“HEROSE” (YOUTH PROGRAMS)
With a heart to help others and a giving spirit, Rev. Jewel M. Scott was always feeding and clothing those in need. A mother of 13 children Rev. Jewel M. Scott knew what it took to stretch a meal or re-used clothing. The S.R. 1st Church of God originally was located in Santa Rosa CA and has been serving Sonoma County since 1966. Our passion is to carry Spiritual food to the lost. As we seek to help those in need of the gospel we’ve learned people have real physical needs as well. We care deeply for the community, friends and neighbors who are struggling not just financially but mentally emotionally yes and physically.
We hope to also offer those in need our clothes closet. (Coming soon). Items are collected through member of our local Church, donations from the community, and other local charities. Pastor Linda Robert runs the pantry and closet at the Church with the help of volunteers. All the Church asks of the people who use this plan is to show picture identification. However we also know many in need have no I.D. We do our best to help all those that come.
The food pantry is in need of donations, both monetary and food, to continue providing to the community. We have learned over the years almost everyone yearns for meaningful ways to give and share. We welcome donation to our food pantry, and our clothes closet knowing that it’ll make a real difference in the lives of people. It can costs us just to give fresh groceries––apples and pears, potatoes and carrots, rice and beans, bread and so much more–– to each family we serve. We welcome donations of any amount with gratitude. You can send a check made out to Santa Rosa First Church of God – The Food Pantry. Mail your donation to: 236 W. Sycamore Street Willows CA 95988. If you’d like us to send a beautiful gift card announcing that you have made a gift in someone’s name, please include the name and address of the recipient with your check, and we’ll mail the card out.

WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT GIVING?:
Proverbs 3:9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase: 10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. Deuteronomy 15:7 If there be among you a poor man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not harden thine heart, nor shut thine hand from thy poor brother: 8 But thou shalt open thine hand wide unto him, and shalt surely lend him sufficient for his need, in that which he wanteth. 9 Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee. 10 Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto. 11 For the poor shall never
cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land. Psalms 37:25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. 26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed. Psalms 41:1 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. 2 The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed upon the earth: and thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies. 3 The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing: thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness
Help us help others. God will keep His promises!
