Since October 2015 our Pure Youth group, with the financial support of the congregation, has been supporting Raleigh Rescue Mission through its Bag Lunch Program.
PRCN Pure Youth has been on many missions trips throughout the years and they always come back to us full of renewed love for Christ and a desire to be more like Him, to help those in need not just once a year on the annual trip, but to help those in need right here in our own neighborhood all year long.
The first week of each month we prepare 30- 40 bagged lunches for the Mission’s overnight emergency shelter guests so they will have a healthy meal to take with them when they leave the shelter in the morning. A typical packed lunch would includes a bottle of water, a meat & cheese sandwich, chips, snack bar, an apple or orange, two home-made cookies and a hand-written, heart-felt note of encouragement from one of our teens.
“Work hard to feed hungry people. Satisfy the needs of those who are crushed. Then my blessing will light up your darkness…” Isaiah 58:10
