We currently have six churches in Sampson County that have food distribution ministries, Serenity, Evergreen, Mount Gilead, Piney Grove, Crossroads, Grove Park and one in Duplin County, Warsaw Baptist which has food distribution every month. Together we can make a difference. Food distribution is more than passing out food or handing out bags of groceries it is an opportunity to be like more like Jesus and share the gospel message. Volunteer at any location.
Mission Statement for Food Distribution:
Recognizing that God has blessed us to be a blessing, the Eastern Baptist Association serves as a vehicle to share the overwhelming abundance God has showered on us with those in need in our community. Emergency food is shared with the Love of Christ and respect to those who come for assistance. It is our intention that they receive not only food for their physical hunger, but generous portions of kindness and grace to feed their spiritual and emotional hungers. We believe the words of Jesus that this is one way we can respond directly to God's love for us: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in." Matthew 25:35
