WBUCC Response to COVID-19

Dear Friends,
In light of the continuing spread of the COVID-19 viral illness, West Bloomfield United Church of Christ will not be meeting for worship or other group activities until further notice. Video sermons will be posted on our Facebook group page. We will stay in touch and in service via phone and computer.
Why? This illness is now in the community-spread stage, and we must place the safety of the vulnerable and the good of community, country and world above our own desires. It is prudent (and good Christian and scientific practice) to eliminate any opportunities for the mass-spread of the virus. In doing so, we can slow the rate of infection so our medical resources are not overwhelmed. Far from “panic,” preemptive action and preparedness are wise and necessary marks of good citizenship. Let’s all pray for each other, those on the front lines combating this virus, and our leaders.
Here’s how we can all keep up with our pledges. Please don’t send your money to us if you anticipate hardship due to lost income! If you are well set to weather this financial storm, we welcome your donation. Online Givingchurch set up for fb live

Make A Mother’s Day Diaper Drive

church 2017 3 WBUCC will be collecting diapers for our “Make A Mother’s Day” Diaper Drive in honor of mother’s day. We’ll accept disposable and cloth diapers, pull-ups, as well as wipes. We take all sizes in new or opened packages. We’re especially looking for newborn and sizes 4 & 5. (Some people may have leftover diapers their children have outgrown–we take those too as long as they are in new condition.) ROC City Bottoms is a nonprofit community group in Rochester, NY. They work with local organizations (such as Cameron Ministries) & other community agencies to provide diapers for little bottoms in need.

Diapers are not a luxury, and many moms face the choice of buying diapers or buying food. Let’s honor our mothers in need with the gift of diapers.
There will be collection bins at church starting Sunday April 15th through Mother’s Day, and you can drop off donations whenever the church is open. If you can’t get to church but want to donate, or want to be sure the church is open, please contact me (330-2471 texting is best). You can find out more about ROC City Bottoms and the diaper need in Rochester at their website http://www.roccitybottoms.org/
