First Church is a faith community that cares for its community. Let’s rally together to support those who care for the rest of us in times of need. Join First Church in showing our healthcare workers and others facing the front lines during this pandemic that we notice them, we care about them, and we stand beside them.
Valentine’s Day cards will be available during the next two Sundays (Jan. 30th and Feb. 6th) for anyone to take home and write a short note of encouragement to a healthcare worker. Return your card(s) on Sunday, February 13th, during worship.
Also, if you are able, please bring in gift cards with small amounts on them, like Dunkin’ cards, for coffee or treats. The Mission Board will deliver our offering to several of the healthcare offices and urgent care, etc. in our community.
On Sunday the 13th we will intentionally set aside time to bless our offering and pray for healthcare workers. Wherever you are, let’s join together in praying this prayer on Feb. 13th:
With grateful hearts, we remember our
healthcare workers. Please look upon
them with Your mercy. Grant them
strength and encouragement as they face
the challenging tasks before them.
Restore them with Your comfort and love.
Allow them to know the gratitude of
those they minister to and provide them
with rest for their bodies and souls.
