The Valley Creek Baptist Church's Mission Team has formed a Special Response Team to help meet the needs of community members who may need groceries or other necessities during this time. We want to show the love of Jesus, share the good news of Jesus, and love our neighbors well during this time. Special Response Team members are being trained on guidelines and procedures that will protect them and those we are serving. Here’s how you can help at this time:
If you or someone you know is unable to get out and need help getting necessities like groceries, call the church office at (270) 737-9282 during regular office hours. After office hours, call Mike Hulsey at (270) 737-6535. When you call, we will need the name, address, phone number, and need of those who need assistance.
Keep checking in with those who are most at risk due to age or other risk factors. Some may have physical needs we can meet, but many will be encouraged to hear from a familiar voice.
Pray for the members of the Special Response Team and those who will be served.
As needs come in, each need will be matched with one of our team members who will go to the door of the home, pick up a list of needs and money to pay for those needs, and then return with those supplies. Again, those team members are being trained on ways to protect themselves and those we are serving. If you would like to be a part of this team as needs increase, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
