Helping Hands Jan 2014

Psalm 146:6-9a

6 He is the Maker of heaven and earth,
the sea, and everything in them—
he remains faithful forever.
7 He upholds the cause of the oppressed
and gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets prisoners free,
8 the Lord gives sight to the blind,
the Lord lifts up those who are bowed down,
the Lord loves the righteous.
9a The Lord watches over the foreigner
and sustains the fatherless and the widow,

Compassion Baskets & Cards Ministry - The Compassion Baskets and Cards ministry at Church On The Mountain is our way of showing those in our body or those connected to our body that they are not alone in whatever trial they are facing.  It might be the loss of a loved one, a recovery from an illness or surgery, or going through a challenging season in life.  It might also be a celebration time of welcoming a new baby or a marriage.

Whatever the situation, we want people to know we are praying for them and that we are there to support and encourage them in whatever way we can.  The Compassion Baskets and Cards are a small way we can let people know they are remembered.

Helping Hands Meals  - I Cor 12: 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it”. We can honor a suffering part of the body by helping in times of need.  We seek to provide meals for a period of time when one is ill, recovering from surgery, bonding with a newborn baby, mourning, or any situation that calls for a time of rest for a dear saint.
