Ms. Ruby's pantry

Jesus said, "I was hungry and you fed me!" and "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Named in memory of Mrs. Ruby Martin, whose passion for serving the less-fortunate inspires us, "Ms. Ruby's Pantry" is the signature hunger ministry of Ebenezer Church which allows us to offer two separate but related ministries: "Back Pack Buddies" and "Share It!"​

Through the "Back Pack Buddies" ministry in partnership with Bostian Elementary School, Ebenezer Church seeks, in the name of Jesus, to serve those most vulnerable children of our community as a Back Pack filled with food for the weekend is sent home every Friday with students who have been specially selected and screened by the school. These students have access to breakfast and lunch at school during the week, but weekends can be challenging for them.​

Through "Share It!" the families of these students come to Ebenezer roughly once a month to receive greater amounts of food to help stock their pantry and help ensure their nutritional needs are better met. During the summer months, the "Share It!" ministry is especially needed since the children are not in school and, consequently, are not receiving the food supplied through the weekly back packs.

THANK YOU! to all who support this ministry with your offerings, your gifts of food, your help, and especially with your prayers for this ministry and the families we serve. Please know that what we are doing -- in Jesus' Name -- really MATTERS!
