We Want to Help . . .

Are you in need of help around the house? Do you need help with yard clean-up? Do you need someone to help walk your dog? Would you like a ride to the doctors, to the grocery store or to church? Helping Hands is available and willing to help our church families in times of their need.

Contact Pastor Linda with your request and she will make arrangements with a Helping Hands member to assist you. Pastor and Helping Hands will keep all requests for assistance confidential and private. There is no charge to you, just family helping family.

Perhaps you do not need help, but have a friend or neighbor who could use a helping hand. Please ask Pastor to contact Helping Hands for assistance. Provide Pastor with the name and a telephone number or email address so arrangements can be made. This is also a good outreach opportunity for Eden.
