…Serving Others

Scott, Gary, Monty, and I just got back from taking over 100 bags of food (we lost count) from our food drive here at Eastridge to the Solid Rock Food Pantry on Brown Bridge Road. It was an amazing thing to see what our people have accomplished. When we first opened the huge, cavernous trailer that we’re storing the food in, it didn’t look like a lot of food. But once we started to bring it out and load it up, we filled the bed of Gary’s truck easily, and we filled up the bed of Michelle’s truck with the rest.

Driving over there, Scott said, “I can’t think of anything better to do today than this.” It did all of our hearts good to go over there, see the gratefulness in Jack, the director or the Food Bank, and load up all this food that will benefit so many needy people in our community. We took a tour of the facility and learned about the way the Food Bank operates; it was interesting to see how they do what they do.

I am humbled by what the people of Eastridge are doing in these tough times. Our people have stepped up and shared God’s blessings with those who need to be blessed the most. The heart of our church is simply astounding.
