Meeting the Needs of Our Community

Church Member on May 01, 2020

Sometimes, watching the news these days gets to me. Does it you? There is so much bad news and people are just barely scraping by and really hurting. Has the thought occurred to you, what can one person do to make any difference in a global crisis like this? Sometimes just having an idea of when and where to participate helps me get going! Well, Kimberly Moorse, our church administrator at Westbrook, has an idea for us!

The Bountiful Basket is the local food shelf and they provide food to people who live in Eastern Carver County. Their services are in high demand right now and the organization needs non-perishable food. Kimberly thought it would be a great idea if the church could collect and deliver food goods – dried items (crackers, pasta, rice, etc.) and canned goods to the Bountiful Basket in May.

If you would like to participate, you may drop off non-perishable food goods at the church office Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon and Kimberly will deliver all the food goods collected during the week to the Bountiful Basket on Fridays. If you would like to donate, but are unable to deliver the food to the church office, please email Kimberly Moorse at kimberly.moorse@westbrook.cc.

Thank you for being a part of helping the needs in our greater community with love, kindness, prayers, laundry supplies, face shields and food! Together, we act as the hands and feet of Jesus when we do these things. ‘I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink….Then the King will say, “I’m telling you the solemn truth; Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me -- you did it to me.”’ (Matthew 25:36-40).
