Coronavirus Response & Resources

Following is an overview of Faith Church's Coronavirus Response Plan along with some helpful resources to help all of us though this difficult time.

Our Response Plan

Pastor Viars explains Faith Church's Coronavirus Response Plan:

  • Until further notice, all Sunday services will be online only (on our website as well as our Facebook page) and all Wednesday evening ministries will be suspended.
  • Additionally, our Community Centers, School, Seminary and Counseling Ministry will also be following all current recommendations by our state & local health officials.
  • If you need help, please let us know; we'd be glad to help in any way we can.

Community Support

Blood Drives

As we all try to manage through this health crisis, another crisis is at hand: A Blood Shortage. Blood has no substitute, and Blood is Life.

Faith Community Ministries has joined with Versiti Blood Centers of Indiana to support the community and will be offering several blood drives over the next few weeks as a support system for our local community.

Versiti and Faith Community Centers are following all social distancing protocol currently recommended to ensure the safe donation of blood at each of these five events.

  • 16 and older are eligible to donate
  • Be sure to bring a Photo ID, eat and hydrate
  • APPOINTMENTS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED in order to maintain space between donors for added safety.
  • DO NOT COME TO THE BLOOD DRIVE IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING 100% HEALTHY.

April 1: Bloodmobile @ Northend Community Center | 2:00-6:30pm | SIGN UP

April 2: Bloodmobile @ Northend Community Center | 2:00-6:30pm | SIGN UP

As an added benefit, Dog N Suds has generously donated $5 coupons for each blood donor at all your blood drives. Dog N Suds is social distance acceptable with their pull-up ordering system.

Childcare for Healthcare Workers

Faith is very thankful for the healthcare professionals serving our community during the current outbreak of COVID-19. We understand that the closing of schools and childcare facilities has created a hardship for many of these professionals. Our love for Christ motivates us to love and serve our neighbors—especially those who are laboring sacrificially to serve the public interest.

Local healthcare providers have asked us to design a program to serve the children of nurses, doctors, and other healthcare professionals. Individuals and families from Faith Church and Faith Christian School are opening their homes to provide childcare for the children of Greater Lafayette’s healthcare workers.

If you wish to participate in this program as either a childcare provider or recipient, please SIGN UP.

Local Restaurant Support

Please consider ordering food from our great local restaurants as this is a great way to love on our community during this time of economic crisis!

Greater Lafayette Commerce's top priority is the health and well-being of our program participants, businesses, their employees and the community at large. This includes encouraging you to continue to support our local restaurants during this time by using their carryout and delivery services.

Encouraging Blog Posts

"In our modern world it isn’t often that something happens that affects the life of every individual in the world. World wars, world economic crises and pandemics do not happen every day. During these moments, the earthly structures in which we tend to find security...may all seem threatened or may be failing. The natural temptation is to fear."
