SERVE FROM HOME

Here are a few simple ideas to love your neighbor and serve your community from the comfort and safety of your own home

If you know someone in the medical care system, pray for them daily and send them an encouraging text or card in the mail. Show them a little extralove by sending them a gift card through a local food delivery service (DoorDash, Postmates, etc.) Organizations like: Local Meals for Local Heroes, Feed the Front Line Nashville, and Frontline Foods Nashville, ask for donations online, buy meals from local restaurants, and deliver them to Nashville-area hospitals.

Amateur artists welcome! Share a colorful picture, encouraging message, or even an uplifting scripture. So many people are outdoors on walks and sidewalk art is sure to brighten their day!

An easy way to support local businesses and bless a friend is by sending a gift card through a food delivery service i.e. (DoorDash, Postmates, etc.) We also have some resources for serving Foster Care families in our community here.

Set a daily reminder in your calendar to text, call or FaceTime those in your life who are elderly or high-risk. Ask what their current needs are if you can assist by running errands and pray for them.

This is a simple way to connect and support your community. One of the new features of Nextdoor allows you to offer to run essential errands or check in on neighbors in need.
