Helping Parents During the Shutdown

04.26.20 | Video Stories, Covid-19, Be The Church

Beverly Dear went on Facebook and posted a status asking who needed help with childcare in the midst of daycares/schools closing, and preceded to watch church online. The sermon that specific Sunday challenged our Pinelake family to "be the church."
Immediately after the service was over, she had dozens of comments of people in need. They knew that this is what God had placed before them! The Dears had about 14 kids signed up, and they averaged about 7-9 kids a day.

"We realized we weren't in this alone when we started this whole thing. Friends, neighbors, people from pinelake church we didn't even know were dropping up snacks. Papa John's in Florence dropped off free pizza. We never even asked anyone, people just wanted to help." - Beverly Dear

The most amazing part of this story is that Tim and Beverly Dear weren't after any credit. Their hearts are to see God glorified in the midst of trying times. We love our Pinelake family!
