The Goal

“Let the man who has two tunics share with him who has none; and let him who has food do likewise”…  Luke 3:11

The Bible is clear, both in the Old and New Testaments that we are to help the poor.  In today’s economy, people are really struggling to put food on the table, pay rent and utilities, pay for medicine, etc..  The benevolence ministry team has determined to approach this need holistically.  While we want to take care of emergency needs to the extent possible, our ultimate desire is to turn lives around, both physically and spiritually.

Food Pantry

The Food Pantry is perhaps the most visible of our benevolence outreach programs.  It is open on Wednesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and is staffed by some of our retired members and teens who are home schooled.  Others volunteer their time to shop, sort and prepare the food bags, which contain recipes for the food in the bags.   Still others write uplifting notes and scriptures which are also placed in the bags.  See our Pantry Needs list.

Skills Classes

From time to time classes are offered in the following topics. These classes are just part of the holistic approach  the Downtown church is taking. 

  • “Backyard Intensive Gardening”
  • “How To Prepare Inexpensive Nutritious Meals"
  • “How To Live Within Your Means”.

The Future of our Program

As this ministry continues to grow we will need more and more volunteers.  If you are interested in working in this ministry, please contact Ron Baker.
