Community Connection Team
This ministry was formed a number of years ago to look after those in our congregation who were going through illness, surgery, or who might have a special need. In order to help keep in contact with one another, groups are being formed to make phones calls to connect each other in community. This will require about 5 to 7 leaders who are willing to make 4 to 5 calls per week to talk with some of our members and regular attenders in our congregation. This goes above and beyond the amazing work the Care Team is providing during this season.

Making Masks
The city is collecting homemade masks to be used by hospitals and local first responders. The directions are listed on the city website www.cityofgreen.org/588/COVID-19  If you are interested in making masks or if you want to help fund fabric and supplies, please contact the church office.

Food Delivery
The church is beginning work with the city to expand assistance for those feeling uncomfortable going out to shop for groceries. Some have already offered to step forward to help with delivery. If any of you would like to offer your services to getting groceries and delivering them, please notify the church. The other part of this process is also creating a financial base to go ahead and pay for groceries, then give the option to the family requesting grocery delivery to reimburse the church. If you can help finance the shopping project, please send donations to the church or online through Vanco marked Food Delivery. When the system is set up, you will be notified of next steps.

Vacation Bible School
I hope everyone is safe and healthy. No matter what we face in this time of uncertainty, anxiety, and fear, we have to believe and claim God’s promises to each of us. Our VBS will be held August 2nd through August 6th from 6 to 8 PM This years theme is Wilderness Escape and is focused on 5 of those promises that comfort us today: God is with us, so - trust God! God gives us what we need, so - trust God! Give gives us strength, so - trust God! God saves us, so trust God! God guides us, so -trust God! Registration for children 3 years (must be bathroom trained) through those starting 6th grade this fall is now open. Cost is $5. To register your child Click Here
