The Story of God's Storehouse....
God's Storehouse is a Food Pantry overseen by the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County. It currently serves about 100 needy families every Saturday here in SLO . In the past it has been managed by Mary Baum, who just turned 89 years old and has attended SLO Naz here in town, for about 30 years. Understandibly, Mary was looking to step down...and God brought this community ministry possibility before us as an opportunity to love and serve the needy in our community...not merely with food, but with the love & Gospel of Jesus.
Tim Arlen was very involved with God’s Storehouse for years and shared with Pastors Tim and Ken about the possibility of taking over the ministry. Pastor Ken, along with Tim Arlen, began looking into it and became more and more excited to see God’s hand at work, in leading us to manage God’s Storehouse.
As our ministry staff spent time talking and praying, they too became excited, but felt a key to moving forward was to share with our body to see if some would step forward to help lead this ministry here at GraceSLO. A few months ago, Pastor Ken shared this ministry opportunity on a Sunday morning. The response was very positive, as was our body's willingness to serve and step foward to lead it. We then presented a proposal to our Elders, and then following their approval, to our Finance and Facility Trustees. All of these leadership teams gave approval to continue moving forward. We then set up our God’s Storehouse Management Team who has been, and will keep, working very hard.
