TMC Pantry's primary role is to show Jesus' compassion to individuals and families in our community facing:

  • Hunger
  • Difficult financial choices
  • Unforeseen financial setbacks
  • Underemployment - a situation in which individuals find it necessary to work in low-paying or low-skill jobs

In addition to distributing food, our long term goal is to provide in-house services and facilitate connections to resources in Cochise County that confront the root causes of hunger and encourage self-sufficiency.  

We distribute food bags to our neighbors in Golden Acres, residents of Sierra Vista, and organizations in Cochise County that help people achieve self-sufficiency including; Hoops House, Forgach House, SEABHS and Fountain of Hope Counseling.

October pantry news

Pantry Supporters,

We really need to get the word out for our Thanksgiving ministry! Please let anyone you know that is in need this Thanksgiving that we will have turkeys, $20 gift cards, and to-go bags full of food ready to be picked up at the church Monday November 20, in the afternoon, from 1 to 3pm. We plan to have 50 to give away.
Kris is currently collecting names from SV Gives and organizing deliveries of the donated food as well. You can email and we can organize a delivery if you know of someone that can’t pick up a bag for themselves.

To give an update for October: we helped an estimated 68 families totaling 223 people get food through our pantry, pick-up to-go bags, delivered to-go bags, and the Community Connect event. The cold weather is bringing out more people in need and we are privileged to show God’s loving kindness through this ministry.
We had 686 items donated last month and we thank all those who contributed to that. 

A special thank you to Danny and his family for the donation of 8 large boxes of items. These boxes have gone out to struggling families, Community Connect, Forgach House, Care Net and TMC MOPS. 

We also had a donation of men’s clothing. They were shared with the Good Neighbor Alliance. While making her delivery, Kris, our volunteer, saw the clothes and shoes being worn by a homeless man previously without any other clothing but what he was wearing. It makes our hearts happy to be witness to this and we are grateful for the donation.

Please continue to pray for the pantry through the holiday season.

Thank you all,
Julie Pedersen
Pantry Volunteer
