SPECIAL THANK YOU (LETTER) FROM THE LORD'S PANTRY AT TRINITY METHODIST CHURCH

The Lord's Pantry of Trinity United Methodist Church would like to thank you for your continued support of our ministry. Your generous donations of many, many food items during the holiday season were greatly appreciated and helped many peple in our community. We are truly thankful for your thoughtfulness and caring.

We are currently providing food to approximately 1,200 people every month. We could not continue to provide this basic necessity without the on-going support of our community, and we truly appreciate your generosity. Thank you for joining us to fight food insecurity in the Hackettstown area.

STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT: Luke 6:20-21 - "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you shall be satisfied." The Beatitudes are largely about emptiness. If you are poor, your pockets are empty. If you are hungry, your stomach is empty. If you are mourning, there's an emptiness in your heart that used to be filled with the presence of a loved one. Jesus assures us in each case that the Lord will fill our emptiness. That assurance gives us peace and courage to follow the Lord faithfully.
