Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality, as it is written: "He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little did not have too little." 2 Corinthians 8:13-15
"The King will reply,'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' Matthew 25:40
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7
This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 2 Corinthians 9:12

This church congregation is wonderful and definitely a great example ref. helping others, especially since I'm sure this is not one of the GIGANTIC church/cults in town.
Sure would be nice if ol' Rod Parsley would dig down into his deep pockets and do something like this when he's on TV, asking for money all the time. Every time I pass some of these absolutely HUGE churches, I can't help but think hmm... how many little houses could be helped with the money it took to build this palatial church?

I just want to thank 10tv for airing our interview. You interviewed us on Saturday. Right after service on Sunday, a man (who wanted to remain anonymous) came in and told us that after he'd seen us on t.v. he wanted to make a donation and asked us if he could go to the grocery store and pick up a few items and drop them off in an hour. He came back with his s.u.v. filled with groceries for our food pantry! And Brandee has been contacted about a job offer! We are sure that we will help more people than we did last Saturday too, because of the advertising you allowed us. Just because we are christians, doesn't mean we won't suffer at times. But God is very real and very present in our lives and we have hope in Him and are able to overcome in Him. On behalf of Brice United Methodist Church, we thank you for helping us get the word out about our food pantry.

I am the auntie of Toya and Wayne Daugherty who were in your story about the food pantry at Brice Church. Can I say how proud I am that they are using their God given talents to serve the Lord by serving the community in and around Brice Church.Bless you for doing the story and bless them for filling a need that was not being filled.
Amen

The Brice Food Pantry has been in existence for about 6 months. It has helped dozens of families in these hard times. The food bank has welcomed Brice as a participant, allowing the pantry to reach even more people. Church Members, church groups and event those the pantry have helped, are volunteering to see others helped. Still, the pantry has to be creative to raise money to keep the stock up as well as raise awareness to those still in need. We all hope and pray for prosperity to come again to our cities and towns, but until they do, is it not a blessing to know that their are still those who care to share whatever they can.

I wish I can say that "unrepentant" was right on the mark, and I invite him to help serve in the Food Pantry at Brice on Saturday Monrings at 9 am to 12 pm. But it is not a "teach to fish" but "no pond to fish at." I have worked in the pantry and had the privilage to meet the "clients". Not all are un-educated or lazy by any means. Most of the client have been hit hard by recession or job loss or abandonment. They are proud Americans who have humbly come to this treacherous season in their lives. What they found at the Brice Food Pantry is a "friend" that cares and groceries to survive the storm. Most "clients" dont want to be there and would wish they did not have to do this. Personally, I am glad that they did have courage to let us help them. I know that in time, most will not need this help, but maybe they can pay forward in kindness what was given to them in this season.
