Food Pantry

As a community church, not only are we dedicated to the spiritual needs of our community, but we are also concerned about the physical and emotional as well. The Food Pantry was established in 2013 as an outreach ministry to the less fortunate in our community. Our faith instructs us as believers in Jesus Christ to feed the hungry, visit the sick, and help the under privileged in our society. This ministry was born out of our desire to follow God’s Word in our church and in our lives. 

Our Mission:

To fight hunger by providing food on a regular basis to those in need.

Our Vision:

Through a community food pantry, we will offer those in need additional opportunities to obtain food, either by coming to the food pantry at times when other food pantries are closed, or by a team of volunteers that will go into the community to deliver meals.

Who We Help:

Our food pantry is open to any household that participates in government assistance programs or is in need of assistance due to unemployment or medical problems.

We require a person to provide their name and address, form of identification, number and ages of people residing in their household and any government assistance programs they are currently receiving. 

We will provide assistance to anyone regardless of race, color, age, religion, national origin, disability, gender, sexual orientation, political affiliation or location.
