meet the ANGEL MINISTRY @ The Community

Hello Community family –

We want you to meet the ANGEL FOOD MINISTRY. Recently we entered into a partnership with Southside Community Action here in a Martinsville to provide this ministry to folks in our community who are hungry and who need food at reduced prices. Go take a look

Our partnership actually begins this weekend with the first food being delivered on Saturday morning between 8 and 10am for those who have already purchased boxes. Southside Community Action is an organization seeking to help people here in Henry County who are hurting and in need. It has been a natural partnership as we have worked together helping those who are homeless.

Leading this ministry here at The Community will be Robin Martin along with her husband Mike. Their family became a part of our church only a few months ago, but they jumped right in serving no long after they arrived.

How can you be involved?

1. Volunteers are need on food distribution day which is the 3rd Saturday of each month from 7:30 until 10am (this allows us to help feed people 3 Saturdays every month now).

2. Purchase these food boxes for yourself or for others. You can do that but at this time you would choose the Chatham location making note of a pick up in Collinsville (hoping in July to have an actually link to our site). It can also be purchased up until about the 10th of each month by calling Southside Community Action's office at 276-666-0313. They can also be purchased for the following month at on the distribution here at church. The beauty of this is that food stamps, cash, check or even credit/debit cards can be used to buy the boxes of food.

Want more information? Call the church for general information at 276-647-8231 of via email You can also talk with Robin Martin by calling 276-358-0655 or by email to

This is one more way we are "demonstrating the love of God to our community" by feeding the hungry. Step up and help us make this program successful.

PS — we are already serving 50 families this month through Angel Food Ministry. More to come!
