General Baptist Church God's House of Prayer
Living in God's Amazing Grace,
Doing Together What We Cannot Do Alone
We have combined our Blessing Box Ministry and our Saturday Family Meal Distribution into one effort we are calling Feeding Fairborn. We believe the Bible instructs us not only to love our neighbors, but to look after their physical needs as well, as best we can. We have focused our efforts on feeding those around us.
On Saturdays from 4-6pm, folks come and pick up free meals that they have ordered through our website, during the previous week. Typically the type of food that is served is “southern home cooking with tried and true family recipes.” You will never catch any of our cooks paying much attention to fat content, calories, or salt.
We have found that some folks need the help of a family meal, while others just need a change of pace from their own cooking. Either way, we are more than happy to help out, and no one is ever turned away. Our real focus is the opportunity to love our neighbors.
Our Blessing Box is a small way to help those in our community that struggle to meet the daily necessities of life. This little food pantry is located in front of the church and is accessible to anyone that might find themselves in need of food, personal hygiene items, or the Word of God. It is restocked several times per week by volunteers at the church as well as people stopping by leaving donations from the community.
If you wish to drop off a nonperishable unopened food or personal hygiene items, you may do so day or night at your convenience directly into the blessing box.
Financial donations are accepted and encouraged. The church puts great effort into seeing that each dollar provides as many items as possible. Special relationships with venders, bulk orders and bulk pricing means the church can provide more with less money than the average shopper at the local grocery store. All of the donations received for Feeding Fairborn goes to supply the blessing box, or make family meals to distribute on Saturdays. That means that 100% of your donation provides food and personal hygiene items to those that need it most in our community.
(The scriptures in the Blessing Box are furnished by church members.)
