Many of you have asked what we are doing during this time to love on our community and give folks the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus! Every need in the world is an open door to share God's love. That's why, as a church family, we're responding to the COVID-19 crisis, not by panicking or hiding out of fear, but by serving the people who are most vulnerable.

Thank you for donating your time to making masks that folks can wear in our worship services, and also around town. If you’re interested in making masks, stop by the pickup/drop-off area, located outside the Fellowship Hall awning. There you'll find designated kits with mask materials that you can assemble. You’re welcome to write your favorite scripture or an encouraging word to whoever may receive the mask.  

Whats Included:

• 5 masks 
• All mask materials needed for assembly, except thread

• Instructions on assembly (15 min duration time)  
• 5 bags for each individual mask

When you’ve completed all five masks, please return to the same pickup/drop-off location. If you have any questions please email Becky Johnson

Salvation Army 
The Coronavirus pandemic has presented us with new challenges and opportunities.

Suggested Items:
Canned Vegetables: green beans, corn, peas, baked beans (#10 cans if possible).
Paper towels, napkins, paper plates, to-go containers, plastic ware.
Other: pasta, mac and cheese, coffee, and cereal.


In addition to their food needs, the Salvation Army offers many other ways to serve. If you are interested in learning more about serving with the Salvation Army, please contact Bob Landham, Missions Pastor.



Inmate Notecards Pick Up/Drop Off
We are making an all out effort to encourage inmates during a time when they are on lock-down with no visits from families, no mentoring, and no Bible studies allowed.  One of the primary ways to encourage them which also serves as a reminder that they are significant and thought about regularly is to send a short note to them. Notecards, with instructions and a sample card, can be picked up & dropped off at New Vision. 


College Student Notecards & Food Pick Up/Drop Off
There are 1000+ students who are still living on campus. Food options are limited, so we want to fill the gaps where we can! Writing a card or donating a snack is a great way to love on a local college kid! Notecards, with instructions and a sample card, can be picked up & dropped off at New Vision. 

Suggested Items:
Pre-packaged snacks; chips, granola bars, fruit snacks, peanut butter crackers, trail mix, etc.
 

ALL DROP OFF INFORMATION 
Pickup and drop off location for all donations is located outside the Fellowship Hall awning, Monday-Friday 8:00-5:00 PM. Food is picked up daily.

WE WILL DELIVER TO YOUR HOME
