Now through the end of October, we will put our Grace strategy into action by showing kindness to those often forgotten and isolated in extended quarantine – residents of senior living homes and care facilities. Our goal is to create and send 3,000 cards, pictures, or coloring pages, and we need your help! Invite your family, small group members and neighbors to join in on this special act of kindness. We will collect these care cards at church and deliver them to nearby facilities.
What to do:
- Buy one or 10 cards, or create a card!
2. Write a note of encouragement or scripture. (See suggestions below.)
3. Sign it with your first name.
4. Do not seal your envelope. (We have a special sealing process due to Covid.)
5. Drop the cards into the collection boxes at the Info Tables or church office.
Suggested words of encouragement:
- “You’re on my heart today, you are loved.”
- “You have not been forgotten.”
- “You are cared about deeply.”
- “Today I am remembering you, because you are special!”
- “God loves you and sent His son, Jesus, to show you His love.”
- “Do not fear for God is with you. He will strengthen you today” (Isaiah 41:10).
- “The Lord is your Good Shepherd, and He cares for you” (Psalm 23:1).
