Food Pantry Ministry Closes Today

Posted by Rick on March 13, 2018

After serving the citizens of Wagoner for more than 9 years, the Food Pantry Ministry has ceased operations, effective today.

Dee Berryhill, the first Food Pantry Ministry Director, builds shelves in our first store-room in 2009.

The Pantry has a long list of faithful volunteers who have worked selfishly to distribute food to the poor. We have seen many, over the years, come to saving faith in Jesus Christ because they were told the Good News while getting food for their family.

It didn’t take long to grow out of space again.

And, of course, we have had our trials, difficulties and challenges. But God has always been faithful.

Volunteers Mary Matthews, Nancy English, and Wanda Nickel up to something in 2009.

The Youth had a canned food drive to support the Food Pantry Ministry in 2010. (L-R) Travis Brown, Matthew Boyd, Audrey (Boyne) Ellis, Tony Boyd, ?, Jacob Mathews, Lori Boyd, ? & Emily Boyne (in pink).

We have been told of many wonderful stories from those whom we have helped over the years.

A busy Food Pantry day early on in 2012.

We have seen God heal many that we prayed for along with many other answered prayers, such as, homes, cars, and jobs.

Everyone who had ever volunteered at the Five Year Celebration.

One of the very last people we served today trusted Jesus for salvation!

Charlie and Linda Cameron.

The volunteers have enjoyed the fellowship of serving alongside others and have enjoyed serving the Lord by serving the people of Wagoner.

Nancy English, Wanda Nickel, Linda & Charlie Cameron in 2011.

The folks whom we served have always been very appreciative of the food that was given.

The volunteers in 2013: Charlie Cameron, Zona Tillman, Barbara Smoot, Linda Cameron, Amanda Montgomery, Richard Krailacek, Audrey Ellis, Sheila McElmurry, Wyatt McElmurry, Nancy English, & Katie Dunn

At the very least, every person who came for food, left with the offer of prayer and an invite to attend church with us. Only a few times in the past 9 years, has anyone refused to be prayed with/for.

On the anniversary of the 9th Year of Service: (at the table) Benny Berend, Linda Cameron, Judi Joy. (Standing L-R) Rufina & Michael Fountain, Zona Tillman, Janet Colbert, Martha Whipple, Sherry, Rohana Weiesnbach, Sandy Laviness, Rick Boyne, Carol Weiesnbach, Jennifer Briggs, Jack Whipple, Tonya, Susie.

A great big “THANK YOU!” to all those who have served over the past 9 years! May God bless you for your faithful service!

Folks who need food can contact:

Wagoner Area Neighbors

100 NE 8th St, Wagoner, OK 74467

Food Pantry Seeks Donations

Posted by sarardavis on March 7, 2012

Alan Feinstein has generously offered to distribute one million dollars across America to help with hunger issues.  For the past two years, the Food Pantry Ministry has received a proportional contribution to assist our ministry. 

Here’s how you can help.  Mr. Feinstein will match contributions made to our food pantry in food or money during the month of March.

At the end of March, we will apply for matching funds from the Feinstein foundation.  It will be awarded proportionately in competition with other food banks across America.  Bring your contributions of canned goods or other groceries to our food pantry or make your checks payable to ISBC Food Pantry Ministry.

If you have any questions please call the church office at 918-485-5115
