Bright spots in dark times…
Liz Gokel and Helena Safarova are making masks for friends, neighbors, and medical personnel to use.
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,
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.
