52 Stories

All of us have unique interactions with God, stories of God showing up in our lives. In these 52 Stories, people connected to Schweitzer share how God is present and transforming in their lives. In watching, may you be inspired in Hope, encouraged in Faith, and active in sharing your story of God’s presence in your life.

DOUG SANDERS

“You got two choices: life or death. Choose life. You got faith and fear. Choose faith. Faith moves you ahead; fear holds you back.”


Thank you to all our food pantry volunteers. Those who have been serving in the pantry have been wearing masks and practicing social distancing.


DEVOTIONS FROM SCHWEITZER STAFF


SMALL BUSINESS ASSISTANCE

Many of the local small businesses in our community are facing an economic crisis as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic. Last week Congress passed the CARES Act to provide direct cash assistance to small businesses and non-profits. The Act includes the Paycheck Protection Program which provides an incentive for business owners and non-profits to retain staff. The program is also open to those who are self-employed and gig workers. If you know a small business owner, please share the resources below. Local businesses are an important part of our community. Let’s do what we can to show them our support!
