As you are coming to get food, we want you to know something. We believe that God made you in his image (like I mentioned last week – click here), but God’s plan for you goes beyond your existence.
What we believe is that God created you on purpose and for a purpose. If you’re not dead, God’s not done. That means, there is a higher and greater calling on your life.
You may not feel that way at the moment. You may feel a little beaten up by life. And I get that. I know what that can feel like. I know what if feels like when you’re in between jobs and you’re unsure if you’re going to be able to make it another month. And I know that, during those times, the idea of having a bigger purpose seems almost laughable.
However, no matter how dark your night is right now, we want you to know there is so much more that God has for you. He loves you. If you doubt that, look no further than our food bank and all the other churches and non-profits God has placed in this area to help you during this time. And while I can’t speak for other organizations, I can speak for us. And what I can tell you is, when you come here, you are experiencing God’s love, first hand. God is using the people of this church and food pantry to show you his love.
There’s much more to it than that, but we hope when you come today, you’ll find a little hope for the future God has in store for you!
