Parking for the Pantry- Old Settlers 2015

Over $800 in cash and four boxes of food have been donated to our Faith Journey Food Pantry!


"Parking for the Pantry" took place this weekend during Olathe's "Old Settler Days".  Old Settlers is an annual 3-day event hosted by our city, including Kansas' largest parade, carnival rides, crafts stalls, games, fair food, live entertainment, and free stuff.  It's like a good old-fashioned American county fair.

Our church currently owns an empty plot of land in downtown Olathe where our future ministry center will be built and it couldn't be a better location for ministering to eager festival-goers!  Because parking  during the festival is at an absolute premium, we offered free parking while accepting food and cash donations for our food pantry,  turning a rather unassuming empty field into a sacred space.

  The event was a huge success and we praise the Lord for this great opportunity to meet folks from all around our city, giving them an opportunity to be generous and help us help families in need.
