Locher FOOD PANTRY MINISTRY
"They come because they are hungry"
Metropolitan Community Church of Corpus Christi helps alleviate some of that hunger by buying food from The Corpus Christi Food Bank, receiving donations from individuals and distributes, in an equitable manner, to hungry people with no discrimination of any kind. In 2005 this food was given to approximately 1050 families, 3675 persons. In 2009, we served the same number of people in just one month. In September of 2009, Coastal Bend AIDS Foundation turned their food bank services over to the Locher Food Pantry.
The emphasis for distribution is not on nutrition alone but on helping people to save some of their own dollars to use for basic goods. We do this by providing many snacks which would, otherwise, be bought with limited funds. This ministry is carried out by church volunteers and draws clients from many areas within the city.
Mortgage Retirement Committee
The Mortgage Retirement Committee (MRC) is charged with raising funds to pay off our entire building by 2017 or sooner. The largest fundraiser we have is our Annual Awards banquet. This annual event is held the second Saturday in April of each year. Tickets for this event may be purchased over time or all at once. See http://www.mcccorpuschristi.org/52.html for more details about this year's dinner or to purchase tickets. Other events are held throughout the year as well.
Our current Lay Delegate is Andy W. and our Alternate Lay Delegate position is Vacant. They are primarily responsible for representing Metropolitan Community Church of Corpus Christi at our Regional and General Conferences and bringing information back to the congregation. They are also responsible for raising the funds to pay for their trips to these conferences and are currently selling t-shirts to help with this. Click here to see and/or order a t-shirt.
