Church in Action


God's Kingdom depends on people giving their resources, which includes their gifts and time. Prayerfully consider your gifts. How can you best serve Jesus and His ministry? How much time can you give? What are you interested in? What's your passion?

  • Meridian Food Bank

    Summary: The Meridian Food Bank ministry is dependent on the generous donations of our church members and visitors.  Donations assist in feeding and supporting those individuals and families which need assistance and depend on our generosity.  I've been blessed with the opportunity to transport those donations to the food bank for several years.

    Donate: Food items primarily, canned, boxed and infant diapers.

    Where is the tote located? It has had several locations.  But, most recently as you enter the church on the west side entrance, close to the coffee bar.

    When are donations delivered? The donations are delivered when the bin is full.

    Contact: The church office and we will put you in touch with Gail Davis, our Food Bank coordinator.
