It is in this spirit that many of our churches operate and maintain Food Pantries. These ministries are a direct reflection of Jesus’s observation, “”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 answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'” (Matt 25:37, 40).
We’re rightfully proud of our people and the care they show for those in their own communities and we’ve created a video to highlight the results of all their hard work. We’re also hoping it will encourage others to participate in this or other direct outreach missions. Way to go, New Hope!
