ROCK OF HELP FOOD PANTRY
“AND WE URGE YOU, BROTHERS, ADMONISH THE IDLE, ENCOURAGE THE FAINTHEARTED, HELP THE WEAK, BE PATIENT WITH THEM ALL.” – 1 THESSALONIANS 5:14
Established in April of 2012, Ebenezer’s Rock of Help Food Pantry serves many in need in the community – offering groceries and other items as they are available. The Food Pantry is open from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM on the 3rd Saturday of every month, and is just one of the ways Ebenezer delivers on its promise to boldly love and serve the community.
“HE SAID TO HIM THE THIRD TIME, ‘SIMON, SON OF JOHN, DO YOU LOVE ME?’…JESUS SAID TO HIM, ‘FEED MY SHEEP.'” – JOHN 21:17
Since 1998, Ebenezer has worked alongside other local churches to provide hot meals to the needy in the greater community. What began as a partnership among 4 United Methodist churches has become an interdenominational mission to serve and love those in need. Ebenezer provides a hot meal to guests on the second Monday of every month.
“FOR EVEN THE SON OF MAN CAME NOT TO BE SERVED BUT TO SERVE, AND TO GIVE HIS LIFE AS A RANSOM FOR MANY.” – MARK 10:45
CAMP HOPE is a non-profit organization that repairs housing for elderly, physically challenged and low income families in and around Allegany County, Maryland.
