Adopt a Family

On September 11, 2010 Sturgeon church members washed the exterior of a home in Sturgeon as an expression of God's loving kindness. Church members also provided lunch to the family that day. We had not met the family before but felt led to knock on their door and offer to help. They were most grateful. They said that some of the neighbors were critical of the condition of their home but no one ever offered to help until we did. As we were cleaning the siding we noticed some broken windows at the home and offered to replace them. The Sturgeon UMW provided the resources for replacing the windows. The family has four children and the broken windows were a hazard to them. We hope to continue with projects of loving kindness in the Sturgeon community as a way of helping people see God's love in action.
