Bread House Week 76

Two members of the Searcher’s Sunday School class came to the Bread House this week for food. The Bread House volunteers were happy to provide food for them while the Searcher’s class provided food for their souls!

Pictured are Charles and Monica, who are regular Friday visitors at The Bread House.   They pick up food for themselves and Monica’s sister.  Charles is disabled and has several medical issues.  Each Friday, when they get food, they always ask for our volunteers to pray for them.  Our volunteers develop relationships with the individuals and families that we serve.  The Bread House is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm.  Please drop by to see us in action!
