Christian Service Center

The Christian Service Center is a ministry program providing free food and clothing through this pantry which was opened October 7, 1986. Our pantry hours are Tuesday from 3:30 to 5:30 PM. During the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, this ministry provides 400 food baskets to area residents.

The pantry is not funded through the Church budget, but through the generous gifts of church members and concerned individuals in the general area. The basic concept of this ministry is found in the following scripture passages:

“For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink... I was naked and you clothed me...”
Matthew 25:35-36

And

Jesus declared, “I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to me will never go hungry and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.
John 6:35
