Mission Statement:

Our mission is to provide food and clothing to needy families and individuals in the community.

Program History:

Being committed to helping and serving others, Redeeming Grace began distributing food and clothing in the community to those in need during the holiday seasons, particularly Thanksgiving and Christmas. The church became even more involved with the community through special programs and community events. Closer ties with the community grew and the church realized a greater need for food assistance and in 1995 the Redeeming Grace Church Food Pantry was established.
