Feed My Sheep Program

“…He saith unto him the third time, Simon son of John, loves thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knows all things; thou knows that I love thee, Jesus saith unto him, Feed by sheep…” John 21 :17 ASV.

Jesus knew that we would need more than bread alone to sustain a meaningful life, so he commanded his disciples to feed his sheep; a reference to a need for spiritual as well as physical sustenance. Our “Feed My Sheep” Program was created to address both the physical and spiritual need to be fed.

As visitors from our surrounding communities join us in our worship services or bible classes who are in need of assistance with getting food, they also have the opportunity to determine if they are eligible to receive assistance with buying groceries. Once an application is completed and approved, individuals receive a grocery store gift card to purchase food products. However, more importantly, they have also had the opportunity to be exposed to lessons that will show them a way that will sustain their lives far more profoundly than any groceries that the gift cards may afford them.
