In Matthew 25:35 Jesus reminds us of our duty to help those in hunger. For this reason the church is proud to sponsor our Helping Hands Community Pantry. To do this work we are partnered with the Capitol Area Food Bank in Austin. Below is a chart that shows the work we had a part in during 2015.
This is the statement from the Capital Area Food Bank:
