A.M.E.N. Food Pantry Month

May is Food Pantry Month

MLLC has a strong commitment to serving our neighbors in need through food assistance ministry.  Our primary focus is continued support of the A.M.E.N. (Area Ministries for Emergency Needs) Food Pantry.  Every other month we work together to give non-perishable food items and monetary donations to help feed our hungry neighbors.  With many out of work or who are struggling with reduced income, this is an even more important ministry than before.

There are two main ways you can give to A.M.E.N. through MLLC.

  1. You can make a monetary donation.  This can be done by two main avenues.  One is to mail or drop by a monetary gift designated to AMEN.  You can make the check out to MLLC, and we will send all of it to AMEN.  You can use your regular offering envelope to do so.  Another option is to use our secure giving site.  Click this link to go there.  About halfway down the page you will see noted, “Food Pantry – AMEN.” That is where you will note the amount of your gift.
  2. You can also bring your non-perishable food items to the church office.  A large donation box has been placed just inside the main entrance to the sanctuary and office area.  See the sign by the box with the big A.M.E.N. on it.

Together we are fighting hunger and loving our neighbors. Prayerfully consider giving to our county food relief ministry this month and in the future.

Wow! All we can say is, “Wow!” Thanks be to God and to the people of Martin Luther Lutheran Church of Carmine. In 2 short weeks we have easily overtaken our goal for the 2014 Souper Bowl of Caring. And we are not done yet. Week 1 we collected $223.00. Week 2 we collected $505.00. That is a grand total of $728.00 so far for local hunger relief. 100% of the donations will go to our two local food pantries: A.M.E.N. and Fishes & Loaves.

You can still donate to this campaign this week. Please mail in or drop by your donations to the church office.

We are very thankful for our wonderful youth who sponsor this each year. It has been great to see them holding the ‘Soup Pots’ after worship to receive these donations to help our neighbors in need.
