MercyWorks Program

The MercyWorks Program serves an average of 100-120 households each and every week. Formerly known as The Food Pantry, MercyWorks was given its name because we are witnesses each day to God’s mercy working in our lives. As Lamentations 3:22-23 reminds us: the Lord’s mercies never cease, “they are new every morning.” So as witnesses to God’s mercy working, we know that mercy works!

We provide our neighbors with fresh and non-perishable food items, as well as hygiene items. Through our partnership with local restaurants and grocery stores, we have the privilege of providing fresh meat and produce each week along with bakery items to go with the usual non-perishable items.

During check-in participants are asked for prayer requests that staff and volunteers pray for each week. We have also been able to start offering pastoral counseling and prayer support provided by Blue Ridge Christian Counseling to our participants.

Our food pantry is currently open to the public on Thursdays, 12:00pm until 1:00pm. We offer a curbside service through our back alley for those driving to us. For those in our neighborhood who are walking to us, we offer a walk-up service on our front porch. In addition to Thursdays, our food pantry is also open by appointment only on Wednesdays, 10:00am until 1:00pm.

We have also recently opened up a clothing closet we call The Blessing Shop at a local church to provide our neighbors with seasonal clothing.
