Second Street Pantry was established as a community outreach program by just a few church members in 2011. Today, it serves hundreds of community residents facing food insecurity each and every month. We hope that every person who enters our doors feels welcomed, is fed, and experiences the love of Christ through our volunteers. We pray that all who enter leave with a sense of hope and love. Second Street Pantry is located on the church premises.

GOD’S COMFORT AND JOY
When I said, “My foot is slipping,” Your love, O LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, Your consolation brought joy to my soul. Psalm 94:18-19
Let My consolation—My comfort—bring joy to your soul. When anxiety is welling up within you, come to Me & pour out your heart. Then sit quietly in My Presence while I comfort you, helping you see things from My perspective. I remind you of your heavenly destination . . . I infuse My joy & peace into your heart, mind & soul. When you are joyful, this changes the way you view the world around you. Even though you see much darkness, you can also see the Light of My Presence continuing to shine. Moreover, the joy in your soul gives you buoyancy, enabling you to rise above the countless problems in your life. Once you have gained this perspective, you will discover that you can comfort others in the midst of their troubles.
