Loads of Love - April 4th - Still Happening!
This event serves those with continuing and possibly expanded needs for additional support at this time. For this event:
• We will bag the items to be provided for each family. There will be as many bags as we have items for (target is around 100). Each bag to contain: 4 pack of toilet paper, one roll of paper towels, one tube of toothpaste, enough toothbrushes for each family member, one deodorant, one bar of soap, shampoo/conditioner combination, and one laundry soap. There is a limited number of diapers, wipes, and feminine hygiene products on hand as well.
• We will hand a bag to people in their car (not in the church building)
• We will track of the number of participants, families, and number in each family that we are serving
Items for this event were ordered before March 15th.
God Sighting
Julie Concannon had been working on making 100 handmade soap bags for Loads of Love. She had already purchased 100 bars of soap and wanted to know if we could still use them for Loads of Love in light of the ever-changing situation. Paula Foster and Kathy Christiansen were both so excited to hear this. They hadn't ordered bars of soap yet and loved the personal touch this would add to the bags.
This was their God-sighting and was needed now more than ever for people. Thanks Julie!

Prayer Updates
Peg Murphy( for Janet Guthrie)-Thanks everyone for your prayers while Janet was in the hospital on Monday-Wednesday receiving treatments and says they helped everyone get through the last few days, and are so thankful! All went okay, and Janet and Ed are now safely back in their assisted living apartment. 

Alexis Hronek (Allison Vandeventer's daughter) had new ear tubes put into place and adenoids taken out on Wednesday. That afternoon, Children's Hospital stopped doing elective surgeries like this. With this in place, it would have been months before they could get it done. The family is so thankful she was able to get in and get it done now.

How are you and your family doing?
This is a stressful time for everyone. Even as we are kept apart by social distancing, it is important that we keep connecting with and praying for each other. We lift up all of our members and neighbors in prayer for safety and health. May God's peace be with us all.
