LBC Food Pantry
Our church has a small Food Pantry located in its office building. We deliver food from our pantry to several homes on a weekly basis, and we also keep food on hand for those in our community who stop in to utilize the Food Pantry. We typically send out a list of items needed to restock our pantry each month, so contact the church office if you're interested in donating!
Linworth is a partnering church with My Village Ministries, a local ministry that comes alongside families in crisis, welcoming the isolated into a Christ-centered community. Host Families host the children of a family in crisis for a few days, weeks, or months while Family Coaches come alongside the parent(s) to provide resources and support. The church wraps around both the Host Family and the family in crisis to provide community and care. There is always a great need for more Linworth Host Families and Family Coaches. If you're interested in learning more about this ministry, contact the church office.
