How YOU can help!


What started as Pursuit Church partnering with Rooted Women’s Ministry and 4:12 Student Ministries to provide food for children impacted by the recent announcement of school closings, has become a way to feed anyone in our community who needs help during this difficult time.   

We are partnering with schools, businesses, East Lincoln Christian Ministries and many generous hearted people to replenish Backpack programs with much needed food for children in Lincoln and Catawba counties, our senior citizens, and anyone else who needs food Please come by Monday-Friday 10:00-4:00 and closed Saturday & Sunday. No questions asked. We are here to love and give…period.   

If you are not able to come get food, please reach out to the emails below and we will try our best to bring food to you. 

If you are willing to donate food or hygiene items please see the recommended list below.  Items can be dropped off at the times listed above.  We will keep everyone updated as we get information through the church website and social media.  Thank you to our church family and our entire community for helping us be a light to others in this trying time.  We are God’s children and we will not sit idly by, but we will take this opportunity to show His love and His care for every single person in need. What a thrill to be the hands of feet of Jesus in a real way!
