  • Description: Every second and fourth Saturday of the month, National Baptist Memorial Church opens its doors at 9:00 am. to a steady flow of people coming to receive food from our food pantry. Monday through Friday at 5:15 p.m., an average of 20 children from the church’s after school program gathers around a table to eat dinner. The names of these ministries, "The Well Food Pantry" and "The Well After School Program", are derived from John 4 when Jesus meets the Samaritan woman at a well. During this encounter, Jesus accepts the woman just as she is; social barriers and taboos were broken; and, the Samaritan women received the revelation knowledge that Jesus is the Messiah. National strives to create such an encounter with the children and parents of the after school program and every recipient that comes to the food pantry each time they enter our space. The Well Food Pantry opened its doors August 23, 2008. During our first year, we were able to provide food for about 2,000 people.
