God’s Bounty Food Pantry
Glen Ellen Community Church has a small food pantry called “God’s Bounty” and it is purposed to provide a food box to those who are in need. While our supplies are limited, we can provide several meals out of a single food box which can help a family out in an emergency. If you would like a food box, simply contact us at 707.996.1479
On the first Sunday of each month, Glen Ellen Community Church collects a benevolence offering from its members and friends for the purpose of assisting those in need in the Glen Ellen Community. These funds are limited, but can be a real help in an emergency situation. Persons desiring assistance can call the church at 707.996.1479
Cup of Water
“Cup of Water” is a ministry of 5 families from Southern California who believe in the work of Glen Ellen Community Church so much that they contribute monthly for the work here. The purpose of this fund is to provide assistance to those in need at the discretion of the pastor. For anyone requiring assistance, please call the church at 707.996.4596.
Thanksgiving Food Boxes
Just before Thanksgiving each year, the members and friends of Glen Ellen Community Church provide food boxes for the needy in and surrounding the Glen Ellen Area. In 2011, we completed 20 food boxes which contained a turkey, fresh vegetables, and all the trimmings. If you would like a food box this next year, please contact Brenda Hill at firstname.lastname@example.org
