A Time to Grieve

*Español abajo*

Ecclesiastes 3… “For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven…A time to cry & a time to laugh. A time to grieve & a time to dance.” During this global pandemic & wide-spread quarantine, the way we grieve has changed. We can’t gather together, share a meal, give & receive comforting hugs. Yet we must grieve. Together, we will share our grief & remember the hope we find in a God who both weeps with us & gives us a future beyond the pain of death. 

If you have lost someone during this time & would like the service to include a photo & the name of your loved one, please contact us by email at dlolly@everydaycc.com by May 30th.

Eclesiastés 3… “Para todo hay una estación, un tiempo para cada actividad debajo del cielo…Un tiempo para llorar y un tiempo para reír. Un tiempo para llorar y un tiempo para bailar.” Durante esta pandemia global y cuarentena generalizada, la forma en que nos afligimos ha cambiado. No podemos reunirnos, compartir una comida, dar y recibir abrazos reconfortantes. Sin embargo, debemos llorar. Juntos, compartiremos nuestro dolor y recordaremos la esperanza que encontramos en un Dios que llora con nosotros y nos da un futuro más allá del dolor de la muerte.

***Si ha perdido a alguien durante este tiempo y desea que el servicio incluya una foto y el nombre de su ser querido, contáctenos por correo electrónico a dlolly@everydaycc.com antes May 30th***

Operation Exodus: Reading Buddies

Reading BuddiesOperation Exodus is a community of caring educators and mentors who believe that small improvements can have a big impact in the life of a child growing up in generational poverty.

The Reading Buddies program is a way that you can help as a volunteer. Reading with and to a child is the most effective way for this level to be increased, and why Reading Buddies are vital to improving these kids’ education!

We ask Reading Buddies to commit to one hour, once a week for the school year. No teaching is required… think of it like sharing a bedtime story. Hours for the program are Monday-Friday 3-4:30 and 5:15-6:30.

If you or your Everyday Group is interested in volunteering, email readingbuddies@operationexodus.org. You can also sign up here.
