Winston Churchill said: “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”
Even in the midst of crisis, we have the opportunity to be good neighbors and be the church.
Our deacons recently met to assess ways that we can care for each other during this time as the church. Below are some of the ways we are working together to meet needs within our church. FBC-H also has a Benevolence Fund, partially funded through the church’s missions budget and also funded through designated gifts, to help us meet urgent needs of those within our church community.
Getting Groceries and Medication
If you need to stay home and need someone else to go out to collect groceries or medication for you, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a team of caring volunteers who can help. We will prioritize the elderly or those with compromised immune systems or other extenuating circumstances.If you would like to join the list of volunteers who are willing to go out to get groceries or medication for folks, please contact us at email@example.com
Cards and Phone Calls
During this time, we have a team of caring volunteers who will be sending cards and making phone calls to our homebound members, those in assisted living facilities, or anyone who needs an encouraging word. If you would like to be a part of this ministry or would like to be a recipient of cards and phone calls, let us know by contacting the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-875-6581.
Please feel free to contact one of our Pastors during this time. Contact the church office (email@example.com or 704-875-6581) to get in touch with a Pastor.
If you feel like it would be important for you to speak to a Counselor for any reason, our Ministry partner, Counseling Center at Charlotte, is providing online help. Contact information can be found on their website www.counselingcenteratcharlotte.com/
