FAITH SERVES LUNCH AT KARM
Therefore let all who are faithful
offer prayer to you;
at a time of distress, the rush of mighty waters
shall not reach them.
You are a hiding place for me;
you preserve me from trouble;
you surround me with glad cries of deliverance. Selah
We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us, and whoever is not from God does not listen to us. From this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
The Lord said to Moses: Speak to the Israelites, and tell them to make fringes on the corners of their garments throughout their generations and to put a blue cord on the fringe at each corner. You have the fringe so that, when you see it, you will remember all the commandments of the Lord and do them, and not follow the lust of your own heart and your own eyes.
Jesus answered, “Have you not read what David did when he and his companions were hungry? He entered the house of God and took and ate the bread of the Presence, which it is not lawful for any but the priests to eat, and gave some to his companions?” Then he said to them, “The Son of Man is lord of the Sabbath.”
The Shepherd of Hope Food Pantry seeks to provide daily bread to equip people for life in Jesus’ name. Daily bread carries all types of meaning: physical nourishment, spiritual guidance and community.
This group visits the men’s shelter to distribute greatly needed items such as t-shirts, underwear, steel-toed work shoes, casual shoes (not athletic shoes) and seasonal items in addition to sharing snacks and fellowship with these men during their transition.
Our Disaster Ministry emphasizes how to prepare ourselves, our families, our church family and our church facility for the most likely disasters that may befall us.
