A large bag of yarn


Featured image for “A large bag of yarn”

Gail lives in an assisted living facility.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the facility, Gail is only able to leave the apartment that she and another woman share once a day for a short period of time. She said that she enjoys knitting, but cannot afford to purchase yarn. She asked if VIS knew of an organization that donates yarn.

Believing that someone would have yarn they would be willing to donate, VIS put out the request. Three days later, VIS had a large bag of yarn donated to bring to Gail!

VIS is in the ministry of making connections. Those connections take many forms – transportation, phone calls, emails, prayers, and others, i.e. yarn. During this time of isolation, some of the littlest things bring the greatest joy.

Think about how you can bless someone today with a little token of kindness!

This team focuses on new and emerging ministries and churches in our Classis. Since it is extremely difficult for one church to have the needed resources to plant a church, this team helps our churches work together to plant new ministries.

Just two weeks ago we launched our Spring Alpha. We are so excited.

Online Alpha has allowed us to try something new. Our Spring Alpha is being done with four churches (MCC, Pillar Church, Immanuel Reformed, House of God), which span three denominations (CRC, RCA, Pentecostal), and is multiethnic. onefaithmanyfaces.org/we-pivoted-as-an-alpha-team/
