The Food Pantry
This ministry exists to demonstrate the love of Christ by praying, listening, caring and providing for people in need. We mainly provide groceries for the homeless, indigent and low-income families of Tuolumne County.
The pantry is available at the Sierra Bible Church office Tuesday through Thursday from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Walk-in clients will meet with a support facilitator for a needs assessment as a part of providing services to meet their individual needs. For more information about the Food Pantry, contact the church office (email or 532-1381 x107). If you have donations of non-perishable food, you can drop off your donations at the church office during the week.
The goal of this program is to connect people who have needs with people who can meet those needs through the use of an email matching program. A person who is in need of a ride to church or the doctor, needs a refrigerator or washer and dryer, needs some financial advice or a listening ear, can email that need to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once a week, the list of needs will be emailed to all those on the SBC email list. If someone is willing to meet that need, then contact information will be shared. This is a great opportunity to take what you have and share it with others. For more information, contact Nate Levering (532-1381 x107). To help with general needs, we accept grocery/gas cards in $25 denominations.
Food For Thought
Weekly outreach providing meals to the homeless in our community. We also continue to collect new/used candles and canisters of white gas (Coleman camp fuel) for distribution. Food items such as bottled water, fruit cups or drinks, bagged chips and snack bars are helpful. In addition, there is a smaller group that meets weekly for fellowship, Bible study and laundry at the Laundromat, which has created laundry soap as an ongoing need. For more info, contact Pastor Nate.
