About the Ministry – This ministry is based on Mathew 25:35 “For when I was hungry you gave me food…”. The goal of this ministry is to meet the immediate need of food for those who are food insecure, but also to let those we serve know that they are loved! This ministry has become so much more than lunches… we have built relationships and filled other needs as well (winter coats, furniture, household goods, diapers, clothes, car seats, strollers, etc).
With Cadet Girl Scout Troup 63 on May 9, 2015
Pray (for the ministry and those we serve). Serve (come out to make and hand out lunches). Support (donate snacks, fruit, or money).
Upcoming Opportunities – We meet every second and fourth Saturday from 10am to about noon in Luther Hall to prepare 500 lunches. We then caravan to the Cedar Point Apartments to hand the lunches out. Please joins us!
Diaper Ministry / Needs
WIC and Food Stamp programs do not cover diapers.
Diapers can cost a family $100 month per child.
1 in 3 parents has had to choose between buying diapers and food.
Without diapers babies cannot attend daycare or participate in early childhood education.
Those of you who have built relationships with the folks we serve through Brown Bag Ministry and Abundance Ministry know that diapers are a big deal to the families we serve! The good news is that we have partnered with The Diaper Train to supply diapers on a monthly basis! Together we can do something tangible for families that are struggling at the moment! Come be a part of solution! We will hand out the diapers on the 4th Saturdays of Brown Bag Ministry. Questions? Contact Stacey Bell.
