Feeding Ministry Minister Lydia L. Davis serves as this Ministry’s Leader. The Barnes UMC “Taste of Heaven” feeding program is designed with the understanding that before positive change can happen, we must meet the basic needs of the community.

It is our desire to give hope to children and families around the world by giving them the nourishment they need to make it through another day. We’re also helping individuals and family by first sharing God’s Good News through scripture, testimony, and prayer to facilitate hope, encouragement, and empowerment. Lives are being saved by a simple meal served with love and changed by the Word of God.

We know it is our obligation, and consider it a privilege, to step in and provide nourishing meals. It’s one of the most basic necessities of life, yet many don’t have access to simple things like rice and beans. We believe that our Feeding Ministry is a wonderful and an effective way to serve and connect with our community.

“He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.”” John 21:17 NKJV
