Bread of Life Food Pantry
The Food Pantry is committed to distributing food to the underserved of our community on a weekly basis to eradicate the effects of hunger and malnutrition. In addition to distributing food, we provide invaluable information,
resources, news of job opportunities, and referrals to
numerous social services organizations that assist our clients in meeting countless other personal needs. In collaboration with the Greater Chicago Food Depository, and other local donors, we currently distribute food to more than 200 families weekly. Based on Matthew 25:34-41, this ministry evangelizes and provides community resources as well.
Responsible for all aspects of Evangelism, which is the joyous witness of the Body of Christ to the unsaved. This Ministry spreads the message of God’s redeeming love, which urges repentance and reconciliation to God and each other through faith in Jesus Christ. The objectives are to seek believers who are empowered by the Holy Spirit and incorporated into the church for worship, fellowship, nurture, and engagement as disciples in God’s mission of evangelization and liberation within society and creation. This includes all outreach activities, in-house evangelistic training and information, and is the umbrella for the Bread of Life Food Pantry and Fishes and Loaves Ministries.
