The Food Pantry is open on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month at 3:30 PM. ID is required since we do also have USDA foods. Special food is provided at Thanksgiving and Christmas for guests to take home and prepare, but each year at Thanksgiving, a special banquet is prepared for everyone.
There is no charge for any food service.

As Jesus has commanded us to care for those less fortunate then us, we as a church have made an effort to assist where possible. To that end we have joined a community wide effort to address these issues. Through a fellowship of churches and non profits known as Compassion Coalition, we have been able to meet the needs of people who need it the most. Some of those services are through social services such as tutoring and mentoring programs, Youth Volunteer Corps, health screening education and assistance, inner city missions, and disaster response, among other things. For more information see below.
