How Can I Help?
Many of you have reached out to offer your help over the last few days! It is awesome to see God’s Church stand up and be the Church during times of crises. Below are a few ways that you and your family can help to encourage others during this time.
- Check on one another. Use this time to reach out to our senior adults, to those in your Bible Study Groups, to your neighbors, and to your co-workers. Call or text them. Ask them if you can help them. And ask how you can pray for them and then pray with them on the phone.
- Pray for one another. You can view our prayer list at anytime at www.libertypark.org/prayer, (Password: pray). Take a few moments to read through and pray for each of the requests listed. If you are with your family, gather your family together and pray through the list.
- Let’s make checking the mail fun again. Send someone a handwritten note or a card. Use your downtime to write someone an encouraging note. Ask your kids to make homemade cards to send to someone. Our homebound folks would love to hear from you and your family! If you need addresses and names, Carol will be happy to send them to you. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Consider contributing to the Benevolence Fund. No one knows how long this crisis will last and we do expect it to financially impact individuals and families in our congregation. If you feel led to help financially, please contribute to the Benevolence Fund now, so that the monies are available when needed. To contribute, go to www.libertypark.org/give. Be sure to select the “Benevolence” Fund when making your contribution.
2 Chronicles 7:13-14 reads as follows: “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." During this pandemic, Pastor Randy is challenging us to become people of prayer. Let’s each humble ourselves and seek God’s face through prayer at 7:14 (am and/or pm) each day. In the coming days, we will provide prayer prompts on our social media accounts
