Bound by Faith
A Note From Pastor Heidi
Did you know that in Texas 4,320,050 people struggle with hunger? 1,713,430 of those are children. And right here in Travis County over 16% of its residents face hunger.
Central Christian Church’s members have always been so extremely generous when it comes to tackling hunger and loving our neighbors in that manner. So, I am thrilled to share the opportunity for us to partner with Petite Pantry. Petite Pantry was inspired by the Little Free Pantry in Arkansas as a way to provide an additional food source for our neighbors in a discreet and easily accessible manner. What is even more exciting is that CCC will be the first pantry location in Austin! Together we will fill the pantry which will be located in our back garden area and then those in need will take what they need. More details to come on all of the logistics as we are going to be the pioneers in this process so please be patient with us as we may have to try difference avenues to see what works best for us as well as the needs of those we will be serving. What can you do now? Begin bringing non-perishable food items and place them in the RED box outside of the prayer room/community room area. Once our pantry is installed in the next few weeks then we will be ready and able to stock it!
Just as Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as yourself”. Together we really are able to share our love right here in our very own community in a new and direct way
