Attached is a  one page sheet of research based virus resources for use in the community.  About the 11th link  states  “Faith Based Resources”. IF you link to that, you will see page with link  “church and coronavirus resources”.  Has many topics.   I just thought this resource  may be of interest to ministers, so I am sharing it with you.  Was glad to see it included with TN Dept of Health materials.

Also I have attached a Sevier County Food Resource Guide too.

Will you please share with churches in Sevier County, if you think these may be helpful for them? 

Thank you so much!  Stay well.
