There are many ways that you and your family can help in this season.
We post the needs of our Evangel family and bear one another’s burdens in a practical way.
Evangel is starting a drive to help provide for some of the practical needs of those around us, and we’d love for you to play a part!

Nextdoor is a social networking app that is used to give people a way to better support one another and help coordinate aid between those in need. Add yourself to the map, detail the errands you can run or any other sort of assistance you can provide (like offering a daily check-in phone call, delivering groceries, or picking up prescriptions).
Whether you serve by delivering or picking up meals, even a small gesture can have a lasting impact for those in need, especially during this season.
Bismarck: Email [email protected] to volunteer to pick up to-go meals for families in need.
Garrison: Email [email protected]
Reach out to senior adults and others who might need assistance getting medication, food, household supplies, or prayer and encouragement during this season.
Many nursing home residents are confined to their rooms and are not able to have visitors during this season. Get your kids involved in making cards and putting together activity bags to encourage them. (If possible, ask for names of the residents to make it personal.)
Let your neighbors know when you are running to the store and offer to pick up groceries, medications, or anything else they might need.
Getting outside is a great idea, so go for a walk and spend some time in prayer. Want to get the kids involved? Let them paint rocks with kind words or bring chalk to leave encouraging notes or drawings along your walking path.
Check in on seniors, single moms, students, and anyone else who may need a listening ear.
Another way to make a difference is by donating blood to the local blood bank. The Red Cross and others have expressed that this is currently a great need.
Reach out to employees in the medical field. Many are working around the clock caring for patients and responding to needs. Consider sending care packages and notes to thank them and let them know you’re praying for them.
With childcare and schools closed, offer pop-up child care for children of medical professionals.
Due to cancellations of large events and gatherings, many employees are suffering a loss of hours and wages. Reach out to them with a note and a financial gift and let them know that you’re praying for them.
Ask students who are out of school at this time to use sidewalk chalk to leave encouraging messages in their neighborhood.
While leaving your home may not be the wisest way for you to help right now, you still have the opportunity to serve others through financial giving. Continue to be generous through giving to your home church.
Order takeout or buy gift cards from a local restaurant. And pick up a meal or a gift card to bless your neighbor while you’re at it!
Prepare snack packs and hygiene bags for those in need.
