In this video, Bishop Ward gives thanks and lifts up ministries who provide food for those in their communities.
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ.
Summer is a wonderful time for eating: cantaloupes, watermelons, tomatoes, fresh corn, cucumbers, on and on.
There is no ministry more widespread across our annual conference than the ministry of providing food for those who are in need. Thank you for the way your generosity overflows in the community where you serve.
Solid Rock Ministries is a wonderful example of the way in which we engage in ministries of providing food. Through Five N Two, Solid Rock Ministries reclaims food that might be lost. They educate people around nutrition, and they provide food for hundreds of people day by day by day. This generosity certainly gladdens the heart of God. The name of this ministry, Five N Two, recalls the story of a child with a basket, five loaves, and two fishes. Jesus multiplied this gift so that thousands might eat.
Thank you for the ways that your church is generous in gathering and giving food to those who need it, in these summer months and always.
