The Heart Behind the Hands
Luke 15 tells the story of a young man who was so hungry he fantasized about eating pig slop. When he came to his senses and returned home to his father, he expected to be scolded and treated like a servant. Instead, his father came running through the village to sweep him up in a hug of joyful celebration.
But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.
At Chandler Bible Church, we are the hands and feet of a Father just like the one in the story. We fight against shame by providing a hot meal, clothes, and a story of hope. It’s not a gift from us to others, but rather a gift from our Father to everyone who is willing to come to him.
We Want You!
“Feed the Hungry” takes place on the first Saturday of every month. We gather donations of food and clothing from people in the church and from local businesses. Then, we pack it all up and drive to Moeur Park in Tempe where we get the joy of serving about 120 people.
It’s a big job to gather, organize, serve, and clean up so many supplies. We can always use more hands if you’d like to be part of this effort.
12pm (to help prepare food) and/or 5pm (to help serve food)
