Update May 18, 2020

Today (Monday, May 18th) we will once again be at The Lake of the Woods Church and Living Water Community Clinic (32345 Constitution Hwy) distributing food boxes from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. to families who need assistance. Today’s distribution will cover two weeks’ worth of food. Next Monday is Memorial Day and we will not be distributing food that day. I encourage families who could use assistance to visit one of our two drop off locations today. Please pass this on to others that may need assistance. I want to personally thank those who have donated food or made financial contributions to this ministry. Because of your generosity, we have been able to offer hope to many families during this difficult time. On behalf of those families, thank you!
 

Some have asked if we will continue the food distribution ministry during the summer months. My answer is, if there is a need and we have the means to meet that need, we will be there serving in Christ’s name. The Lake of the Woods Church and our Free Medical Clinic, Living Water Community Clinic, desires to share love, hope, and support to our neighbors as we follow the example of our Savior. We love you, and we are so thankful for being able to serve such a wonderful community!

Update May 15, 2020

Thank you, everyone, for your donations, both monetary and food. This coming Monday, May 18th we will be giving out food boxes to cover both this come week and the following Memorial Day Week. In other words, we will be giving out two weeks’ worth of food this coming Monday. If you are out picking up groceries this weekend, please consider picking up a few extra items for the “Outside the Box” feeding ministry. The items we are specifically in need of are:
 
*cans of soup
*tunafish
*pancake Mix
*Syrup
*Mac N Cheese
*Cereal
*Pasta
*Spaghetti Sauce
*Taco kits
*Snacks
*Cookies
*Bread
*Family Size Bags of Chips
*Ice Pops
 

We ask that you have the food dropped off at the church by 10:00 AM Monday, May 18th so we can get the food packed for pickup later that day. Thank you again, everyone, for contributing as we continue to bless those in our community in need at this time.

 
So that we can continue this ministry, donations are needed. Giving is the greatest need right now to provide for the purchase of food. Right now, we cannot accept food from someone’s home pantry. And to honor the government’s request for keeping gatherings small we will handle volunteering at the locations internally.
We have set up a line item in our online giving specifically for this feeding. Please go to https://lowchurch.givingfire.com/ and using the drop down box named “Fund” please click “Community Outreach.”
 
We continue to thank you for the support and prayers as we come together for those in need.
