If you'd like to serve our community, below are a few organizations in need. As your situation allows, consider participating in one of the following opportunities to 'love your neighbor.' The time has never been more appropriate for us to BE the church.
1. Kendall County Women's Shelter
2. Riverview Nursing Home
3. Care Choice Nursing Home
See below for more information on each serve opportunity!
Cibolo Creek has had the privilege of helping Kendall County
Women’s Shelter over several years. They
are angels on earth who provide an incredible service! Due to COVID-19, they have had to
cancel their three major fundraisers.
Kendall County Women's Shelter is asking us to Stand Up Against
Domestic Violence and show our support to the hundreds of women and children
that they serve each year. By helping
them replenish the lost funds, they can continue to provide emergency shelter,
children's services, counseling, case management, and other essential programs
that support victims of domestic violence and their children. Learn more about their services at www.kcwstexas.org.

that we are with them and for them!
Each year during Serving Sunday we have helped with their
garden area so that the residents have a beautiful place to be outside.
Typically, we also spend some time doing various activities with the
seniors. This year we were not able to do either.
Thus, we are SO excited that Riverview is now able to
allow us to help on two Sunday’s in September!
TEAM #1: SUNDAY, SEPT. 13 @ 10 AM, MEET AT
RIVERVIEW NURSING HOMEWe will clean the
tables and chairs and add some fall flowers. The flowers can be hanging
plants (up to 8) and/or table centerpieces (up to 4).
Supplies Needed: Cleaning supplies for
the tables and chairs, gloves, brooms, garbage bags and flowers.
Masks, gloves, and sunscreen for all volunteers will be neededTEAM #2: SUNDAY, SEPT 20 @ 7 AM, MEET AT RIVERVIEW
NURSING HOMEClean up the rest of
the garden area. We can use the first 15 minutes to unload tools. The
mulch will be delivered. We will pull weeds and lay the mulch. If we have
time, we will also remove the weeds from the raised garden beds. Since the
residents will come back out at 9:00, we will have to step out for a few
minutes while they are in the garden area. (approximately 15-20
min.) However, we hope to have enough volunteers to complete the
project before 9:00.Supplies Needed: Gloves, shovels,
rakes, and garbage bags. Masks, gloves, and sunscreen for all
volunteers will be needed.TO SERVE email Kristin at email@example.com let me know if you will be Team #1 or Team #2!If you have any questions, contact the project
leader, Karen Kochheiser, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for continuing to love your neighbor by being
the church to our community!
The residents of our
senior facilities are still very isolated. If you are willing to write a card
to a few, or become a monthly pen pal with Care Choice folks, please respond to
this email with what you might be able to do! NOTE: We had a
wonderful donation of two large boxes of note cards. If you’d like to
write, but don’t have any please email Heather at email@example.com and we will figure out how to get
them to you!The cards for the October delivery to Care Choice will be
due by the week of September 21st. You can deliver to the front
desk of the church office. Or, if after hours,
you can place them in the green wagon at the front door of the church
Thank you to those who have
written cards to the residents of Care Choice in Boerne! They are so very
appreciative given the lack of personal contact right now. One pen pal has already received a 2 page letter from
her 72 year old female resident! How exciting to get a letter back! Another volunteer received a letter from his pen pal, as
well as some prints she had done in the past. She loves paintings and
photography!THANK YOU for letting our seniors citizens know that we
Contact Heather at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions.
