During this time, there are ways to effectively and safely, extend our hands in love to our neighbors in need. Each week, the Chronicle will provide upcoming opportunities and a list of other ways to be involved. If you are looking for ways to be involved, please consider these immediate needs of our community.

Food Distribution – Christ Church
In partnership with Feeding the Gulf Coast, Christ Church will continue to be a food distribution site. Our next two dates will be June 5 and 19. We are looking for a small team of hardworking people who can work in two shifts that day (sorting and distribution). There will be some labor-intensive jobs (i.e., carrying boxes of food) and other jobs (i.e., people filling out forms for each car). While it is outdoors and we take precautions like masks and gloves, please do not volunteer if you are at a high risk of infection or if you are not feeling well.
If you are interested in helping to volunteer with the next effort, please email Honey Harris at Honey@christ-church.net.
Children’s Outreach Opportunity
Christ Church is collecting paper chain links that share messages
of LOVE and HOPE to inspire the world. Our links, and the links of children
around the world, will all be connected for the Guinness Book of World Records,
then distributed to senior centers and hospitals as a beautiful reminder that we are all Linked By Love!
Specific instructions can be found here: https://kidsforpeaceglobal.org/linkedbylove/

Outreach is a great way to keep kids feeling connected and helpful during this time of isolation. Every day, choose someone out of the church directory. Have your child write that person (couple, family) a letter or draw/color them a picture to show them they are loved and remembered. Together, we can teach our little ones that love conquers all, and inspire some smiles as well.
Please follow the link below to make a prayer request. There will also be an opportunity to make prayer requests during our FacebookLive services.
