We’re Here To Help!

For nearly two years, COVID-19 has disrupted all aspects of our lives. Indiana has seen an unprecedented 700,000 cases, with over 18,000 of those occurring in La Porte County alone. As a result, we have lost over 275 family members, spouses, neighbors, and friends.

But now there’s hope.

As of November 2nd, 2021, the COVID-19 vaccine has become available to all people ages 5 and older. We must do our part to end the spread of the virus. When we get vaccinated, we move closer to the days when we could unwind with friends on the shores of Lake Michigan, laugh with co-workers at our favorite restaurant, worship with fellow believers in our church or temple, and embrace loved ones at our family gatherings.
