COVID-19 / Serve

Below are ways we are can help our Partners in Ministry. Check back here for updates on how to love our community through COVID-19.

Sunrise Children’s Services

Sunrise Children’s Services – Pray for the kids as they are missing community contacts. Pray for the workers that they would have patience with each other as well as with the youth they serve.

They are currently in need of adult women’s panties (size medium and up),  adult women’s socks, bras (all sizes) and plain flip flops (assorted sizes). 

They would love encouraging notes for the girls.

Warm Blessings

In light of COVID-19, Warm Blessings has had to make changes in the way they help our community. While they are no longer able to have people in their facility, they are now providing food boxes containing evening meals for five days. Boxes may be picked up every Tuesday from 2:30 to 6:30 pm. Pray that their workers will stay healthy. Pray that they will continue to receive the donations needed to continue their work.

They are asking for donations of canned soup, boxed macaroni and cheese with sauce included, fresh fruit (apples, oranges, bananas). Food and monetary donations can be dropped off at 609 E. Dixie Ave., Mondays and Tuesdays after 1 pm. You can also give a donation on the Warm Blessings Facebook page.

Clarity Solutions for Women

Praise! We were able to host and broadcast the Annual Clarity Banquet. The number of people who have viewed the banquet far surpasses any other banquet in attendance.

Clarity Solutions is still seeing medical clients in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, as unplanned pregnancies have not stopped in our community. Starting May 26 Clarity will be open regular hours at both their Elizabethtown and Radcliff campus locations for material assistance needs for clients in the program, and for the community at large, on an appointment basis. People can make appointments by calling Clarity at 270-234-1122.

Clarity is still seeking material donations in the form of baby clothes, diapers, wipes, unused formula and baby food, and maternity clothes. As you’re at home cleaning out your closets, keep Clarity in mind!

Additional needs: 

Baby lotion
Baby wash 
Baby powder
Infant swings, bouncy seats, or exersaucers 

Please pray for our clients at risk for abortion in our community during this difficult time.

Email prayer@clarityky.com for an updated list to pray through. 

Helping Hand of Hope

Helping Hand has re-opened. Pray that staff and volunteers will continue to stay healthy as they serve our community and that donations will continue to come in.

They are asking for Bibles for adults and children, hygiene items (shampoo, body wash, toothpaste, feminine hygiene), sheets/comforters (twin and queen – new only), canned/non-perishable food items (tuna, chicken, vegetables, fruit, soups, etc.), packaged snacks, make cards/draw pictures, coloring books and crayons, and monetary donations. Donations can be dropped off at Severns Valley, 1100 Ring Road, Monday through Friday, 9am – 2pm.

Medical Community

PPE Masks  In response to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus and the gross shortage of PPE masks, we are constructing and distributing homemade masks to medical professionals. 

If you choose to serve in this way, here is a tutorial video (please note that there is no obligation to follow this particular pattern). Once completed, masks can be dropped off at Severns Valley, 1100 Ring Road, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. Thank you for your prayers and support during this time!

First Responders

Pray that the Elizabethtown Police, Sheriff’s Office, Fire Department, EMS and Medical Staff at Hardin Memorial Hospital and their families stay safe and healthy while serving on the front lines of COVID-19. Pray that the public will stay safe and healthy by social distancing. Pray for those that have the virus will recover.

Pray that donations will come in to assist our first responders. They can use masks for themselves and their families when they are off duty, snacks for when they are working (protein bars, peanut butter crackers, Gatorade, nuts, etc.), and while daytime crews have people bringing plenty of pizza to them, food cards for night shift first responders would be greatly appreciated.

Prayer Walking

Prayer walking is something you can do individually or as a family. It’s really simple and a great way to teach your children how to pray and show compassion for your neighbors. Start at your home and begin walking around your neighborhood.

1. You can stop at each house if you would like and pray for those who live in the house.

2. You could also pray for an entire street as you walk by each house praying specifically for those things listed below.

 You can pray for these things while on your walk:

1. For you to have an opportunity to meet them, if you don’t know them, and to become good friends with them.

2.For them to be protected from the Coronavirus.

3. If they have children, pray for them and for their parents as they continue school at home.

  • Pray for their salvation. You can pray for them to come to know Christ if they don’t know Him as their Savior and/or pray for them to grow in their faith during this pandemic.

You can also leave them a note letting them know that you care for them and prayed for them while on your walk. (Please don’t put the note in their mailbox. That’s a crime!) 

 We’ve designed a little note for you to download and print at your home. There’s a place for you to write a note to them if you would like. It also lets them know how they can specifically ask for prayer if they so desire, by going to sv.church/prayer. You can download the note here: (Prayer Walking Note)

While you’re out prayer walking, snap a pic and share it with us by sending it to info@sv.church. We would love to pray for you and your neighborhood!
