Staying Connected

In the midst of the current crisis, it is imperative that we stay connected to each other and to God. Social distancing does not prevent us from reaching out to our church friends and others who may be feeling particularly isolated for the next several weeks. In addition to live streaming worship services on Good Hope’s Facebook page– Pastor Bob will, on other days, be posting live stream devotions from our Lenten devotional. If you would like a copy of the week’s devotions to come to your email inbox, please call the office or email Karen [email protected] Coloring and puzzle pages can be sent to help your children stay connected too. When times are uncertain, we turn to God. God has promised us that we will never be alone. He will be with us as our strength and our shield. We are His people and he has called us to love on another as he first loved us. Show that love with a phone call to another church member, or offer to grocery shop for someone who is elderly. Share love by sending a card to someone in a nursing home, or through encouraging words on social media. Shepherd of the Valley is partnering with the Help Network and the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) to provide outreach including food and medication delivery, transportation to medical appointments and companionship phone calls, during the COVID-19 crisis. Leah Sakacs of RSVP is manning the phone lines to match seniors’ needs with volunteers. She can be reached at 330-530-4038 ext. 2222. If you need help, please call. If you wish to volunteer, please call. We are the church together
