Everyone who has a need for food is welcome to use our pantry, and we are a team that cares about meeting the needs specific to each family and circumstance and sharing God’s love through our service.

Master's Hands

Serves widows, single moms, and the elderly in our church family who have items in their home that need to be repaired or yard maintenance that needs to be addressed.

In the event your family is under-going any kind of temporary crisis and you are seeking financial assistance, we welcome you to fill out an application and submit it to our team.
