Community Outreach

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
Then the righteous will answer him, "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or need clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?"
The King will reply, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
-Matthew 25:35-40-


Through the support of Dare to Care and the generosity of local farms, grocers, businesses and individuals, we manage a local food bank, offering produce, canned goods and meat to local residents in need of assistance.

Awake Ministries offers residential and outpatient recovery programming for addiction behaviors. We believe that God is our Deliverer and He gives us the strength to be free from our past and our struggles. We are new creations in Christ.

Backpack Program

The local school system helps us identify children who need nutritional support during weekends and non school days. We provide backpacks for these children that contain an assortment of non perishable foods to help sustain them during these times
