Shepherd's Report for February:
While we probably look back on February with a focus on our long, cold winter, we also need to remember that our opportunities to enjoy the warm fellowship of a church family only increased. Family Factory cranked up again at the beginning of the month, which gave a lot of our folks a reason to scurry about preparing, practicing, and participating in a wonderful program that our children all love. We also had another opportunity to give blood at a blood drive, and we are grateful for all who helped make it another successful sharing endeavor. We want to commend all our members for rallying around our families who lost loved ones during this winter period. Many lovingly supported and embraced our sister Pat in the loss of her husband Larry, and that same love was given to John and Steven, and all the Rone family in the loss of our beloved sister Katherine. If there were no other reason to be part of a strong and loving church family than to simply have that support system in times of trouble—it would be enough, but we know it involves so much more.
One word of caution and advice. We don’t want to let anything or anyone rob us of our spirit of compassion and our willingness to help, BUT the truth is—there are a lot of con artists who make a living tricking churches into giving them money. We get regular requests for financial help from people who “hit up” multiple churches. Along with help and guidance from the Shepherds, our brother Josh McCutchen has been our contact person to sort through the task of deciding who we can and should help. We are trying to limit such help to food & clothing. If you are ever approached by someone, while at the building, who asks for financial help, PLEASE DIRECT THEM TO CALL THE OFFICE DURING OFFICE HOURS. Our recommendation would be to not give them money. Many purposely come at times when they can catch members without leaders around. When possible, keep all outside doors locked while you are here.
