“The Role of the Church in the Time of Coronavirus”
In this tragic time of this pandemic, what is your church doing to reach out to and serve the orphan, the poor, the homeless, the elderly, the incarcerated, and those who have been infected with the COVID-19?
A lot of children just became orphans and homeless as a result of losing their parents to the coronavirus.
A lot of unemployed mothers just lost their husbands–their only source of income in the family–and became single unemployed moms due to the COVID-19.
Many-stay-at-home moms, who were financially dependent on their working husbands to make it in life, just lost their hubbies, due to this pandemic.
Many grandsons and granddaughters just lost their grandparents, who provided them with a home and daily nutrition, to this pandemic.
Many elderly just lost their spouses, close companions, or life partners, and suddenly, they became lonely and are now having a difficult time to adapt and transition through this new life–as a result of this deadly disease.
Children of undocumented parents, who were their only source providers, just lost their undocumented mom or dad, or both, to the coronavirus nightmare.
Adopted adolescent sons and daughters just lost their adoptive parents to this disaster.
What is your church doing to
serve these individuals and reach out to this vulnerable population in your city?
What is God calling you to do to attend to the needs of these individuals and families in your community?
