Ideas for Thanking COVID-19 First Responders?


Our church council decided last night that we would like to acknowledge, encourage, and thank church members who are putting their personal and family safety on the line (police officers, fire fighters, health care workers) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Do you have any suggestions for creative, effective, appropriate ways to do this?

What a thoughtful idea Bill. I've seen thank you signs on lawns, thank you parades, or some people are writing thank you notes or providing a gift card thank you. I wonder if even just asking them how they need to be supported would be a way to thank them. Maybe they need someone to deliver groceries or give them ideas of fun things to do with their kids.  I also wonder if knowing their schedule and making sure someone is praying for them while they work would be an encouragement to them. Knowing who these workers are in your neighborhood would be a great way to encourage our neighbors as well. 


In our neighborhood we have a sign-up to bring meals to medical professionals.
