Where We Are

Food Pantry

Food Pantry Ministry

Join with SkyPointe to serve the community through the Food Pantry on first Saturdays and third Sundays each month. Each week, we restock with items from the Harvest Hope Food Bank. We need help in transporting items from Harvest Hope to SkyPointe – It’s a great way to get some exercise each week! Please contact Ellen if you can help (contact info below).                                                  Every dollar of your cash donation buys about a pound of food for the Pantry via Harvest Hope and other wholesale sources! There is a donation jar in the café if you can contribute.                                   If you prefer to donate food items, please drop off donations in the foyer.                                    

Contact Ellen Contois, econtois@gmail.com864-770-3830, if you are interested in being involved in this ministry. Would you consider serving one date per month or one date every other month?

Thank you for your support!

Jesus says:
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’  Matthew 25:40
We respond:
The SkyPointe Church Food Pantry’s mission is to share the love of Jesus by providing physical food as well as spiritual nourishment to those who are hungry and in need. From the moment a client enters the food pantry they are met by a smiling face at the reception table. After they have checked in they meet one-on-one with a volunteer who reviews their information and prays with them. They are then escorted to the food area where they receive a bag of canned, dry, and frozen food items.
