Feed My Starving Children

On October 25, we took a group of 28 members and friends to FMSC in Coon Rapids. We had a great time and wonderful results:
    102 volunteers,
    143 boxes packed,
    30,888 meals packed.
Enough to feed 84 children for a year

Thanks to all who participated!


“The Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and will remind you of all that I have said to you.” (John 14:26)

The season of Pentecost is a season of growth and application. After learning and celebrating what God has done for us we learn to live our faith and apply it to our daily lives. Please join us as we learn together.

We invite you to become acquainted with our congregation through our web site. Better yet, come and visit us. We would enjoy meeting you and sharing the love of Christ with you. If you have spiritual concerns or prayer requests, please click here.

Outreach Thought: Can This World Be Fed?

Everything I know and understand causes me to come down on the optimistic side of this question. It can be done. Not easily. Not inexpensively. Certainly not without some changes. But it can be done.

It is not the way that is lacking. It is the will. The more you understand about basic causes of hunger in the world today, the more you cannot avoid the conclusion that God has given man and the earth the capacity to conquer and control it.

If we treated all humanity with the dignity and love they are due as the offspring of God, if we acted toward our environment as its caretakers and not its ravishers, if we viewed the mandate to “tend and dress” the earth as the Creator’s order to us, all people could live together in peace and the earth would bring forth its abundance.


Anything short of that is the result of man’s sin—his sin against God, against his fellow man, against his environment.

It is history. And it is prophecy. If we have the capacity to relieve suffering and save life—and we do—and refuse to do it, that will undoubtedly be a part of our judgment.
