Food Pantry Highlights

Highlights from our most recent opening


April 2, 2024

At our last opening (March 19) we communicated to all of our families of our opening change from twice monthly to once. Families were saddened to hear this news but understood and were very appreciative of everything we have done and will be doing for them in the future. This week, we invited back for a second opening families we feel have the greatest need. Each one was so appreciative of this invitation. Please pray for our volunteer team as this change has and will continue to be tough. We have a relationship with each of our families and we feel the impact.


Since the decision to reduce our opening schedule was made, our team has been busy reviewing each of our processes and ways to reduce costs. Those areas are shopping, donations and reducing food in bags. Changes have been made and results should be realized over the next month. 


Where can you help? Donations! Our main needs are the items featured as the Pantry Items of the Month The items for April are jelly and crackers. Know that other donations are more than welcome. Carts are outside the Worship Center and the Office and there is a black bin outside the gym doors. 


Prayer Requests :

  1. AA – Senior lady prayers for health and strength
  2. BB – A request for family and health. 
  3. CC – Mother requesting prayer for her daughter looking for job and her personal anxiety for her daughter.
  4. DD – A request of prayer for all his neighbors' health and those of his church.

Gayton's Care Ministry receives NBC12 Acts of Kindness recognition

Our food pantry received an NBC12 Acts of Kindness recognition last week and the TV segment aired Sept. 14. Mike, Amy and I were humbled to receive this as we are doing something we love and showing our passion to help others. While we received this recognition, our volunteers play a critical role in the pantry's success. One of our volunteers and long term family member, Julie Bryant, nominated us and you will hear some of her story in the news segment.

We thank each of you for any part you've played in our mission. 

Thank you,

Carolyn, Mike, and Amy
