Team Compassion

We have been continuing to rally support around our neighbors who are battling cancer.  We have tried to offer what we can as we are able to our littlest superhero and quite a few moms fighting through this battle and caring for their babies.


If you like to cook, or if you would like to offer a meal via a gift card, it would help one of our friends who have more than a load than a person should have to carry.


We have a few Meal Trains with openings:
**Meal Sign Up for a mom within our reach battling pancreatic cancer

**Meal Sign Up for a mom who has been loving on her kids as well as hundreds from our community, all while battling cancer once again

Youth Survey

Let us Learn Together

We are creaing a resource of thoughts, lessons, learned, and advice for future young friends from the present.  We have prepared a Google Doc and ask you to share it with all the young people you can.  This is an anonymous format; no names or emails are collected. We will share the publication when it is completed.  We truly feel it will capture what our young people felt as they moved from "normal" to anything but normal over the past year.  Please encourage your child(ren) to participate.  We know school staff, church youth leaders, and we are all looking forward to learning from the introspective offerings from our young friends.  

Please click here to access the survey and share your thoughts.
