24:7 Small Group Puts Their Hearts Into Action!

On Friday, February 4, the members of the 24:7 small group met in the fellowship hall to stuff Valentine bags with pre-packaged goodies for their friends at Bell Ridge mental health housing complex in McCormick. Shannon Stewart made contacts with local friends who donated silk flowers to complement the gift bags. The fellowship hall became a make-shift florist as the bud vases were turned into beautiful creations! Each resident received a Valentine card in their bags that reminded them of John 3:16 and God’s wonderful gift of love to us all!



You may wonder why these ladies from the 24:7 small group (Linda Kidd, Sundee Luedecke, Lindy Stahlman, Paula Grady, Shannon Stewart, and Ellen Zimmerman) are all smiles – it’s because they are packing 20 bags with fall goodies to be delivered to their friends at Bell Ridge housing complex. At their meeting this past Friday, they filled the bags with snacks, muffins, color pencils to “pray and color”, prayer squares, etc. to let their friends know they are remembered while they continue to be unable to meet in person. They also included their own prayers and hugs in the process! After the meeting, the bags were taken to Bell Ridge for delivery by the housing manager there. (Unable to be present but with the group in spirit were Linda Bowser, Shirley Garling, and Sue Mitchell.)
