For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.
Matthew 25:35

  • Food Gift Cards Needed

    The church often receives calls and/or visits from people requesting aid in addition to visiting our food pantry.  While it is not our policy to give money, we do like to keep $10 food gift cards in the office to help respond to these requests.   We are currently out of these cards.  If you feel led, please purchase food gift cards (McDonald's seems to be popular) for the church to share with those in need.    Thank you!
