Times & Location
Entrance FAR REAR OF THE NEW CHURCH WING
Hours: Due to Covid Pandemic, attending our pantry is currently by appointment. Appointments are available at 8:00, 8:30, & 9:00 am each Saturday. Occasionally, the pantry will be closed due to holiday schedule.
Appointments: Appointments can be scheduled by calling the church office (864-895-1510) during regular hours, Monday through Friday. Appointments can also be scheduled by attending the pantry the first time and receiving an appointment for future visits. Clients with previous appointments should bring with them their appointment sheets and honor the time slot given.
How it works: Upon an initial visit and registration, a pantry guest is then considered a “pantry client”. Initial visit and registration require providing requested information and completion of the WBC Intake Form. A valid picture identification is required. Food parcels are distributed based on registered household information and family household size. Clients are invited to attend a short devotion time. Food parcels are bagged and handed to clients and/or displayed on tables with instructions on number of selections based on available inventory. Pick up of food parcels for another household is available only one time each month if presented with acceptable picture ID of the registered head of household.
Our staff will be readily available to answer any questions you may have about accepting Christ as your Savior and Lord and questions about our ministry and church beliefs and activities. We invite all our clients to attend all our church activities relative to their age group.
WBC reserves all rights relative to church properties, functions, ministries, and membership. As such, WBC may refuse admittance to the Food Pantry to any individual based upon security risk, behavioral issues, system abuse and non-compliance to Food Pantry qualifications. Any individual disallowed admittance to the Food Pantry may reapply for admittance by letter to the church leadership after a 90-day suspension.
For I was hungred, and you gave me meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Matthew 25:35-36 KJV
