Subject: What a Good Neighbor!

Good Evening NHMC:

 

What is being a good neighbor?

Neighbors usually play a very important role in our community and our lives. Good neighbors are friendly, considerate and helpful. Their actions support the community and they look out for others.

Great neighbors step up and rise to the occasion in times of need… and expect nothing in return.

In tonight’s cover story of our Update Report, we highlight a great neighbor, LIFEhouse Church and Pastor Dana Hanson.

Twice a week, for the past few months, LIFEhouse Church and their team of volunteers have delivered 544 meals to our caregivers. Always delivered in a kind and humble manner.

These meals mean so much to all our caregivers. They are not only delicious and provide nourishment and energy throughout the day, but they also serve as a real morale booster!

The days are long and arduous at the hospital during this time and these meals are so greatly appreciated.

LIFEhouse Church and Pastor Dana Hanson…what a good neighbor!

Stay Safe and Be Well,

Brian

LIFEhouse is connected to the Alliance of Renewal Churches. The director, Mike Bradley, sent this to us.

From ARC Director Mike Bradley:

In a time when it is important to listen, learn, and seek to grow in our understanding of one another, who are the voices we should listen to? The speaker in this video is one of those people we can and should listen to. His name is Steven W. Zachary. He is a past president of the Minnesota NAACP. He regularly received death threats as a result of his advocacy for justice. And he won a landmark legal victory to outlaw gender discrimination.

Steven’s personal story is remarkable. In this courageous, raw, and compelling message posted on YouTube, Steven shares his story. Steven, who is an ordained minister as well as an attorney, and a member of Wonderful Mercy Church in Gilbert, AZ pulls no punches. He says hard things and he says them beautifully. He says important things and he says them tenderly.

I highly commend Steven and his message to you.

I discovered this message to be very helpful. I recommend to y’all. PD

Pentecost Sunday is a day of new beginning just as the Holy Spirit breathed over the waters of creation, in the nostrils of the first human, and over all the followers of Jesus at Pentecost…a message for the times ahead

Hey, brothers and sisters in Christ, why don’t we see more transformation in our lives and the lives of Christians around us?

Bible study, spiritual growth classes, lots of prayer, being in a small group, “going to church”… Why doesn’t my life or the lives of so many around me look more like what Jesus would look like if he were me in any given situation?

What’s missing?

We will spend four Mondays@ 6 PM PST exploring this together. Video, teaching, discussion, and exercises…We will join in a zoom meeting and make progress in transformation.

Joy…

“Sticky” Love…

Identity…

Character-building…

Explore with me.

We thank God that the LIFEhouse Church community continues to be faithful in funding God’s mission through his church. Offering is coming in through mail, folks “delivering” their offering, and online. We are a bit behind what is “budgeted” but what is inspiring is our response as we face these times together. For everyone, please remember to partner with us in our ministry of providing physical, spiritual, pastoral, and emotional care and support for our congregation and our community. Your continued faithful financial support makes all of this possible.

Remember you can give online by clicking this link or sending your check to the LIFEhouse.

Let me highlight one of the exciting opportunities we have to serve our community is Meals of Love. We are being used to God to bless our neighbor across the street with prayer and delvering hot and delicious meals for the staff. We are ordering these from small local “mom and pop” restaurants in order to bless those neighbors, as well. Thus far, we have raised about $3000 for this! God is good! If you wish to contribute to this, simply write love offering at bottom of the check or online, click “Love Offering” in the dropdown menu.

You may also donate masks or make masks for the hospital.

The hospital requests that people don’t just show up, so we will deliver them for you. Just bring them to Lifehouse Church office, 10-12 M-F.

Mike and Debee Jusko also announced our “Meals of Love” Outreach. At the hospital there is no cafeteria open. Patients are receiving food, but staff has to wing it. Well not if we can help it!

We contacted the hospital and set up an arrangement where we can have fresh, wholesome and delicious meals delivered to be dispersed amongst the staff.

Each time we do this we will have 20-30 meals delivered that we have ordered from smaller local stand alone restaurants we frequent. This way we are showing love to them and to our hospital! A double win!

It’s about $200-$300 a time, so we will begin once a week and see where we go. Your donations will dictate how many times we can do this.

To donate, simply give online,

and choose “Love Offering”. Or to send a check, make it out to “Lifehouse Church” and put “love offering” in the memo.

Thank you and God bless your generosity!
