Our ministry is to help the families in the Orchard Park area and supply food where there is an emergency food need.
Individuals needing assistance must meet certain Food Bank guidelines for continued help or be under Pastoral care. Although our ministry is only a supplement to food supply needs, we can also direct you to other areas of assistance, and will offer you prayer and encouragement as well for the needs that are expressed to us.
Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets are offered for those in need from our community, church family and the clients signed up at food pantry. All should meet the threshold of being in need.
Those who are looking to volunteer or youth needing community service hours are welcome to assist in our Food Pantry with cleaning, stocking, serving, food pick-ups, and other special projects. Come and be a witness, and put your faith in action!
The Pantry is open on Wednesday 11:00am – 4:00pm in the Activity Center.

The purpose of COVnet is to create and recognize a ‘network of networks’ of both churches and ministries.
It is our desire to foster relationships and partnerships between leaders and ministries. We have come together to strengthen and encourage leaders, provide ordination to ministry, and to recognize the credentials of men and women who are affiliated with local congregations, networks, and trans-congregational ministries.
The primary focus of COVnet is specifically to create and recognize groups of ministers who will relate to one another on the basis of covenant. Through the recognition and creation of strong covenantal relationship we can therefore provide mutual support, encouragement and accountability. The founding leaders of COVnet have made public their covenant with one another.
COVnet is a family of ministers that is committed to the historic confessions of Christian faith. It is also committed to the Pentecostal/Charismatic dimension of Christianity and the contemporary movement of the Holy Spirit.
