Continuing to Serve in a Pandemic
BE THE CHURCH
The church is not a building. The church is the people and the people can still serve. How can you serve in the midst of a pandemic? See below.
7 WAYS TO SERVE WHILE SOCIAL DISTANCING!
1. Cathedral Kitchen, 1514 Federal Street, Camden, NJ 08105
Cathedral Kitchen serves food to the less fortunate, serving 200-300 meals twice a day.
They accept monetary donations, sandwiches (ham and cheese or peanut butter and jelly) and sample sizes of: soap, deodorant, hand sanitizers, toothpaste, and hand lotions, toothbrushes, disposable razors and new men's socks (tube or crew).
Please deliver donations to the loading dock, Mon-Fri, 10am-2pm, Sat 9-11am and Sun 10am-2pm.
2. Prayer Calls
Join one of the prayer calls. MPC conducts three prayer calls a week:
Tuesday at 8pm
Wednesday at 8pm
Thursday at 5am
PAW’s National Prayer Call is at 1pm daily. Contact Sis. Carter for more information.
3. Go shopping for an elderly person or a single parent
As you are shopping for yourself? Shop for someone who cannot and drop these items off.
4. Cook for an essential worker you might know or purchase lunch for those working in hospitals
You can place the order and have it delivered- never leaving your house) or drop it off
Pray for: those mourning, suffering physically, mentally, financially, out of work, out of school, out of touch with those they love, those you know and those you don’t.
Ask God to help you to pray more while you are home. Write down different groups and pray for them. Write down scriptures so you can pray scriptures for those specific groups as well.
6. Witness by sharing the Word video’s or the Bible study notes
Do this from your social media accounts or via text.
Those who might not come to a physical church service with you, might be willing to listen to a 20 minute sermon or a bible study where they can just listen in the comfort of their own home.
Let us continue to witness and share the Word with all we can. Hope is needed during this time!
7. Make and/or donate masks for those who don’t have any.
