Food Pantry Ministry

There are so may ways you can help. We have a food pantry here at the church that is always in need of restocking. If you are not a member of our church but wish to help out anyway, please call our church office at (229) 244-5344 and let them know.

Items needed to keep our food pantry stocked can be found below.

Canned goods


Baby food/Fomula


Personal hygiene items

Toilet paper

Canned pet food

Instant coffee / Tea bags


Canned meats / Fish

Pasta / Jar sauces

Peanut butter

Anything else you can think of that a family may need

to keep them going in their time of need.

Some helpful guidlines in buying these items include:

  • "Use by" date should be well into the future.
  • "Pop top lids" are the best.
  • Consider that some folks may not have a stove or can opener.
  • Strive for "whole" foods that can be eaten "as is".
  • Items should not need refregeration.
  • Thank you all in advance for your generosity and thoughtful care in choosing the items you purchase to donate to the Food Ministry.

    "You shall open your hand wide to your brother/sister, to the poor, and to your needy in your land." Deuteronomy 15:11
