  • I Want to Help

We want to connect needs with resources. If you are in need, know that you are not alone. EVERYONE has experienced times when ends don’t meet and needs assistance. We believe that generosity is active and look forward to walking through the process of restoration with you because life is better together.

We are actively setting up to help those who are adversely affected by Coronavirus (food needs, assistance for shut-ins and elderly, and more).

Do you find yourself worried or afraid?

What we are going through is new and the information flow is overwhelming. The precautions that are being taken to limit the spread of Coronavirus are wise, but all that together can lead us to worry and fear.

Know this, God does not condemn you for it. He is compassionate. He loves and cares about you and everything that you care about!

Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Lean into Him, talk with Him in prayer. Lay your burdens at His feet and leave them there.

Consider writing these verses down and keep them in front of you for encouragement and/or share them with others. Let them wash over you and lead you.

    • “What is the price of two sparrows-one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.” –Matthew 10:29-31 NLT
    • “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:6-8 NLT
    • “For God has not given us (me) a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” –2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV
 

Thank you for your enthusiasm to help people who are adversely affected by Coronavirus. This is a unique opportunity for the Church to shine!

Following are areas to serve that we are actively setting up. As soon as details emerge and we are ready to sign up volunteers, we will communicate them through Planning Center’s Church Center App and our social media channels.

NOTE: In effort to limit exposure to at risk people, volunteers must be at least 18 years old and under 60.



ACCORDING TO THE CDC, HERE ARE SOME STEPS WE CAN ALL TAKE:

  1. If you are high risk, such as older adults and those with underlying chronic medical conditions, avoid crowds as much as possible.
  2. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  3. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  4. Stay home when you are sick.
  5. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  6. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  7. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  8. Practice Social Distancing. No hugs, handshakes or high-fives.

We are trusting God, praying for those who are sick and scared, and working to prevent the spread of this disease. As Christians, we believe prayer has power, so we seek help from the Lord.

Food for School Children

We are actively working with area schools to help them provide food for families in need. This opportunity may include delivering food to schools and/or helping them with distribution.

Help for Elderly

If an elderly person or shut in cannot go in public, we will mobilize our small groups to run to the store and deliver items to someone's door.

Encouragement to Hospital Staff

There is the potential for a small group of people to go to a local hospital to help us cook for the staff. We would prepare a meal and set it in a place where weary hospital workers could get a fresh meal and maybe even some sweets and coffee.

Serve at Prodisee Pantry

Baldwin County’s largest food pantry is right in the middle of all this, as they prepare to assist as many as they can while using the most wisdom as they can. They have specifically asked CityHope to help provide young male volunteers to help build boxes, serve on the parking team, and help distribute food to people as they drive through.

IDEAS:

We’ve created a printable card for you to hand out or place on your neighbors doors. Download it here

Encourage & Pray

Call some of your local financial advisor groups to just offer encouragement/prayer. Many people are carrying anxiety over their finances and these advisors are trying their best to help. Let’s call to just simply offer support for some very weary people at this time.

Pay it Forward and Become an RxAngel. RxAngels is a first of its kind pharmacy program that allows you to “pay it forward” for those in our community who cannot afford their essential monthly medications. https://rxangels.gives

Make homemade hand sanitizer to distribute to neighbors in need and local nursing home residents.

  • 1/3 rubbing alcohol,
  • 1/3 aloe vera gel, 
  • And 1/3 glycerin, if you can find it.
  • Add several drops of the natural antiseptic, tea tree oil. (If you can’t find glycerin, you can make it with 1/2 of first two ingredients and a few extra drops of oil.)

Pray Encourage & Check Needs of the Elderly

Help make phone calls to offer prayer, encouragement, and check on the needs of those that are over 60.

Encourage

Encourage local Grocery Store Employees. Stop by not to shop but just to pray and encourage those working very hard to keep shelves stocked. Give an encouraging letter, some snacks, or just offer prayer (from a safe distance, of course 🙂 )
