Food Distribution

Wednesdays

Drive-thru food distribution effort is partnered with IEHP every Wednesday morning from 9:00am - 11:00am and is located in the rear church entrance. Occasionally the food distribution is cancelled if IEHP is unable to furnish food. Wednesday's food are perishable items and comes to us early in the morning.  We try and sort the bad items, but often some produce is spoiled. To obtain produce on Wednesdays you need to fill out a form on connectie.org website. Search for Hemet SDA Church with a zip code of 92544. Click on "Free Food Boxes at Hemet Seventh-Day Adventist Church." Once on the proper listing click Contact and fill out required information. IEHP needs a form filled each week to know how many people will need food and makes it easier for our community services to properly divide the food equally. Registration begins on Thursday and ends on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. for the following week.

Food & Clothing Distribution

Tuesdays

The Hemet Seventh-Day Adventist Church is also open for food and clothing distribution on Tuesdays from 9am-11:30 am.  There is no need to sign up for this one. First come first serve.

Making a Donation

The community services ministry is always looking to improve and help our community. We are seeking ways to better stock our food pantry and essential items.  We accept donations of marketable items such as clothing, small furniture, non-perishable food, etc. If you are looking for charities to donate to or donating clothes to the homeless, feel good knowing 100% of the money and essential items goes back to those who need it most.

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

13 Now when Jesus heard about John, He withdrew from there in a boat to a secluded place by Himself; and when the people heard of this, they followed Him on foot from the cities. 14 When He went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and felt compassion for them and healed their sick.

 

15 When it was evening, the disciples came to Him and said, “This place is desolate and the hour is already late; so send the crowds away, that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 But Jesus said to them, “They do not need to go away; you give them something to eat!” 17 They *said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.” 18 And He said, “Bring them here to Me.” 19 Ordering the people to sit down on the grass, He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up toward heaven, He blessed the food, and breaking the loaves He gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds, 20 and they all ate and were satisfied. They picked up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve full baskets. 21 There were about five thousand men who ate, besides women and children. -NASB1995-

Matthew 14:13-21

There Is No Greater Example Than Christ

Jesus didn't just speak, he healed the sick, and made sure their stomachs were full.  He filled their physical need before He filled their spiritual need. Help our community services with a charitable donation to further Christ's example.
