Christian Ministry Soup Kitchen Open Daily
Looking for help on Easter Sunday, April 17

Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON––Christian Ministry’s soup kitchen is a signature function of the local charity.

And it needs your help. That’s the word this week from administrative assistant Angie Pooley.

“Our soup kitchen is open every day, 365 days a year, even on Easter Sunday,” Pooley said. “We need a group to run the kitchen and help feed our clients on Easter Sunday (April 17). This is a special day to not only feed our clients but also feed them the Good News about the risen Saviour.”

Relatedly, the soup kitchen also needs volunteers May 7, 28 and 29 and June 4 and 11. Can you help? Call executive director Mitzi Williams at (704) 732-0383 to book these dates.

In other news, Williams noted that a box truck driver is needed to help get the food from the grocery store to the ministry’s food pantry. If you or someone you may know might be aware of anyone with experience driving a school bus or a box truck, call Woody Saunders or Williams at the same number cited above.


“Amazing Race” coming April 24

Plus, this year’s “Amazing Race Against Hunger” will be a scavenger hunt, slated to be held in downtown Lincolnton on Sunday, April 24, 3-4:30 p.m. Williams noted that you may start collecting funds right now.

To learn more about the event and register your group, race on over to the Website at or call Mimi Rhyne at (704) 732-0383.

And talking of Easter, Christian Ministry has Easter baskets ready, as Williams noted.

“If you know of someone who is not able to give their kids an Easter treat this year, please tell them about our ministry,” she said. “We are here to help those who are in need, whether it is for food, clothing or other assistance. Churches: please have our brochures ready to hand out if you know of anyone who could use our services. Thank you!”

She added that the ministry’s emergency services needs additional Easter baskets or buckets, as well as backpacks for adults. 

Party for volunteers
And April 19, 5-7 p.m., there will be an appreciation bash held in honor of Christian Ministry’s many volunteers, as Williams informed.

“If you have volunteered in any capacity––LINC Home Delivered Meals, the soup kitchen, emergency services (dock, pantry, warehouse, clothes closet), the Christmas ministry, nursing home ministry, receptionist, truck drivers and committee members; anyone who has collected donations for the ministry; and if you volunteer any time, weekdays or weekends––this event is for you!” she said.

The event will be held at Calvary Baptist Church, located at 493 Calvary Church Road in Lincolnton.
