Do all the good you can,

By all the means you can,

In all the ways you can,

In all the places you can,

At all the times you can,

To all the people you can,

As long as ever you can.         (John Wesley)


A woman called me today. She recently experienced a stroke and has yet to recover.  She wants to return to work but has not been given medical clearance. She has been a caregiver all her life.  Our volunteers at Caritas paid part of her water bill so that her water would not be shut off. They gave her my number because her electricity would also be turned off. Through the church’s Benevolence Fund, I covered her electric bill. She was very grateful for the assistance the church could give because of your generosity. We could not solve all her problems, but through the listening ears of volunteers and your gifts, she knows our church cares.

Thank you for the good you do every day and for your generosity.  Our church is known in our community for helping the down and out, a witness to God’s love and mercy.
