Milestone! – Over 10,000 Free Meals Served to Our Community in 2013!
“Come to me all you who are weak and burdened and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28
America is a wonderfully blessed country. We have enough food and opportunity to go around. But some miss out and go hungry. 20% of children in Pennsylvania do not know where their next meal will come from. Food security is a problem for many in our community.
People come to Central Church who haven’t eaten for days. Some have been out of work for years and don’t expect to find work anytime soon. They have no money. They’ve run out of benefits. They feel that life will only get worse. They are hungry and need someone to care, and the numbers of the hungry coming to us continue to increase as we move through 2014.
Every meal that we serve is hot, nutritious, and wholesome. A warm welcome and a promise from God go a long way to life a heavy heart. When someone knows how much God cares, they don’t feel lonely and powerless anymore.
Please join us to care for those in hard times. Your gifts meet desperate needs for food, and you pave the way for hurting people to be blessed. We want everyone coming through our doors to know that they need not face their problems alone.
There is hope because you care and because God loves the brokenhearted and longs to lift them up. Donations can be made through the mail or in person at Central Church, or simply click on the Give link at the top of the page to make an online gift.
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30
This is our prayer for everyone who walks through our door – providing hope for new life.
