SERVE

MISSION MINISTRY

The mission of our church is to go out and make disciples of Jesus Christ. There are many ways to serve. A few are listed below.

RUBY’S PANTRY

We are a “Pop-Up Site” for Ruby’s Pantry whose mission is to to procure and distribute corporate surplus food and goods to help fight poverty, hunger and disease in rural communities in the United States for those with low resources and in crisis through churches, food shelves and other local civic organizations. To develop the ”Blessing Box” concept to activate people in being alert to the needs of others and to be proactive in encouraging, showing friendship and meeting tangible needs of struggling neighbors, friends and strangers regardless of race, religion or ethnicity.

Ruby’s Pantry distribution days are the first Thursday of every month. Registration starts at 4:00 pm and ends at 6:00 pm, and food distribution is from 5:00-6:30 pm. There are no income requirements, and anybody can come. For $20 you will take home two baskets/boxes of food. Bring two laundry baskets or boxes with you if you can. If you would like to volunteer for this mission, please contact Deb Putnam at putnamd@uwplatt.edu.
