Serve at the Sacred Heart Soup Kitchen

Sacred Heart Catholic Church serves the food challenged on Sundays at the Sacred Heart Church. We help them the 4th Sunday of each month at 1:00PM. Please plan to participate with us! Contact Darryl Meincke - for details.




One of the ministries of First Baptist is to provide food insecure families in our community with a meaningful amount of food on the third Saturday of each month.

You can help in this effort by bringing in one or more of the items listed below. Items may be dropped off at the Live the Mission Center on Sunday or in the church office during the week.
