Non-Member Assistance

Offering limited food and clothing to those locally in need.

Elder: Steve Steele

Bruce and Vivian Garner

"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,
I needed clothes and you clothed me…"

Matthew 25:35-36a

Webb Chapel's Assistance Ministry assists members of our local community by meeting emergency needs for clothing and food. Within the first few weeks following the establishment of the congregation in January 1956, Webb Chapel was offering assistance to those in need locally.

The Assistance Ministry, as it is today, was begun on December 13, 1971. Since that time, funding for this ministry has been and still is provided solely by collections in Webb Chapel's Sunday morning Bible classes. Emergency clothing and canned goods are provided to those in need as funding allows.

Steve Steele is the contact person for both member and nonmember benevolence. Both food and clothing ministries now are combined in the Ministry Building in the area which formerly had clothing only. We deeply appreciate Steve for his willingness to accept these responsibilities. Bruce & Vivian Garner will continue to dispense food and clothing on Tuesday and Thursday from 11 AM to 2 PM as they have for many years. We appreciate their dedication and commitment to helping those in need.

We thank Ron Dunn, Butch Brunner, and the late Charles Lowry for all the concern, time, and effort they put into the ministry over the years. They are appreciated. A special Thank You goes to Ken Jones for the many hours of time and effort they expended personally to see that the areas were prepared properly to assure that the combination of the ministries went as smoothly as possible.


Thanksgiving Baskets

You will be enriched in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. — 2 Corinthians 9:11

Thanksgiving SacksWebb Chapel members provide food and cooking items needed to prepare traditional Thanksgiving dinners for those who wouldn't otherwise have a special dinner. Two lists are distributed each Fall including non-perishable items to make a Thanksgiving meal special. The baskets are the combination of the two lists and are prepared to contain all that is needed to prepare a dinner for one family. These baskets are distributed to local families; the number of those helped is determined by the amount of goods provided by the congregation.
