poor people in the land. Therefore I
command you to be openhanded toward
your fellow Israelites who are poor and
needy in your land.”
At the Christian Caring Center, we are seeing more
and more people who have been on unemployment for a long time due to the
Pandemic now scrambling for jobs and help with accumulated bills from rent, mortgage, utilities, food and clothing, for interviews and specific clothing for new
jobs like steel tipped boots for warehouse workers, waitresses, etc. These
individuals and families have gone through a lot over the past year and a half.
Many of them were sick from the COVID 19 virus. Businesses they worked for are
now closed. One of our Bridge of Hope families, a single dad with 3 children, that
had the children’s mom pass away and the middle child is in and out of the
hospital with kidney disease. Understandably, he can only work part time, etc. The Bible is very clear that we should be“open handed” to our neighbors. Around the whole county there is a shortage of workers.
This is good for the unemployed, but hard on the public. We are trying to deal with the
unfilled paid positions available right now and many of the volunteer positions that are also
unfilled at the Center. All of the staff positions are a calling, and we are taking applications
through our website, christiancaringcenter.net, using our volunteer application. Those
positions are: Community Lunch Manager, Men’s Emergency Shelter Manager and
Overnight Code Blue Staff. The volunteer positions include: Board Members, Hot line
phone responders, greeters and temperature checkers, Village Thrift Shop, Housing
navigator for homeless persons, Food pantry and food pick up person. Special projects
volunteers like: Holiday baskets, Code Blue Volunteers, lite building maintenance for all 4
buildings, fundraising events, etc. We can email you a job description if you email a
request for the position, you are interested in. These jobs are very rewarding and
necessary, but they are also hard work. That is why we say it’s a calling. I guarantee your
life will be changed for the better and you will witness God’s miracles firsthand.
If you or someone you know would like to work or volunteer with the Christian Caring
Center, please have them go onto our website, fill out the volunteer application and email it
back to Madelyn Sutton. I will also email you a job description at a request through the
email. We are excited about new team members, talents, skills and blessing about to
happen at our Center for our clients.
If you have one day a week, a month or just an hour it would be so wonderful and helpful.
We have just installed a HALO system (ultra violet light) in our HAVC that kills all air born
germs including COVID, for everyone’s protection.
We thank God for each one of you!
