Opportunities to Serve Others

1. Support Our Vulnerable Populations

If possible donate to charities. Meals, food hampers and safe spaces are desperately needed by those most vulnerable to COVID-19.
“Speak up for those who have no voice, for the justice of all who are dispossessed. Speak up, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the oppressed and needy.” Proverbs‬ ‭31:8-9‬ ‭CSB‬‬

2. Help Your Neighbours

Let neighbours know that you are willing to help if they are quarantined. “The second is, Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other command greater than these.””  Is ‬‬Mark‬ ‭12:31‬ ‭CSB‬‬

3. Use Tech To Connect

Be intentional about phoning, video calling or texting with someone that is quarantined or feeling isolated by canceled social events. Plan to play games, or eat meals together through Facetime, Zoom, Skype or some other app.
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up as you are already doing.” ‬‬1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:11‬ ‭CSB‬‬

4. Let People Know

You might be feeling anxious or are isolated by these circumstances. By letting people know that they can help you, you are creating a more open and honest community that brings hope.
“Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love — but the greatest of these is love.” ‬‬1 Corinthians‬ ‭13:13‬ ‭CSB‬‬

5. Be Courteous and Respectful

Keep washing your hands, keep physical distancing and listening to health authorities. If not for yourself, for the sake of others in the community with depleted immune systems or at risk of getting sick.
“Everyone should look not to his own interests, but rather to the interests of others.” ‬‬Philippians‬ ‭2:4‬ ‭CSB‬‬
