WHILE WE CAN’T MEET AT CHURCH, WE CAN STILL BE THE CHURCH.
Helping our community and those most vulnerable during COVID-19.
At First Medina, we are dedicated to connecting people to Jesus, helping people grow in their faith and equipping all to Serve. It is times like this when putting our church mission in to action is crucial. There are members of our church family and people in our community that need the hope and love of Jesus right now. Some might just need a friendly conversation. Some might need food or medicine brought to their home. We want to do our best to connect helpers with those who need it most. If you are wondering how you can be a light to those in your community, keep reading for some ways you can help!
HOW ELSE CAN YOU BE THE CHURCH?
- Simply text or call people you know are vulnerable to this virus. Call those you know who struggle with isolation. Ask if there is any way you can help them.
- FaceTime your friends and family! Skip the text when it comes to connecting with your loved ones. While in-person is always better, let’s utilize the technology we have been blessed with to still connect “face-to-face” as we practice social distancing.
- Reach out to local food banks and non-profits and ask if they need help serving those in need.
- Give. God has blessed many of us with margin whether that is financially or with our time. Look for ways to be generous to those around you. Family, friends, your church and neighbors.
- Keep an eye on social media for those who are reaching out for help. If you are on Facebook, you might want to consider joining: People Helping People in Medina.
- Support Local Businesses. With so many in our community hurting due to business closure, we encourage you to support local. Here is a list of restaurants and organizations.
- PRAY. PRAY. PRAY! Pray for God to show you when, where and how to act.
In Psalm 46, we are reminded that it is God who is our refuge and strength, and our ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, let us not fear, but with confidence use this opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus through our prayers and our care for others.
