Flowing from our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ both here and abroad, the Benevolent Ministry of Northside Baptist Church operates a food pantry for local families in need. Located on the west side of our church campus, the Northside Food Pantry welcomes guests on Wednesday evenings from 6 PM to 8 PM and Friday mornings from 10 AM to 12:00 PM. For new pantry guests, we ask that they bring a state issued ID for any household members over 18 and a birth certificate (not SS card) for legal dependents under the age of 18. Service is provided to our pantry guests three (3) times during a 12-month period (based upon the first date guests register).
In addition to food, our guests are also welcome to look through and select from the clothing and household items that have been donated to the pantry. While waiting for their food baskets to be prepared, one of Northside’s Prayer Partners will sit down with our pantry guests to discuss their needs, share information about other services available in the area, and offer to pray with them.
Northside Baptist Church is grateful for our corporate sponsors and those in the community that have chosen to donate to our Benevolent Ministry and we eagerly look forward to sharing from God’s abundant blessings. [NOTE: We are not able to offer any form of cash assistance at this time].
