Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. - Matthew 11:28-29
Earlier this year our Pastor felt a strong calling to help those who serve our country. Statistics show that 25% of all military seek food aid. There are many reasons why many military families struggle. For active duty, pressures include low pay, difficulty for spouses to hold steady jobs amid base transfers and deployments, and the higher costs of living in some states. We at Carpenters House Ministries want to help the men, women, and their families who give up so much for our beautiful country. We have an abundance of produce, meat, dairy, baked good, and much more. If you have a little bundle of joy we also have diapers we are giving out. We would love to bless those serving our country and their families.
Not only do we want to provide assistance when it comes to food and diapers but we are also here to support the military families while their loved one is away as well. Deployed military members leave behind spouses, children and parents who have to maintain life as usual. They are often left to settle into a new community without the support of local family and friends. At Carpenters House Ministries we are a family, and are here too love, encourage and help you in any way we can along this journey.
