Norfielders are busy making over 100 masks to help the frontline workers of CLASP Homes, a non-profit that helps developmentally disabled adults with housing and other needs. Special thanks go to Jeanette Hensinger, Kerri Meredith, Taffy, Jenn and Davis Miller and Helen Story.
The Norfield Shepherds are actively checking in on and caring for the needs of their flock within the congregation. For more information about the Shepherds Ministry, and to volunteer to help, please contact Kimberly Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Even through this, God is so good. Our faith is growing."
The Norfield Prayer Warriors, led by our beloved Jackie Troxell, are continually lifting up in prayer all who are in need of a healing touch during these tough and testing times.
Our soul waits for the LORD; he is our help and shield. Our heart is glad in him because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast Love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in You. — Psalm 33:20–22 (NRSV)
Norwalk Hospital Gets a Special Treat
Norfield youth Leila Troxell, a Junior at Weston High School, is a newly minted Gold Award Girl Scout with Weston Troop 50456. Leila came up with a special way to show our gratitude to those on the front lines fighting the virus here in Fairfield County.
She reached out to the community and is receiving donations for boxes of girl scout cookies she can give to the Norwalk Hospital community, her way of saying thank you for their dedication during these difficult times.
