Eastridge Food Pantry and Covid-19

The Eastridge Food Pantry will suspend operations due to Covid-19 concerns. Our last distributions will be on Sunday April 5th and Wednesday April 8th.

We want everyone to be informed now where other resources are available, so that you may prepare accordingly. Below is the Lincoln Food Bank’s daily pre-packed box distribution schedule.

Please note, the Eastridge Food Pantry will resume operations as soon as possible, so please continue to check our Facebook page  or updates and other resource information.

We will still accept food and monetary donations for this mission as our outreach may find other opportunities with the pantry temporarily closed. Otherwise consider helping the Food Bank as they continue to feed the Lincoln community.

Thank you for all your support! Stay safe, stay healthy!

I saw a river over which every soul must pass
to reach the kingdom of heaven,
and the name of that river was suffering:
and I saw the boat which carries souls across the river,
and the name of that boat was love.

“But now, says the Lord— the one who created you, Jacob, the one who formed you, Israel:
Don’t fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.” (Isa 43:1)

These words have brought me comfort for most of my career now, as I have used them at baptisms, weddings, confirmations, and funerals. I use them now, hoping they provide comfort and grounding for us all during this unusual COVID-19, coronavirus pandemic.
 
“Out of an abundance of caution…” these words are being used by many government and private organizations as we face the changes we are being asked to make. Now, I join in using them, in regard to some changes being made at Eastridge Church.
