We are blessed to have a relationship with Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee.  They are our partners to provide food for the hungry people of our area. Clay County Tennessee is our home.  We know the Lord has called us to help one another.  The Scripture says that if you did this to least of these, you did it to me.    

Since 2007, Celina United Methodist Church along with the help of many civic groups and local churches have made it possible to deliver over 50 (fifty) tons of food to the people of Clay County who need assistance with food. This helps us to provide food to over 300 households at every distribution. We have had the the help of grants and the generosity of many in the people. The need is as great now as it has ever been since we have began distributing Second Harvest food items.

 

 

 

 

Your Help is Needed 

 

We are working to raise money to have more Mobile Pantry events in Clay County. 

Budget cuts in Tennessee state government have effected the number of grants that we had in the past to get funding for local Mobile Pantries. 

It has been calculated that if 83 people would be willing to donate $10 a month to this cause, we would have funds to provide a mobile pantry to the community four times a year.  We would like to hear from you.  Would you be "ONE of 83" ?

We need to raise $2500 every quarter of the year, and we are consistently reaching this goal. Our new goal is to be able to offer the Mobile Pantry every other month for a total of 6 distributions each year.  If you can give to this important ministry, please send a check to Celina UMC - "Food Pantry"  PO BOX 664 Celina, TN 38551.
