Psalm 41:1-3


1  Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
 

2  The Lord will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.

 

3 The Lord will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou will make all his bed in his sickness.

Food Pantry

Our Food Pantry is expanding. We have a partnership with Panera Bread for a weekly corporate donation to our pantry of assorted breads, pastries, and cookies/brownies.

 

As we are adding sponsors and expanding, we will be in need of Drivers to help with our program. This does require a valid and current state issued driver's license.

 

If you are interested in helping, please submit your interest via our Contact Us form. Thank you for your willingness to serve! May God's blessings be upon you.

Do You Need Help?

If you are homebound, disabled, or low-income and in need of assistance. Please contact Ms. Hope Davis via the Contact Us form with your information.

 

We are able to provide groceries through our on-going Food Pantry. In addition, we are able to provide some blankets, clothing and toys for individuals/ families who are struggling.

MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS

The Holiday Meals program is the perfect opportunity for you to serve the less fortunate.

 

We have Volunteer opportunities to help during the week prior to and specifically on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning in organizing the food carryout containers, cooking the food, plating and delivering the meals to our clients.

 

Gather your family and friends and experience that special feeling when you deliver a holiday meal to someone less fortunate.

 

Our Volunteers come year after year to be a part of this special ministry. (Then Kansas-elect) U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids (D-KS) came out to volunteer with us on the morning of Thanksgiving Day 2018; and, in 2012, we had U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) and his wife join to help us with the Thanksgiving Holiday Meals.  Over the years, we have welcomed the support of many political and civic leaders who've volunteered their time and efforts to help our mission. 

 

We'd love to have you and your family join us on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning to help seniors and struggling families receive a hot home-prepared Holiday Meal.

 

Will you make the United Prayer Movement's Holiday Meal Program part of your family tradition? Join with our family of Volunteers for years to come!

 

Please submit your information on our Contact Us form and we can get you started on this wonderful journey!
