Lakewood Caring Connections
In this time of social distancing, there are many others even more isolated due to health, loss of loved ones, or those with visitation restrictions. We are asking people of all ages to adopt one of these isolated individuals by writing letters, making cards, or drawing pictures. Mary Katherine Muse and the Flower Ministry Team will provide a name and address to you. If you are interested please email Beth Parnell. This new ministry, Caring Connections, will be meaningful to both the giver and the receiver.
We are collecting new coloring books and any little dollar store items, such as balls, stickers, etc., to make “goodie bags” for children of families picking up food bags from the church.
We are making Manna bags for our homeless community. The items we need are:
bottled water, napkin/cutlery packet, tuna pouch, can meat (ex. Vienna sausage), bag of chips, bag of cookies, granola/fruit bar (soft please), fruit cup, peanut butter or cheese crackers.
Matthew 25:35 Food Pantry
Because of your generosity, the Matthew 25:35 Food Pantry has been able to provide so many families with food during the Corona pandemic. The pantry is still in need of a few items: canned fruit, jelly (not peanut butter), cans of chili, and cans of tomato sauce.

Be In Prayer
Prayer is a powerful tool that God has given us to fight fear and confusion.
"He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him." (Psalm 91:15)
