Dear Shepherd of the Valley Community Members and Friends,
The spread of the COVID-19 “Coronavirus” is changing lives and neighborhoods around us as we speak. During these times of uncertainty, it’s important to trust in the things that always carry us through life:
Because COVID-19 is persistent, easily-spread, and can be present in a carrier who otherwise shows no symptoms, we are called to live out faithful ethics in a different way during this time. Medical officials have told us that there is no sure way to prevent the virus from expanding. They have asked that we maintain enough distance from each other to slow the spread to a level they can cope with. This is especially important for the most vulnerable among us: those of advanced age, other illnesses, or with compromised immune systems.
The people Shepherd of the Valley are committed to caring for people at highest risk for negative effects from COVID-19. Our church council met last weekend and unanimously affirmed that the health of the Boise community—particularly the most vulnerable among us—lies at the center of our call to serve faithfully at this time.
As of right now, we are taking the following steps:
We invite you to visit this space often, not just to see what you can receive here but also to see how you can help. We hope you will find many opportunities for both.
Blessings during this time. If you want to talk or need assistance, call the church office at 208.362.1112.
