Mission Service Activity of the Month
May 2023: Making Blessing Baskets for Healthcare Workers
If you have ever spent time in a hospital or visited a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living centers, then you have seen the incredible mercy and service provided by those in the medical field. Let’s support and encourage medical workers in their workplace. Share with them that they are loved by God and are being lifted in prayer. During your group meeting, put together Break Room Blessing Baskets for Healthcare Workers. Baskets can contain individual items such as chocolate bars, peanut butter crackers, chips, cookies, protein bars, water bottles, or other food and drinks. Create a printable copy of The Beatitudes, Matthew 5:3–12, to be included in the baskets.
Arrange your individual comfort food items in the baskets. Write personal notes on the back of The Beatitudes printouts and highlight verse 7. Pray for the healthcare workers who will receive the baskets. What a blessing it will be for healthcare workers when you deliver these baskets to remind them of their Savior’s love.
Take pictures of this service activity and submit them to share on your district website or in your district newsletter!
