Every first and third Tuesday of the month, we hold our CARE Pantry distribution days. Everyone who partakes comes at noon for devotions and a lunch. They then proceed up to the CARE Pantry to go shopping for the household or hygiene products they are in need of.
Helping meet the needs of the body and soul for those in our community.
Christian - Our goal is to show Christ's love to those in our community, to take seriously the call of Jesus to serve one another.
Assistance - Assist people by providing items that will help them care for themselves and their families during difficult times.
Relationships - We desire to build relationships through our CARE Pantry. We seek to serve and connect with those in our community.
Encourage - To support others in their journey, we aspire to give them the confidence and hope they need both spiritually and physically to know they are loved by God.
