John Lovitz passed away on February 8, 2023. John was a valiant man of God who never met a stranger and spread love wherever he went.

Circles West Orange Celebration

Celebrating a New Partnership!
Please join us in celebrating Missions’ new partnership with Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP)!
As part of our Restoring Hope Initiative, we are so excited that SHP fits well with our commitment to sustainable and dignified housing for our neighbors.
Across the U.S., so many children go without a bed to sleep on. These children end up sleeping on floors – sometimes without a mattress. A bed is a basic need for a child's physical, emotional, and mental well-being.
SHP is a national organization answering the call to a national problem. They partner with organizations to build, assemble, and deliver top-notch bunk beds to children and families in need. "NO KID SLEEPS ON THE FLOOR IN OUR TOWN!®️”
Stay tuned for ways you can get involved with SHP!
The February featured Staff Shout Out goes to the Assistant Director of Care Ministries, Antony Larry!
A big Shout Out to Antony Larry, Associate Director of Care Ministries & Worship Engagement, for the loving care he provides to all who are grieving.
Recently a member of the East Winter Garden community reached out to Antony to share about a family there who had recently lost their daughter. Antony recognized the girl's name as she had been his former student when he worked with Arts After Five in the community. The family was heavily grieving and did not know where to turn. He was able to connect the family with a reputable and economical funeral home that St. Luke's recommends.
In addition, he also connected with Circles and the Missions Team and through their assistance, Antony was able to order a dinner for the family through Uber Eats during this very difficult time.
This is just one example of how Antony cares for families when they need care the most. Thank you for helping this family and all the others you walk within your role.
