The Pantry: Food and Clothing Ministry



All are welcome to make use of the Pantry for yourself or for someone you know. This is a way to share with each other what the Lord has given to us.


Guidelines for Donations

Guidelines for Donations

  1. To keep the Pantry neat and accessible, please drop off your offerings in the Fellowship Hall in the designated area.
  2. If you have clothing that needs to remain hung, please hang in the coat room area on the main floor in the area designated by a Pantry sign.
  3. Please offer items that are in “like new” condition. Please clean all items very well.
  4. Please offer clothing that is washed and pressed; modest (in form, fashion, and message); and “like new” condition.
  5. The items will be gone through and those best suited for the pantry will be kept. The rest will be donated elsewhere or discarded.
  6. Also, to keep the Pantry neat and accessible, please consider storing items, especially larger ones, at your home and placing a note that you have items available on the designated marker board in the Pantry.
  7. It is hoped to offer commonly used, healthy food items and household sundries in the Pantry.

Scriptures to Consider

Psalm 121
I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; the Lord is your shade on your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all evil; He will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.
Psalm 37:25
I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread.
Acts 4:32-35
Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. There was not a needy person among them, for as many as were owners of lands or houses sold them and brought the proceeds of what was sold and laid it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to each as any had need.
