Receiving help and giving help are both blessings in their own way, especially when they involve physical and spiritual needs, and everyone can use a little help from time to time.
The third annual Community Care Clinic is planned for Saturday, Oct. 5 at the Faith Evangelical Free Church, 1110 E. Cass St., Prairie du Chien, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. All area residents, regardless of religious beliefs, are invited to attend and receive free oil changes, family photos, professional haircuts, manicures, child care, winter clothes, Bibles, prayer, face painting and even a complimentary lunch (noon to 1 p.m.).
“We’re trying to meet the needs of those in our surrounding communities,” Pastor Mike Jacobson said. “All the services are offered free by individuals who belong to our congregation. We have about 80 volunteers from the church lending a hand.”
