Praise Community Fellowship

believes in Jesus’ teaching on helping the poor.

 

Matthew 25:34-40 

 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?  When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Currently PCF is involved in the TWIGS summer lunch program for children. This ministry is led by Faye Heuchert. Faye and her volunteers pack and bring lunches to two local neighborhoods in the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon area. Faye also heads up our weekend lunch program during the school year. We are always happy to have more volunteers sign up to help with this awesome ministry. If you would like more information or would like to volunteer one time to see if you would enjoy this ministry, you can call Faye Heuchert at 618-444-5650 or you can sign up for a trial by going to our Volunteer sign-up calendar.
