Loving Our Neighbors In A Time Of Need
As a Church, we’ve always been committed to serving and equipping our neighbors in practical ways. In times like these, it’s never been more important to impact our fellow Lexington residents through practical acts of kindness and generosity. Below you’ll find updates as to the needs we are seeking to meet together as a community. If you have any questions, contact Chad at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Pampering PATHways | Notes Of Encouragement (Updated April 10)
Our Pampering PATHways ministry serves moms and families who are overcoming addiction in partnership with the Polk Dalton Clinic. Because our babies showers are unable to continue in this time of crisis, we’ve found a new way to love and encourage these moms.
Volunteers At God’s Pantry Food Bank (Updated March 20)
As you can imagine, the need for food assistance has multiplied in the last few days, and God’s Food Pantry needs our help! The downtown location at Central Christian Church is in desperate need for volunteers, as many of their normal volunteers are elderly and at risk to leave their home. Volunteers are needed now! If you are interested, email Mary at Mary@godspantry.org
Food Boxes For William Wells Brown Elementary (updated March 19)
William Wells Brown Elementary is located very close to our home at the Lyric Theatre, and sits right in the middle of a community that will be deeply impacted economically during this crisis. In partnership with the Williams Wells Brown Family Resource Center, we’re collecting food boxes for family in need in the East End Neighborhood. Here are the needed items:
Medical Professional Blessing Bags (Updated March 19)
The unsung heroes of our time are the doctors, nurses, and medical professionals who are working tirelessly to care for the sick and needy during an incredibly difficult time. The hours are long, and getting a chance to stop and recharge is hard. Working with members of our Church, we’re assembling blessing bags for medical professionals as a simple act of love and encouragement. In a (preferably) gallon ziplock bag, you can add:
Coffee and Coffee Pods (Kuerig)
With these items, we’d love for you to write an encouraging note and/or prayer to let them know we’re praying for them and supporting them through this crisis! If you’d like to assemble and donate a bag, contact Kaleb at Kaleb@storied.org (859-699-2521) for drop off options.
Lexington Rescue Mission Volunteer Needs (Updated March 19)

Food Pickup And Delivery
Serving Coffee to clients in the morning

How Can We Help?
As the crisis continues, we know many will be impacted and find themselves in need. If you see a need or have a need yourself, let us know here. If we can’t help, we’ll do our best to point you to people who can!
As the needs continue to come, we’re depending on the generosity of our Restoration family to continue to serve our city generously.
