Community Cares and Community 4:12 have been united under one umbrella.

1. Join a COMMUNITY Cares team

While this time of social distancing can be overwhelming, let us not forget to do good and share with others (Heb 13:16). Click below for a list of opportunities to serve those in need. From praying to running errands, there is a Community Cares mobilizing team for you to contribute on. As you serve your community, spread the word by sharing photos and stories with #CommunityCares.

2. B.L.E.S.S. your community

Begin with prayer
Pray for your neighbors. Refer to
BlessEveryHome.com and go on a prayer walk through your neighborhood.

Listen
Since you can’t go out and talk to people, utilize the news and social media. Ask, “What do you need?” in facebook groups, the nextdoor app, the patch, etc. and listen to needs mentioned in your local news.

Eat
Provide food via a food delivery app.

Serve
Social distancing regulations means we can serve others in creative ways: Write a thank you note to your local grocer, first responders, etc., share toilet paper or other supplies with your neighbors, call someone who may be lonely, buy groceries for your neighbor who can’t leave, invite people to join an online service & daily devotional, etc.

Story
Let’s commit to sharing some good news! Use #BeTheChurch to share pictures and stories of acts of love and service.

Let us carry each other’s burdens. Let us serve the vulnerable, the lonely and the sick. Let us #BeTheChurch.
