During COVID-19, it would have been very easy to hunker down and take a break from the ways we serve our community. And yet, Peace has adapted to these new times and served in ways that meet the needs of our community. I want to thank you for all you have done to walk with our neighbors over the past few months and I encourage you to keep on walking!
Thanks to your donations, we have kept our Little Free Pantry stocked with food over the last few months. We’ll be doing another collection after worship on June 14 from 10-11:30 am. I hope you’ll consider dropping off non-perishable food items and personal care items to help our community. We have also been able to continue our work with the Mobile Tomah Community Table. This coming Monday will be the third time Peace has stepped up to help sponsor the food and volunteer for the food distribution. And just this week, in response to the protesting in Minneapolis and St Paul, we collected $800 and 5 full boxes of diapers, wipes and food for A Mother’s Love Initiative in Minneapolis to help those challenged by this time.
As we live in this time of unrest, the ways we respond with love matter. I hope we can continue to do this work of walking with Christ as we walk with our neighbors. Thanks for joining in this work!
God’s love and peace,
