Children in Need of Foster Homes
I was contacted by a local Court Appointed Guardian ad litem regarding some local children in need of foster homes. 

There are two pressing needs:
- a family of three older children, a boy and two girls, ages 15, 13, and 11
- a 3 year old girl with Down's Syndrome and possibly her brother

Please prayerfully consider if you feel called to be a foster family or if there is someone you know in the community who may be interested. 
Contact me if you'd like more information or if you'd like the contact information for the Guardian ad litem.

Pastor Lisa's Pandemic Schedule

Work Days: Tuesday-Sunday
Day Off: Monday
Filming Day: Friday

Please contact me any day, any time if you have an emergency. Otherwise, please respect my day off. You can leave a voicemail or email, and I will respond to you on Tuesday. On Fridays, my phone is on airplane mode most of the day as I film, but I do check it regularly, so leave me a message, and I'll get back to you.

Over the course of the week, if you are in need of comfort and worship, "visit" some of the other Alaskan United Methodist churches to watch their worship services. Click here to see the list of churches offering online worship.
