Foundation News: April 2020
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of trouble. Therefore we will not fear…
Psalm 46:1-2

During this time of uncertainty, the need for God in our lives is essential and as Christians, we need to act as Jesus taught. We need to love and care for others because we understand how much He has done for us and how he calls us to live in this way.

Along with that, we need to continue to support our communities and churches. Churches are playing a central role right now to keep us connected to our faith and will continue to play a big part as we begin to repair and recover. Please pray for your clergy, church staff and their families and continue your financial gifts to support your church.

Together, we continue to pray for all those struggling with this virus, the concerns about the spread, and are especially lifting up all the health care workers and their families during this time of uncertainty.
