In Acts, chapter 6, we read that the disciples set apart seven followers who were full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom to distribute food to those who were hungry in Jerusalem.
Feeding those who are hungry has always been a priority for the faithful. On the Second Saturday of the month, The Shepherd’s Pantry opens in the Helping House, next door to the church at 265 W. Lady street. There are no requirements, no identification cards necessary. If you are hungry, we have food for you. The pantry is open from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
