10.Feed Our Neighbor Ministry
Journey Church is coming together with Feed Our Neighbor to ensure people with food allergies in the central Kentucky area do not go hungry during the COVID-19 crisis. The food we will offer is gluten-free so everyone can eat. Other food allergies can be accommodated, and people without food allergies will be served as well. Journey Church will serve as the food distribution point for Woodford County and we need volunteers to serve on rotating teams so we can serve those in need. We look forward to hearing from you!

Begin with prayer
Pray for your neighbors. Join us for our next Prayer Gathering, or go on a prayer walk through your neighborhood.
Since you can’t go out and talk to people, utilize the news and social media. Ask, “What do you need?” in Facebook groups, the Nextdoor app, etc. and listen to needs mentioned in our local news
Provide food for your neighbors via a food delivery app, like Grubhub, Doordash or Uber Eats
Write a thank you note to your local grocer, first responders, etc., share toilet paper or other supplies with your neighbors, call someone who may be lonely, buy groceries for your neighbor who can’t leave, invite people to join an online service & weekly devotional, etc.
Let’s commit to sharing some good news! Use #JourneyTogether on your Social Media profiles to share pictures and stories of acts of love and service.
