I'm thankful to see love in action during the difficulties caused by the winter storm. Hear more about how we're helping each other and how neighbors are helping neighbors. If there’s a way we can help you, please keep reading below.

We look forward to worshipping with you Sunday at 10:30 am from the Windsor campus and at 5 pm from the Hill on our website or Facebook pages.


WARMING CENTER
We are pleased to offer the Parish Life Center at the Windsor campus today from 2:30pm to 5:30pm and the church building at the Hill today from 2:00pm to 6:30pm for you to warm up and charge your devices. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing while you are on campus. For information on warming centers in the Austin area, please click here.
ADDITIONAL NEEDS
We understand that many in our parish family need help meeting their basic needs due to power outages and water shortages. In moments like these, we remember how interdependent we all are. We depend on the help and support of others. Should you find yourself in a difficult situation and have a specific need (firewood, food, transportation), please email me directly at channing@gsaustin.org, and I will do my best to help.

I encourage you to check in with those in your Shepherd Circle as well as with those around you. Now more than ever, our Shepherd Circles can serve as points of connection as we navigate this disaster.

We chose our theme for Lent weeks ago: "On your mark, get set, GO." The GO refers to going out and helping others after our prolonged time in a pandemic-induced quarantine and period of self-reflection. This series of winter storms offers us an opportunity to help others and GO. Please consider what you can do if you are in a position to help.

If you’re able, please fill up water bottles and make sure you have an adequate supply of water. Please help to conserve water and look for news of boiled water notices - including the boil water notice currently in effect for Austin.You can find more about Austin's water here.

LENTEN MEDIATION BOOKLET
As we begin Lent, we have a wonderful meditation booklet with daily meditations written by your fellow parishioners. For a copy, please click here. When the roads are safe again, you can pick up a copy outside the Administration Building on the Windsor campus. Thank you to all who contributed to this resource, especially Holly Noelke and Grayson Cecil.
