“I keep being amazed at the kindness and generosity of this amazing church. They love our widows and are willing to show it by these selfless acts of love” – Michael Kimsey, Executive Director of HopeWorks
In this time of sheltering in place, HopeWorks quickly came to realize that many of their widows had no means to safely buy groceries or complete basic yard work. Beth Spencer, Director of Local Outreach, learned of this need and, within hours, you stepped forward.
You, our wonderful, loving church family have acted as the hands and feet of Christ. You have delivered groceries, mowed lawns, prayed for these widows, and so much more. Workman Meeks baked (from scratch!) a birthday cake and delivered it on Easter Sunday. Brian Ammons came to mow one yard and ended up mowing another for a neighbor in need. Same for Dan Rogers! There are many stories of you going above and beyond the call. You have sought ways to not only meet critical needs, but also to bring joy and encouragement as you serve.
To once again quote Michael Kimsey, “Kindness is not just a word in the dictionary, but it is also a Fruit of the Spirit of God. It shows us that God’s Spirit is at work in our lives. In this group of volunteers [PRUMC], their kindness demonstrates that God’s Spirit is alive and active. Praise God!”
