get Help”) to get in touch with us and to let us know how we can serve you!
