Hello, fellow sisters in Christ!
Wow, how our hearts are hearts have been missing all of your lovely faces and presence! We long for the day we can be together again. We, as a church and as a women's ministry, have been working hard to come up with ways to stay connected and be filled. God tells us that His word, being in His presence, fellowship, and serving are all ways that He fills us.
We are so excited to announce an event we feel God has put on our hearts to have fellowship and serve together!
We reached out to the nursing homes in Buffalo because we know they are shut in, meaning no visitors and they can't do the gathering things that they used to do together. We spoke with them, asking how we could give them some encouragement, and they are so thankful and excited that we have been thinking of them.
We are having a women's event to enjoy fellowship and to put together 169 encouragement bundles.
We will be making a handmade gift. Our friends at Our Daily Bread donated 170 Daily Break books, we have work puzzle books, and a family in our church has donated 169 Gideon Bibles. We will also be writing handwritten notes of encouragement for them, and Royal Printing is helping us create cards with envelopes so that the residents can mail out some love and encouragement, and hopefully we'll receive some back as well.
We would love for you to join us in making these encouragement bundles, as well as enjoy some time together.
We encourage you to bring a friend! Maybe you know someone that doesn't know Jesus or doesn't attend a church. This is going to be a great opportunity to get to know Jesus and each other.
The events will be held at our church, outside, on:
Sunday, July 12 from 1 to 3pm and Wednesday, July 15 from 6 to 8pm.
Even if you can't attend either event, please consider writing a note of encouragement. Please drop your notes off at the church no mater than July 8.
Please RSVP by July 8.
