The vision of the Bumper Crop ministry is to show the love of Christ to others by providing what we all need, food, to build a bridge between the church and our community. By going to people where they are rather than waiting for them to come to us, we can demonstrate what Jesus talks about in Isaiah 58:10 (And if you give yourself to the hungry, and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then your light will rise in darkness.).
What is Bumper Crop?
The last weekend of each month, attendees are able to pick up a paper bag on their way out of each service and participate by filling the bags with non-perishable food. The following weekend attendees are reminded to bring their donation with them and leave the bag(s) behind their vehicle bumper. Volunteers will assist in the pick-up of all bags and ensure proper delivery.
Be a part of this ministry
To make a Bumper crop weekend successful we need a minimum of six volunteers and three to four vehicles (preferably at least one pick-up truck). The time commitment would be two weekends, all four services. There is some bag preparation needed before the weekend starts. While this is a great opportunity for groups to serve together, we also encourage individuals to sign up on their own.
