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. 


Then I realized that it is good & proper for a man to eat & drink, & to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him—for this is his lot. Moreover, when God gives any man wealth & possessions, & enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot & be happy in his work—this is a gift of God.    Ecclesiastes 5:18-19

Our national Labor Day holiday began in the late nineteenth century to celebrate the significance of workers, their achievements & the collective contributions of all labor to our nation’s economic & social strength & well-being. In the beginning, God gave Adam & Eve the responsibilities of working & caring for Eden’s garden. No work is too small or insignificant; each worker contributes to the vitality of living & service to community. In whatever occupation we work, may we have renewed purpose, strength & vision in the honor of our service to God, our community & our world.
