WE WANT TO HELP YOU
If you are in critical need during this time, we want to be able to assist you in any way that we can. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our staff will determine the best way that we can support you.
Maybe you are good on supplies but have prayer needs. Email us at email@example.com to request prayer for yourself or others.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
The CDC also provides guidelines for protecting yourself. You can find those steps at https://www.cdc.gov. We are asking that you wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer when handwashing is not readily available. If you are not feeling well, have flu-like symptoms, or have been in the presence of someone who is ill, please stay home.
WHAT TO DO IN THE DAYS AHEAD
Times of trial and uncertainty are opportunities for the church to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Practice being a good neighbor. If you live next door or in close proximity to someone who is sick or in a high-risk group, ask what you can do to help. It could be as simple as running an errand or dropping of some food.
In the days to come there will be opportunities as a church to help others locally, nationally, and to the ends of the earth. As always, your tithes and offerings are critical to being able to meet the needs of a hurting world. If you can, please continue to give using the link below. You can also give by sending your tithe to us in the mail at: PO Box 2005, Marshall, TX 75671. With confidence and joy, let us continue to be the church and a light during this time.
