OUR VISION
That the world would look in on us and say,
"See how they love one another".

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God
 hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:10 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)


"I've got The Father on my side, Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit and 2/3 of the angels. What do you think I'm going to do? Sit down and cry?"
- Leonard Ravenhill

A FEW WORD FROM AN OLD GEEZER

Please keep in mind that we are trying to help as many as possible by providing free food. There are many in our area that are in need of assistance. Do not take more than you need and do not abuse the system. As much as we desire to bless you we will take action if we have reason to believe that anyone is intentionally taking advantage.
