Dear Yardley UMC Members and Friends,
Church staff, leaders and members are staying connected with the community and each other during this crisis. Below are just a few things we are doing...
-We did a food drive for Anchor House in Trenton, which provides multiple services, including residential shelter for teens and young adults in crisis.
-We're staying in touch with members by phone.
-We post birthday yard signs on youth lawns.
-We put teddy bears and stuffed animals in the church windows and invited the neighborhood families to come "find" them.
-Our church parking lot has become a safe place for neighborhood families to play volleyball, ride bikes and play basketball. They've never spent much time there in the past, and I think it will create a connection even after COVID.
-We do youth group and young adult hangouts via ZOOM every week.
-Our children meet for lunch via ZOOM on Wednesdays. They receive Sunday School activities and devos each week.
-We are doing Pub Theology via ZOOM, and just started holding all-church ZOOM hangout times twice as week.
-The Music Ministry does a ZOOM chat during their regular rehearsal time on Wednesdays and at 11 am on Sundays.
-We are providing a link for families to buy lawn signs, write a positive message, and post them on the church lawn.
-We post a devotional or something from the staff every day: Music on Mondays, Denise's Devo on Tuesdays, Theology on Thursdays, Funny on Fridays, worship on Sundays. Our views are increasing every week.
-We record children's message, sermon, announcements, prayer requests music and virtual choir weekly and send the worship service out to our members.
-We did a live sunrise Easter prayer before we posted the pre-recorded Easter service, and then we had two live ZOOM Easter fellowship hours.
-Bible study and committees are meeting by ZOOM.
-the prayer team is more active
We will all need to care for each other during this anxious time.

A prayer for anxious times
Dear Lord, help us not to let our fears and anxieties tie us in knots. Let us relax and trust in your loving arms to hold us and support us. Keep us connected to one another in friendship and love, even when we are separated by space. Heal those who are suffering, and protect us from sickness and hopelessness. We lean on you, our Comforter and Friend. Amen.
