During these continued days of quarantine, several churches are offering online worship opportunities, outdoor car services, virtual small group Bible studies and grab-and-go meals. The True Love Church of Humble is giving back to the community through several means; one of these ways is through the Grab-and-Go lunch program for school-aged children.
Pastor Eric Nacy stated, “The beauty in life is found in giving and seeing lives turned around. We at True Love Christian Church of Humble serve in a way that enriches lives. This is done through several means, including this food program which feeds souls, our growing online community, child care center, and our after-school program.”
This church has decided that even though several states, businesses and organizations have begun the process of opening their doors, this congregation is continuing to show love to those in need through feeding with food and providing a message of both love and grace.
The lunch program location where they are passing out food on a daily basis is 40 Wilson Road. For families with children in need, this is just one of the many ways that the church is a light in the community.
The Grab-and-Go program goal is to give out at least 200 lunches per day. Those in need of food are asked to fill out the Grab-and-Go Lunch Form found online at tlchumble.org/grabandgomeals. Simply specify contact information, number of meals needed with names and ages, approximate time of pickup, and ways that members of this church may offer up prayers on the recipients’ behalf.
Another reason residents are encouraged to fill out the form is to indicate a willingness to become a program volunteer. Volunteers are encouraged to help local friends and neighbors while adhering to the social-distancing order and parameters.
All funds received by the program will be used to purchase supplies to keep the program fun and safe for children ages 18 and under. This program is free to all recipients, regardless of income or family situation.
Nacy added, “There is truly a need for these services and more within our community. So many people come hungry for food, others come hungry for the Word of God. These people continue to come to our church faithfully to serve and grow the community of believers in Christ Jesus.”
