Food Pantry

With the economy struggling, our Food Pantry meets the needs of area families on a weekly basis. Open each Friday at 8:30 am, the pantry supplies free canned and packaged food along with some vegetables, breads, meats, and dairy products.

Our food pantry is blessed generously by our church’s budget, but also by other area churches, schools, and service organizations who help contribute money and food.A picture of a woman holding up spare change in the palms of her hands, with a sign that says "Make A Change."

The pantry serves between 150 and 200 families a week. In addition, there is a weekly Bible Study (in Fellowship Hall), available for all, during the hour prior to food distribution.

Volunteers are needed to purchase food, pick up donated food, sort and stock shelves and freezers, and serve on Friday mornings. If you have the spiritual gifts of Helps or Hospitality you may find this a very rewarding opportunity.
