Share the Warmth Drive: October 3rd and 4th

The SBC COVID-19 COMMUNITY SERVICE TASK FORCE helps the membership and the community with whatever need arises.  The need we have before us is helping those who can not help themselves.  The widow, the homeless, the sick and children will always be among us.  However, during this COVID-19 pandemic we seem to have more and more who need our help.  It is our time as a Church in the Wheaton and Dupage County community to stand up and allow our good works to glorify our Father in heaven.
The winter time is fastly approaching and SBC would like to distribute over 100 hats, scarfs gloves, and socks to women, men and children who are homeless, in homeless shelters or in transitional living facilities.      We need your help!
Please drop  off new items to  1520, Avery Avenue , Wheaton, IL .  Blankets, Hats, Scarfs, and gloves must be new.  We can not distribute used items due to COVID-19.  The drop off days are October 3rd  or October 4th at 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m.   If you prefer to provide monetary donation please do so by clicking this  link bit.ly/sbchelps or text to give at 630-656-9292 text COVID19 and the amount.
We are going new places, engaging new people and making new sacrifices

9/19 “You’re Never Alone” Webinar

Scripture: Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord our God will be with you wherever you go. NIV

We are experiencing times many of us have never thought possible. The global COVID 19 pandemic, loss of loved ones, social unrest, loss of jobs or change, financial loss, added responsibilities, the closeness of family, friends, and our church life. Join us on Saturday, September 19, to learn coping strategies, ways to manage the ‘multi-facet pandemic our community is facing.

Partnering with the Grief and Loss Ministry; Regina Robinson, MSW, LCSW will lead the Webinar. Regina obtained her Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. Later she earned her Master of Social Work with certification in Child Welfare from the University of Pittsburgh. For over 10 years, she served in her field of passion – Child Welfare and later transitioned into an inpatient behavioral health profession after relocating from Pennsylvania to Illinois. Desiring to grasp a better understanding of barriers that interfered with individual obtaining appropriate and necessary mental health treatment, she ventured into Case Management services with Health Care Service Corporation – Blue Cross Blue Shield. Today, Regina currently serves as a Clinical Case Manager Supervisor for Innovista Health Solutions, a subsidiary company under Health Care Service Corporation.

Please invite friends and family so they may hear strategies to aid in coping and words of encouragement from Regina Robinson and our Grief and Loss Ministry. You will be able to ask questions and receive help for you and your family.
