Our mission at The Food Pantry is to love people in need, just where they are and as they are. We come alongside our neighbors who may have stumbled in this race of life and help them get back on their feet. We ‘show the truth by our actions’ and reflect the love we are so freely given to those who are in need.
“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
1 John 3: 18
Our goal is to teach each family in our program how to use coupons to help cut their spending, and use that money on other expenses. We even use coupons to purchase all the items we buy to show the effectiveness of these coupons and how well they can be used.
The Food Pantry meets every Monday at the Men’s Home in Lorain at 7pm. Every third Monday of the month we distribute groceries to families signed up for the Food Pantry.
If you want to get involved in more than shopping, we have people who focus on praying and encouraging each family, people who help organize our coupons and look for sales, those who keep the pantry in order, and serve on our shopping team.
Anyone in the church may volunteer in The Food Pantry ministry, and if you are interested please contact us at the Welcome Center or online.

Matthew 25:35, 37 & 40
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”
