Adulting is hard. As the world has gotten more complex, this saying has become something many of us can relate to. This section of Lake Union @ Home is here to help. We have a new group, “The Ravens,” that can help provide physical needs for our church family and possibly beyond. The name is taken from 1 Kings 17, where God promises to send Ravens to provide for the prophet Elijah’s physical needs.

 

We also want to provide some trustworthy links from our national denomination and our regional church conference regarding the ongoing crisis. We know you can find “news” in many places; we include these faith-based ideas to help you integrate the news and your faith.

The Ravens

In 1 Kings 17, the prophet Elijah is taken care of by God during a time of drought.  God promises to take care of him, and in verse 6 we read “The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.” 

Lake Union launched a new ministry to help during this crisis, and we are calling it “The Ravens.” When our people have needs, our “Ravens” will do our best to meet them. They can run errands, pick up supplies, and even get someone copies of our weekly messages to listen to (or read) if they aren’t able to use technology to access the church website.

Like the ravens that were called specifically to meet Elijah’s needs, our ravens are going to be focused on our church community. They are making phone calls and checking in on people. We invite you to reach out to those you are close to and seei if they are okay. If they have a need, reach out to our ravens by emailing the church (office@lakeunionchurch.org) or message them through our FB page.

We cannot do everything, but we can do something. We cannot meet every need, but we can meet some needs. Together we can do all that we can during this challenging time!
