COVID-19 Ministry Response
Are you able to serve those who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic? Do you personally have a need due to the crisis? If so, contact our Lead Pastor, George Jensen, who will be the point person for our ministry response to the COVID-19 crisis. Let's REALLY be a body of believers in the style of the Acts 2 church who "shared everything they had." God's people who are healthy enough to serve may be called upon to check on others and run errands, shop for groceries or get medicine for those in need. If you can help or if you need help call Pastor Jensen on his cell phone at 717-580-7390. Watch for more information to come regarding how we as a church can respond in MINISTRY (one of the five purposes of our church) to this crisis.
OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE AVAILABLE NOW:
FROM OUR CHILDREN'S MINISTRY DIRECTOR - HEY KIDS! LET'S MAKE CARDS FOR NURSING HOME RESIDENTS - (Posted 3/27/2020)
Hey guys! It’s Taylor here from Enola First Church of God. I wanted to pop on here and say hi to everyone and let you know about a box that I am putting outside here at the church. I think it would be really cool if we make some cards to send to the nursing homes to help cheer people up and bring a smile to their face. Since their families aren’t able to see them during this time I think it would bring a smile to their face to know people are praying for them and thinking of them.
This box will be outside of the church (upper level) starting Saturday, March 28 until next Friday, April 3. I will be coming throughout the week to collect them and send them to different nursing homes. If you don’t feel comfortable coming to drop them off then reach out to me and I can send you addresses of some nursing homes. I pray you all stay safe and pray to see you all soon! Blessings!
WANNA MAKE FACE MASKS FOR THE LOCAL MEDICAL COMMUNITY? - (Posted 3/26/2020)
As many of you know, the medical community is in need of face masks. ECOG's very own Diana Bridges is working in connection with a local group here in our area to make face masks. If any of you have been blessed by God with the ability to sew, making face masks is a great way to serve that you may want to consider. According to Diana, she works at home alone with her sewing machine (not with a group - that's not advisable at this point). The masks she makes consist of material, an elastic band and a piece of a furnace filter. All masks are then bagged in Ziploc bags and transported to local drop off points. If God has blessed you with the talent of sewing and you would like to serve in this manner, please contact Diana. If you need her phone number, look in the church directory or contact Pastor Jensen (for her privacy, we will not give out her number in public). Please direct all questions to her - the staff and leadership are not knowledgeable enough in this area to answer your questions but Diana definitely is. Thank you and many blessings to all who are serving people and our Lord in creative ways like this!
