Serving Their Community
Shared by Rev. Steven Neal, pastor at St. Marks, St. Paul
St. Mark's Lutheran Church in St. Paul, Nebraska, like many other churches, started off the pandemic by asking, "How can we help?"
A few of their hard working volunteers answered the call. 4 dedicated women from the congregation began making masks and since early April, have made 3,000 masks. They have distributed them all, completely free of charge. The masks have been available in the narthex of the church for anybody who would like one.
They have also made masks for businesses in town to provide for their employees. They even made masks and custom-ordered reusable gowns out of blue tarp for the local hospital and clinic. These personal protection items can be sanitized and used as needed. All of it was given to those in need of these supplies for free.
