will your church help in your community? Does Your Church Have a kitchen or can you Help in Other ways?
This is a moment during which the CDC and our State Emergency Management are responding to COVID-19. We are planning and working to help to provide for the needs of those who are isolated, sick with the virus, or whose lives have been severely impacted by the closing of schools and businesses.
We are asking you to help us to develop a network of churches across the state to minister to those who are isolated by the coronavirus or whose source of food has been interrupted by the crisis (i.e. Children who receive free meals at schools may have no food while schools are closed. Elderly who are isolated may need someone to drop off food or get a prescription filled and left at the door) . If you have a church kitchen that could be used if needed, or if you could make phone calls to isolated people or if you can help in other ways, please complete the form below.
Name and address of your church.
Church Kitchen Operation Coordinator
Name, cell phone number, and email address of the person from your church who is responsible for the kitchen operation.
Church Liaison for ways that your church can respond to this crisis
The name, cell phone number, and email address for a person at your church who will be a liaison for information related to a variety of ways that your church can respond to this crisis, beyond the feeding mentioned above. Note: You don’t have to have a church kitchen to help respond to the crisis.
This is a preparedness measure. Please do not feel that you are already being asked to provide this service. Like for any other disaster, we are getting ready to respond to CDC and to State Emergency Management, if needed, and are planning as we continue to communicate with them.
Baptists on Mission has created a coronavirus webpage with resources to help churches respond to the crisis, offer hope and encouragement to individuals, educate on how we can prevent the spread of coronavirus, and to provide a daily devotional video. Please encourage your church to refer to this website for ways they can offer relief and hope: http://baptistsonmission.org/Coronavirus
