Hunger is invisible.

It's painful and it's a serious issue in our community. It's one that children face every day. In the spirit of connecting with the pain and possibility in our community, we hope to alleviate some of this pain through our Love Packs Ministry


How can you help?

You can help by:

  • Checking out our wish list on for items that we need
  • Bringing non-perishable food to worship
  • Designating an offering (write "Love Packs" in the memo line) to put in the baskets as they are passed during worship.

Or sponsor a child.

We also have a wonderful opportunity for you to be able to sponsor a specific child for a year. The cost for a child to receive a Love Pack every week is approximately $200 for the entire school year.
