Each week a group of volunteers meet at Life Church to organize, pack and deliver food that will be placed in the backpacks of students who have been indentified as being at risk of going hungry. Each student is given enough food to get them through the weekend.
Twice each week we have volunteers that help with our benevolnece ministry. They meet with inidividuals who come by the church seeking help with utilities, food, and other assistance. During each interview we share the message of Jesus' love, offer additonal counseling, while assessing their need and how Life Church may be able to help.
