Mt Pleasant Baptist Church (located here in Helena) opens up a food pantry on the 2nd Saturday of every month for Helena residents in need. Orelia Thornton of Mt Pleasant Baptist will be visiting our worship service this Sunday. Christ Community will begin partnering with Mt Pleasant by donating quarterly to the pantry. Please bring nonperishable food items and place them in the boxes in the foyer on August 19. The following are especially needed items: tuna, Vienna sausages, chili, baked beans, Knorr pasta/rice sides, Quaker box oatmeal, jelly, canned sweet peas, and Quaker variety oatmeal.
This will be an ongoing ministry opportunity for our church to partner with another local church to serve the hungry in/around Helena. For information about the pantry, please contact Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church.
