We have been continuing to rally support around our neighbors who are battling tough times. 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:
Preparing and delivering a meal does count for Community Service!!
Let us Learn Together
We are creating a resource of thoughts, lessons, learned, and advice for future young friends from the present. We have prepared a Google Form 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.
