Geist Christian Church COVID-19 Response
Our congregation’s Easter Season of Giving outreach efforts certainly hit a roadblock and have to take a different route this year. The needs of others in our community are still just as prevalent. In fact, the need is even greater as the days turn to weeks of isolation and quarantine due to COVID-19. Easter is not just a season. Easter is a way of life for us. We are an Easter people! As you are able, please consider reaching out to help those affected by this pandemic. Go here to download ways you can respond.
