Ways to Help

Adopt a food:

Thanks to all who signed up to adopt a food.  If you missed the table over the past few weeks, you can sign up here:

Adopt a Food

Thanks so much for helping to keep the LPC Food Pantry shelves stocked. This is an easy way to serve and fill a huge need in our community. We all go the grocery store, usually multiple times a week... by picking up a few extra items and dropping them off at church once a month, you are providing food for those in need. It's a practical way to make a difference, just by grabbing a few extra things during your normal grocery store run. Thanks so much for serving in this capacity. You are truly appreciated.


Serve:

Saturday mornings at the pantry from 8:45-11:00am.  There are many OPEN SLOTS to be filled:

What’s new with the pantry?

We completed our Harvester’s Site Inspection on 2/25 and passed!  A very special “thank you” to Randy who went above and beyond to make sure our shelves are compliant and orderly.  Thank you all each week in making sure our shelves are stocked and tidy. 

Partnering with Children's Ministry during VBS to do a food drive & hygiene bags for Freedom Fire Ministries and LPC Food Pantry. More partnering opportunities are on the horizon. 

Prayer room utilization- the prayer room is available for people who want more privacy to pray with volunteers 

If anyone wants to volunteer at the pantry and is not a church member there will be a form in the supply closet for them to fill out.  This form will need to be turned into the church office first.  Someone from the Food Pantry will be in contact with them.

Please continue to pray for the food pantry so we may continue to show the love of Jesus in practical ways by serving others.  Thank you.

Peace,
