“And behold, I am with you always…” -Matthew 28:20

In the very first Chapter of Matthew, Jesus is introduced as Emmanuel (which means, God with us).  In the very last Chapter, Christ promised to be with us until the end of the age.

Even when we’re quarantined, we’re not alone.  We invite you to experience God’s presence, guidance, and provision with us during this challenging season.

Local & Urban Engagement

During times of crises many of us want to know what we can do to help and demonstrate, in tangible ways, the love and character of Jesus Christ and His church.  We've compiled a brief list of ideas.  Be wise and pray diligently as you discern how God would have you be part of bringing health in this season.
  • Check on elderly neighbors- See if you can pick anything up for them
  • Use Social Media to do good- Be intentional.Simply ask questions like, "How are you?   What do you need today?"  Check out the Next Door social media app to see about needs in your immediate area
  • Care for kids in need- Offer childcare for health professionals or hourly workers who may not be able to afford to stay home with their kids and who may need to work
  • Make Masks and other PPE- do you have access to appropriate materials and equipment to sew needed masks for clinics?
  • Donate Personal Protective Equipment- Do you or your workplace have extra personal protective equipment (new N95 masks, disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer (70% alcohol), goggles, disposable gloves, and gowns) you can donate to healthcare providers? Consider donating to Covenant Living who is requesting these items and helps care for senior adults in Golden Valley. Contact Heather Bell if you can help (hrbell@covliving.org, 763.732.1504)
  • Donate Books- As you clean house, collect books to donate to Global Academy, a K-8th grade charter school that serves a diverse population in New Brighton
  • Give Generously to Non-Profits- Be faithful with your existing commitments to financially contribute and help others, give generously to non-profits that are helping with the situation
