The meals, presence and prayers of our church meant so much to all of our family. I am so grateful for the loving support of Blue Grass. The church family helped make a very difficult time a little easier to bear. These experiences have inspired the creation of Helping Hands – Loving Hearts to serve other Blue Grass family and friends in their times of need.” Jennifer Brickner If you have a heart for serving, there is a place for you in the Helping Hands Loving Hearts Ministry.How can you get involved with Helping Hands Loving Hearts Ministry?
