We offer this gathering twice per year to create space for training, encouragement and feedback.

A lunch gathering for our Church Ministry Coordinators (CMC) is coming up on Wednesday, Feb. 22 from 12-1 PM at Cedar Falls Church of Christ (2727 W 4th St, Cedar Falls).

We offer this gathering three times per year as a chance for each of our partner churches to send a representative to learn more about what's new at Love INC and how their church can continue to partner well with our ministry. Reply to this email and let us know if you can attend.
Begin Now started yesterday!
This is a 12-week session where our clients participate in small-group class settings that are designed to help them forge a path to a transformed life. 

We need help from our partner churches to provide meals for these class sessions.  Find out more details at the
 Take Them a Meal website.
"I work at the front desk and answer the phones at First United Methodist Church of Cedar Falls. My position on the front line often puts me in touch with someone in crisis or in need of assistance. I know that anyone I refer to Love INC will be treated kindly, with respect, and with dignity.

Our church's gap ministry is Wee Care, a ministry of providing infant and toddler supplies to families who find it difficult to purchase them. We have volunteers who are happy to pack the specific requested items for each child. They are eager to meet the parents and sometimes hold a little one when they arrive for their scheduled appointment. We are excited to be a part of the Love INC network, and grateful to have an opportunity to help young families."

We got a call this month from a young family who is struggling under the weight of medical bills. They have two young children who have a heart condition. The condition has required surgery for both children and ongoing medical care. They work full-time, but are unable to pay their mountain of medical bills and are currently filing for bankruptcy.
 
Their circumstances are incredibly difficult. They are leaning into their church and family for support. We count it a privilege to serve them too. This month we came alongside this family to offer baby essentials, but, more importantly, a listening ear, encouragement and prayer.
