Then 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.”
New Beginnings Christian Church’s “Bread of Life” Ministry provides a Tuesday morning Food Pantry. We are actively seeking other ways to serve our community. Please see information below about our Food Pantry. Note: We will be closed Tuesday, January 1. Instead, the Food Pantry will be held on Wednesday, January 2.
NBCC’s Food Pantry
Our food pantry includes a short Bible lessons for those who attend. We will have 2 sessions (if needed). We wish to share Jesus Christ openly and creatively with those who come for food on a weekly basis.
NBCC’s food pantry distributes food every Tuesday from 9 – 10 a.m. to those less fortunate. In these tough times, the response continues to grow. Weekly, we need to replenish the pantry; therefore, we are in continual need of canned goods and non-perishable foods.
Monetary donations are also accepted. A monetary reserve has been used to supplement the non-perishable donations. We are now serving 50 people weekly.
We truly appreciate the many donations of food, money, labor, and prayers that have gone into this much-needed ministry. We realize that some of those benefiting from this ministry may abuse it in various ways. But over the years, we are thrilled to hear that the vast majority of those receiving this food are so thankful because they simply don’t have the mans to provide for themselves. Receiving this food allows them to use their money for payment of utilities, rent, gasoline, etc.
Without YOUR regular donations, this ministry would cost the church about $600 per week. In addition to the generosity of YOUR donated items and money, the church still spends another $250-$300 per week. Again, we thank YOU for your integral participation of this ministry. We feel that we are answering Jesus’ challenge to help care for the poor and homeless. YOUR continued support is very much appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at the NBCC Office Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (except from 12 – 1 p.m.). Donations are also accepted Sunday mornings from 7:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
