GOD’S WORD TODAY

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.  2 Corinthians 4:18

WE WANT TO SUPPORT YOUR IDEAS!

FirstCov’s “Love Your Neighbor” Project

Let’s unleash the Holy Spirit to work in us with a missional imagination! We want to support YOUR idea that might serve a neighbor, someone in the community, or a group in the community. What can that look like?

  • Maybe you’ve had an idea to serve your neighbor next door or a group that’s in need but you’ve lacked money for it.
  • You wanted to make a meal for someone but you don’t have money for extra food.
  • Know a person, couple, or family that would be blessed with a gift certificate from Papa Murphy’s or Mariachi Loco. (Remember those who are serving in medical areas, grocery stores, etc., too!)
  • Could be a larger project that provides something like masks for medical personnel.
  • Bring snacks (or buy a meal out) for our medical personnel.
  • …any other engagements of neighbor and community that serve and love them in this time.

 How to apply? Send a note to office@rfcov.org with a short description of the idea, who it helps, and what amount you need. We want to prayerfully support as many of these as we can. And we’d love to hear how it goes!
