Second Street Pantry Mission

Second Street Pantry

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 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.

BEGINNING AGAIN

But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind & straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.  Philippians 3:13-14

Many of us have seen our resolutions of a few weeks ago crash & burn, leaving us in despair among the dust & ash. Be encouraged: God willingly offers His grace & power for our next chance! Our Scripture offers some helpful guidelines:

  • Forget our failed attempts of the past & live in today Think about tomorrow when it becomes today. Live in the present.
  • Focus on one issue, habit, activity, or resolution to change or implement.
  • View setbacks as temporary detours & follow God back on track. Detours are not dead ends; they always lead back to the main avenue.
  • Pray, rely on God alone & review these guidelines daily.

As God’s children, let’s put our hands in His, walking our baby steps daily. We will stumble & sometimes fall, but we don’t have to stay down. We will be amazed at where baby steps take us!
