Showing You Care
LONGVIEW, TEX. – Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we did a variety of things to keep in touch with our church members and community family.
Knowing the importance of social distancing, we wrote encouraging messages on poster boards that we could share with our church family from a distance. Someone would knock on the door and then hurry to the curb where the pastoral staff or other church members would hold poster boards with positive words. It was fun to see the smiles and make connections, especially during the quarantine period. We would end by praying for those in the household and surrounding community.
When we heard someone wasn’t feeling well following a motor vehicle accident, we shared some flowers and a note. Appreciating the gesture, the recipient posted a picture, at right, with thanks for the thoughtfulness and for the pastoral family taking the time and effort to deliver them.
It is so important to take the time to show you care.
