Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry is usually open from 2:15 p.m. until 4:15 p.m., Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., Wednesday. Please call us first at 286-3711 to make sure someone is at the church. Please also check with the Jackson Food Pantry/Clothesline on Main Street. We offer some items (for example, toilet paper and cleaning supplies) that the Food Pantry downtown is not able to provide.

Why do we give away food?

We don't give away food to earn God's favor; we give away food because we are responding to God's love by keeping his commandment to "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself (Mark 12:30-31). You are our neighbor. If you need help, we will try to provide it. Besides food for your family, we also encourage you to seek spiritual food through prayer, the study of God's Word, and worship.

How Often Can You Receive Help From Us?

We are not a large congregation and we depend on the generosity of our members. The need for food in this community is greater than we can begin to meet. Therefore, we restrict visits to once each month. We ask that you honor this request. Nonetheless, if your need is critical, we will not turn you away!

 

Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Galatians 6:2
