Bright Spots

Bright spots in dark times…


Liz Gokel and Helena Safarova are making masks for friends, neighbors, and medical personnel to use.

Dear friends,

protective mask

I am offering free protective masks to everyone who must leave the house. I have been sewing dozens and dozens of masks and delivering or shipping. If you need any, please let me know how many. I am using new, washed and ironed, high density 100% cotton double-ply, with ties around the head and neck or a version that adjusts behind the ears. They fit really well around the face for your protection. Washable in hot water.

Be wise, safe, and healthy.
Peace be with you,
Helena


Arianna & Gianna Preston with their mom did sidewalk/driveway drawings for Kay & Claude Kennard. Kay came to the window with both smiles & tears of joy as she motioned for them to come up close so she could see their faces and blow them all a kiss. Claude said it really brightened her day.


News Channel 5 featured our Laura Leanza Preston out delivering laptops and educational materials to her students’ doorsteps since they have not been in the classroom and she was not able to connect with them.


FBC youth and Shaker High senior, Skyler Hurle, has been in contact with the two group homes that bring clients to church for worship and class. They are now watching our worship services on YouTube. Skyler has also dropped off some craft projects for them to do since they are now in their home 24/7.


The group that visits Calvary once a month to serve meals to the hungry continues its mission to provide food for those in need. Now they are taking extra precautions and providing hot takeout meals for those who need them. They hope you can join them to help at Calvary. If you are not able to attend, no worries. Maybe you’d like to donate a food item. If you have any questions or interest in assisting with this ministry, please contact Tina Marr – through the form on the Calvary page.


We can all reach out to others by phone, especially to our members living alone.

If you hear of FBC members doing something special that warms your heart or if you have ideas of how to help one of our church family please let us know below.

Hugs & Smiles

Missing the hugs and smiles from fellow members? Then share your words of encouragement with us. We are putting together a video to be shared during our worship service. Please send in a picture of yourself or those loved ones with whom you are spending this quarantine time together to Laura Preston by Wednesday, April 29. Photos can include a symbol or item of hope, a pet, a drawing or sign, or simply a wave and a smile. Have fun and get creative. If you know someone who might want to participate but needs a little technical help, please reach out to them. We ask that you follow a few suggestions in submitting your photos:
    1. Landscape view only (hold your phone horizontally please)
    2. Ask someone to take the picture rather than taking a selfie, if possible
    3. Keep your messages short (a word or brief phrase)
    4. Stay close to the camera so we can see you
