Opportunities to Love and Engage Our Neighbors—We want to continue to provide healthy and appropriate opportunities to love and engage our neighbors. Social distancing is important, of course, and we want to abide by the protocols being encouraged from local officials. If you’re able and willing, the wording of the “Safer in Homes” order still lends us the provision to serve the vulnerable and those in need. As much as ever, we desire to be Christians who embrace the least of these. Here are a few opportunities for you to consider.
Be Well is a home-based health and wellness program that will engage, motivate, and educate everyone on best health and wellness practices during our time of crisis. Churches across the globe can use it to reach, communicate, and connect with their members during the (COVID-19) pandemic. By taking advantage of this program, we can effectively minimize the stress, fear, and health degeneration brought about by the mass quarantine. Email Jeffery Johnson with questions or subscribe here.
Summer Refreshments — We still hope to offer Summer Refreshments this summer. This could be a Bible Study, book discussion, topical study, or creative instruction for men, women, or coed. If you are interested in leading a group, please contact Sharon Mrok by Monday, April 13. If we are not able to meet in person, we are hoping to offer some classes online.

(Postponed until after Easter; possibly moved until summer) Canvas Art Class With our art program, we walk participants through a six-week drawing and painting series that focuses on our relationship with God.

Preschool "Helping Hands," Sunday mornings. Our biggest need requires NO preparation; we simply need “helping hands” to help our 3–5-year-old preschoolers stay engaged in the lesson and run the activity centers that our leaders have planned. Ideally, helpers would serve every other week, in order to build relationships with the children, but we would also welcome helpers to serve once a month. We'd love for you to join our team! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 682-8452.
Nursery, Sundays, 10:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m. We need people to rock babies during the Worship Service. We'd love for you to join our team! Please email email@example.com or call us at 682-8452.
