Like many churches, Pflugerville First UMC has a vital food pantry ministry.
This week, clients coming to the food pantry received Thanksgiving Day food items as well as the regular offerings. In addition to food items, lead pastor Rev. Russell Floyd and food pantry volunteers used the opportunity to extend hospitality in additional ways.
As persons arrived, they were welcomed and then invited to share prayers, visit with the pastor, and also receive Holy Communion before leaving if they so desired.
It was "a meaningful morning, sharing communion with our neighbors”, said Rev. Floyd. “The foundation we lay is hospitality first that leads to the prayer, support and communion.”
