I would encourage you to make use of these services and let people know they are available.  As God’s people we have the privilege of caring for those in need and this facility will greatly enhance our ability to do that.

‘Which of these do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?’ He said, ‘The one who showed mercy toward him.’  Then Jesus said to him, ‘Go and do the same.’ (Luke 10:36–37)
