Christian Ministry's Williams: "Living In A Different Time"

Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON––Christian Ministry is taking steps to help local elderly and shut-in residents.

Its executive director, Mitzi Williams, talked about that this week.

“Christian Ministry realizes that we are living in a different time,” she said, “and that there are seniors in our community that might need our services but cannot get to us. The ministry will start helping the elderly by taking boxes of food to them.”

Williams added that if said seniors haven’t been helped previously by the ministry, its volunteer staffers will need to know more about them.

“If we have not helped them before, we will need to get their regular information, including household income,” she said. “Churches and/or government agencies can call us with information on clients that need our help. We will use volunteers to get the boxes to the people.”

During this time of nationwide caution, precautions and “social distancing,” Williams explained that contact would be minimized for the sake of safety.

“This will be porch delivery,” she said of the boxes of food. “We will not go into homes.”

If you want to volunteer to help in this worthy effort, Williams encourages you call or e-mail Woody Saunders respectively at (704) 748-4961 or

And in other news, Williams continued that the ministry is in need of donations of food, including spaghetti noodles, macaroni, spaghetti sauce and crackers. Paper napkins are also needed.
