God continues to bless the Community Pantry (CP) Ministry with some exciting changes. After 2 1/2 years at Don Julian Elementary School, we will be moving the Community Pantry to our Evergreen SGV church campus starting on August 7th, 2015. In partnership with the LA Food Bank, we will continue to provide food for the greater Don Julian/La Puente community's physical needs on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month.
With the move to Evergreen SGV, we feel God's calling to meet the spiritual needs of the people through more opportunities to share HIs word and develop more personal relationships. We praise God for Pastors Rudy and Tanya Paniagua and their VIDA Church to share in Evergreen SGV's Outreach vision and their support to the CP ministry to "Reach the Unreached" in the community. In Matthew 28:19 it says, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." We are excited to see how God uses the CP ministry to grow His Kingdom.
We give thanks to Don Julian Elementary School and the Bassett Unified School District for their hospitality and support to Evergreen's CP Ministry. God is Good!
