Here are some ways you can help:Donate non-perishable food items. No glass containers please.Contribute money to help purchase the fresh food that is added to the baskets. By offering the credit/debit card option, Kindred Lutheran is not encouraging you to incur any debt in order to make donations to the church. If you prefer to give cash, envelopes are available at the Church.
The Food Baskets are a partnership of the Kindred Area Food Pantry and Kindred Area Ministerial Association (KAMA) which includes Bethel & Goshen Moravian Churches; Calvary & Zion United Methodist Churches; Canaan Moravian Church; Christine, Hickson & Walcott Lutheran Churches; Davenport & Norman Lutheran Churches; Kindred Lutheran Church; St Maurice Catholic Church; and West Prairie Free Lutheran Church.
We return to the CROSS which reminds us that Jesus came not to be served but “to serve” (Matthew 20:28). Being servants is our calling as disciples who are obedient to Christ's command, "So if I, your Lord and teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you. Very truly, I tell you, servants are not greater than their Master, nor are messengers greater than the one who sent them” (John 13:14-16). We reach beyond the walls of the church, serving the needy and hurting in our immediate community as well as the world. This is faith active in love.
One in 10 people right here in North Dakota—including more than 1 in 7 children—struggle to put food on the table. Don’t let your struggles go unheard. We want to help!
For some families meal time is the only time they are able to spend together. Meals during the Holidays are especially important. The Kindred Area Ministerial Association (KAMA) and the Kindred Area Food Pantry deliver the ingredients for the holiday meal during Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter to families in Christine, Davenport, Hickson, Kindred, Leonard, Walcott and the surrounding area.
If you are in need of a holiday food basket or would like to suggest a family to receive one, please complete the attached form and send it to Kindred Lutheran Church to the attention of Pastor Andrew or contact the church office at 428-3630.
Your help is vital to feeding the hungry in our midst!
