Being the Church

During a time when we are unable to meet as a church body, we can still be the church to those around us. Below are some practical ways to support vital needs in our communities. And, we can all serve in the most important way possible, pray! 

Pray for your church family, pray for your neighbors, and pray for our leaders.

  • American Red cross

    Due to numerous blood drive cancellations due to school and other closures, we are facing a severe blood shortage. The Red Cross has enhanced its safety protocols to maintain social distancing and ensure safe blood donation. If you are able, please consider giving in this way.

  • face masks

    Certain facilities are requesting cotton face masks for protection. Friendship Village in Dublin could use at least 10 of these washable cotton masks, as their supplies of disposable masks are running low.

    JoAnn Fabrics on Sawmill Rd was providing free supply kits for these, though you may wish to call ahead to make sure they're still available. Sewing instructions can be found here.


    Masks with better filtering capabilities are also needed. Please check out this video made by a doctor and his wife about making masks from HEPA vacuum bags.
