We are abundantly blessed in Christ. We don't have to operate a food pantry or any community service project to earn our salvation (because Christ alone has earned it), but we do think that being involved in the community will give us opportunity to tell others about Jesus. So we do good works like a food pantry out of our love for God and out of our desire for others to know that love as well.
Matthew 25:37-40 reads - “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
First Family Church is committed to impacting our community with the gospel and our hope is that a food pantry will give us another opportunity to do that.
The pantry will be open every Saturday from 10am to 11am and it operates at our church property - 3195 Contra Loma Blvd. Feel free to call before you arrive or simply show up within the mentioned time frame.
If you would like to serve in the food pantry or donate to it, please contact the FFC office or Pastor Chris Watson .
In Addition to the pantry, we also send out a team every other week to the homeless in our community - to feed them and to minister to their spiritual needs as well. This ministry was born out of the food pantry and is a great way to also share the love of Christ in serving the disenfranchised. If you'd like to help out with this ministry, please contact the FFC office and ask to be put in contact with Vicki Martinez. The homeless outreach serves the community every 1st, and 3rd Saturday.
