Sunday, March 29 at 1:00pm - As the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus has increased, Father's House has worked to help our community in two main areas: meals to kids who depend on school breakfasts and lunches, and making healthcare masks.
Both of these outreaches are great opportunities to stay safe and help others who desperately need it.
1. Volunteer to deliver meals.
2. Donate fabric or funds for masks.
3. Help make masks by either washing and ironing fabric, cutting fabric, or sewing masks.
Contact the church office (which will have a number to call) to volunteer.
FH Kids online was launched this week! The reviews have been super positive about this curriculum that is exciting but meaningful. It's a fantastic tool for parents to lead their children in a lesson at home. We encourage all families to participate!
Our STAND Student Ministry Leaders are planning to launch a way to connect as small groups (via devices) in the next few days. Parents and youth should check the STAND Student Ministry Facebook page to stay current.
We will continue worshipping together exclusively online on Sundays at 10am on all of our church-wide digital platforms such as Facebook and fhbend.church.online. A PreService video will begin at 9:45am each Sunday. Check the FH home page for instructions. Thank you for your patience as our tech team works out a few hiccups each week. They are a dedicated crew who are serving tirelessly to help us all stay connected, grow in Christ, and unite at least once a week corporately, even online!
Saturday, March 21 at 12:50pm - First of all, thank you for your prayers, patience, and flexibility. Needless to say, it's an incredible time in all of our lives, and we're doing the best we can to help Father's House not only stay healthy and safe, but also to be the hand of Christ extended to our community.
Therefore, until further notice, we are one church in hundreds of locations, connected together online. What that means is, while all of our in-person gatherings have been canceled for the time being, we are still united in worshipping, serving, and spreading the message of hope we have in Jesus—just in a new way.
We will continue worshipping together exclusively online on Sundays at 10am on all of our church-wide digital platforms such as Facebook and fhbend.church.online. We are excited to see how God is going to use our online worship experience!
Besides live online weekend worship, we'll be streaming devotions and announcements. All of our FH leaders have expressed their desire to help take care of people during this time of need, whether that's with staying in contact with you, hosting online Bible studies, prayer, or delivering food, we're here for you.
We will also be adding a webpage for our FH Kids to watch and get some connection!
We also understand that many people are hurting right now due to the disruptions caused by coronavirus. We will endeavor to step in wherever and whenever we can. If you would like to volunteer to help, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or send a message via FB.
You can also serve those closest to you in more direct ways. Whether it be checking on elderly neighbors, caring for the children of friends who are unable to work from home, or bringing groceries to someone unable to leave their home during this time--we've even heard of people sitting on their porch talking with other neighbors on their porch! We encourage you to share the love of Jesus by helping others.
Much has changed at a fast pace, but we know one very important thing that hasn’t changed: the faithfulness of God. For updates, please stay connected to our social media platforms as well as our website.
