I don’t know about you, but when this all hit I felt a bit paralyzed. How was I going to lead the Care team in loving our church family when we aren’t supposed to see each other?
After a few days of letting everything sink in, we jumped back in to business as usual, just with some moderations. We are still busy sending cards, flowers, baby baskets and meals, just from the safety of our homes!
Last weekend, we decided to bless some of the older crowd at church by delivering Easter baskets. The baskets contained a devotional book, chocolate of course, some face masks, and supplies for partaking in communion. We were equipped with masks, gloves, and kept our distance. Pastor Glenn also included a note inviting them to call him and take communion together over the phone, if they were not able to join us online!
This is definitely a crazy time of uncertainty, but it’s also a time of new beauty and creativity. I have never felt closer or more bonded to my Care team! People need comfort more than ever, and we are able to comfort them with the comfort we have from Jesus and the encouragement we provide to each other.
If you need anything at all, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are so blessed to get to care for you!
