Food Ministry



Are you in need of food assistance? Do you know of someone in need of food assistance? Our church has a Food Ministry to help those who are food insecure. We provide one food bag per month per family. All that is needed to register is a photo identification card.   Please feel free to let this ministry serve you or someone you know.  Contact the church office  for more information.
