While we're staying inside, we all should have a few minutes to spare to complete our census forms. Don't forget that funding for many crucial services in our area are based on census data -- and that data can only be completely accurate if we all participate. It takes no more than 5 to 10 minutes (usually less) to complete.

When a major health event — like the Coronavirus — happens, you might be looking for ways to help. Scammers use the same events to take advantage of your generosity. Some scammers use names that sound a lot like the names of real charities. This is one reason it pays to do some research before giving. Money lost to bogus charities means less donations to help those in need.

Love Chapel - Ecumenical Assembly of Bartholomew County Churches

With the current state of affairs in our country, we are seeing some pretty chaotic things. Rumors, fears, and hype have often times replaced common sense. The COVID-19 is extremely important to pay attention to, but it is not the end of the world as we know it. What also is important is our mission to help provide food and shelter to those in need. That need doesn't stop because of COVID-19. At Love Chapel, we have put into place precautions to protect our guests, staff, and volunteers, but we remain committed to being open to serve. We do depend on our dedicated volunteers and many of them may fall into one of the risk categories and they rightfully can not continue to volunteer. Are you finding some free time on your schedule? We would love to see you help bridge the gap in this time of need and volunteer at Love Chapel - give us a call at 812-372-9421. We also will be seeing our expenses rise as food donations, less volunteers, etc. will be driving up our costs. If you can help financially, please go to our website to donate!
