The Community Mission Christian Center Food Pantry Ministry
Recognizing that God has blessed us to be a blessing, the Community Mission Food Pantry serves as a vehicle to share the overwhelming abundance God has showered on us with those in need in our community. Emergency food is shared with love and respect to those who come for assistance. It is our intention that they receive not only food for their physical hunger, but generous portions of kindness and grace to feed their spiritual and emotional hungers.
We believe the words of Jesus that this is one way we can respond directly to God's love for us: "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." Matthew 25:35
