Community Help

"They are blessed who show mercy to others, for God will show mercy to them." Matthew 5:7


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.

CIBOLOCREEK loving our neighbor in SEPTEMBER!

See below for more information on each serve opportunity!

 

KENDALL COUNTY WOMEN'S SHELTER: STAND UP! 

 

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.

RIVERVIEW NURSING HOME

 

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 HOME
We 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 needed

TEAM #2: SUNDAY, SEPT 20 @ 7 AM, MEET AT RIVERVIEW NURSING HOME
Clean 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 kburford@cibolocreek.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 kkochh@aol.com. 

Thank you for continuing to love your neighbor by being the church to our community!

 

CARE CHOICE NURSING HOME

 

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 heatmk@yahoo.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 building. 

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 care!

Contact Heather at heatmk@yahoo.com, if you have any questions.
