Pre-packaged grocery distribution is done with minimal contact

In addition to our standard non-perishable groceries, we offer optional items which vary by week including meat, dairy and produce.

Please observe our modified food distribution procedures which are in effect during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Clients should come into the parking lot and remain in their cars. They will be greeted and informed about the process. We are limiting any possible contact between the volunteers and our clients to protect everyone from the coronavirus. Packages will be brought out. Food Pantry volunteers are not permitted to load packages to the interior of client cars. Please bring someone with you if you are unable to place packages in your car.

At Messiah, our mission is to be a place where hard questions can be asked, the healing power of love experienced and the joy of worship celebrated. We believe that God is made known in the world through our relationships with each other . . . the true connections of real people in real life. We are on a journey that we invite you to join, knowing that we will be changed by your presence. We welcome that chance to know you and to love you. And together to live Jesus’ commandment to not be afraid.
