We have now just passed 5 months since we have started living in ways that are meant to slow a pandemic. We have stayed at home, we have worn masks, we have stayed at least 6 feet apart from people that we don’t live with. If someone had told me a year ago that this is 2020 would look like, I most certainly would not have believed them. what
As we lean into the Fall of this strange year we’ll be looking at ways we can reach out to continue caring for one another in the midst of a pandemic. Our Christian Caregivers program has long been one that includes visiting the homebound and hospitalized, writing notes, and making calls. In this time the pastors and caregivers have not been able to make visits to homes or hospitals, this has been hard for all involved as people do indeed crave community and contact. We are currently exploring the possibility of “front porch visits” for our homebound members, continuing with calls and notes, and gathering together online.
If you would like to learn more about ways that you can stay connected to our congregation through different ways of offering care we will be having a Zoom meeting on Tuesday, September 8, from 7 – 8 pm. For more information and the Zoom link please send an email to Pastor Carrie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
