Our little free pantry is up and running! You can pick up or drop off food any time. In case the pantry is full and you still want to drop off, you can leave things on the office porch and we’ll add in when there’s space. Thanks to Marigold for the beautiful and inspiring decoration, Tiffany for finding the pantry, and to the team checking on the pantry to make sure it’s running smoothly! Looking forward to this tangible reminder of Jesus’ words in Matthew 25:35, “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...” ...

Lord, in the same way that we lifted up other victims of violence like Jacob Blake and George Floyd, we lift up the two Los Angeles County deputies who were shot this past weekend. We pray that they would recover fully from this terrible act of violence, both physically and emotionally. We pray for their shooter, that he would turn himself in and be brought to justice, and to restoration. And we pray that you would guard us against an attitude that pits one type of suffering against another - you love all people, and violence against anyone grieves your heart. Let it grieve ours in the same way, Amen. ... See MoreSee Less

An important video message from the three Bishops of the Free Methodist Church (including Bishop Matt Whitehead, who was formerly the superintendent of our conference). The Bishops have called us to Stand As One on several key principles:

- We stand as one against white supremacy and all forms of racism.

- Even as we honor police officers, we stand as one against racial profiling and excessive force by law enforcement personnel.

- We stand as one against agents of peace in the midst of violence.

- We stand as one centered on the Truth of the Word of God and in our declaration that our highest loyalty is to Jesus Christ alone.

You can find several other resources that are referenced in the video to help deepen our grasp of these key principles. Thank you FMC Bishops for your leadership during this unprecedented season!
