I want you to meet Ruby A Flodin. She is no longer on her earthly journey, but she leaves a rich legacy of stewardship. She generously used her pantry, and whatever she had, to supply an abundance of nourishment, help and love to friends and strangers alike. Today, Ruby’s generous heart is honored by creating a ministry with the same value — taking the resources God has entrusted us with and turning them into that which supports families and communities through Ruby’s Pantry.
Ruby’s Pantry has been serving communities in Minnesota and Wisconsin for over 18 years, with donated overstocked food. It is a faith based non-profit organization that allows families to stretch their grocery dollar. With each $20 donation, guests receive an abundant share of food valued between $150-$200. There are no income or resident limits/requirements, and you can attend a Pop-Up Pantry at any city/state location.
Would you like to volunteer? A new Ruby’s Pantry site is being established in downtown Appleton as a community partnership. Christ the King is one of those partners in ministry. The Pop-Up Ruby’s Pantry will be located at First English Lutheran Church (downtown site) and they need volunteers from about 3:30-6:30pm for the first night, August 3. This Pop-Up Ruby’s Pantry will serve the community every first Tuesday of the month. Sign up to help by using this link https://www.rubyspantry.org/become-volunteer
If you would like to be a lead person, there are a couple of positions that need to be filled - https://www.felc.com/rubyspantry or by contacting Deni Kuchler 920.358.0554 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Deni will also be joining us for worship Wednesday June 30, 6:30pm of how God spoke to her about beginning this ministry to serve our community.
This is one of CtK’s ministry action items to eventually start a Ruby’s Pantry, but in the meanwhile we will serve generously like Ruby and bring God’s love to life!
Christ's Blessings & Peace,
