The Story of our Food Pantry

Our long time dream has become a reality. Led by the Outreach Committee, our congregation has always participated in activities to help those in need, but longed for a way to help those in our community directly.

In May 2015, our parishioner, Cardie Mortimer, generously donated the funds to  renovate our kitchen in honor of his parents, Charles and Elisabeth Mortimer. The kitchen was dedicated in October and now includes a food pantry to store goods for those in need.
