Hunger Relief

Did you know that 200,000 of our neighbors right here in
Central Virginia don’t know the source of their next meal?

And some 795 million of our neighbors around the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about 1 in 9 people on earth! Those statistics can be staggering – particularly when we remember that each one of those numbers is a person – a person who is not only hungry – but a person who may very well be without any hope. And Jesus said, “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink…{because} I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

Through this offering we will join together with churches across Richmond and the US in making a difference in the lives of some of “the least of these.” 25% of the funds received will go to support our partnership with Moments of Hope and will be used to provide food and needed hygiene supplies to those who are homeless. The next 25% of the funds received will go to FeedMore to minister to other local needs, and the remaining 50% will go to Global Hunger Relief. Please pray and ask the Lord to show you what He would have you give to help provide food for the hungry.

Our goal this year is $17,500. That would be the largest hunger offering we have ever brought. Please pray about what God would have you give. Our neighbors – locally – and globally – are counting on us!
