The “Come-To-Me” Food Pantry opened its doors on October 17th, 2007, as an outreach ministry of Fishers United Methodist Church. Since then the Food Pantry has grown into a community-wide effort helping to feed thousands of individuals and families in Hamilton County. Our goal continues to be to show love and care to those in need by providing once per month a week’s supply of food and personal care items. So far over 2 million pounds of food and personal care items have been distributed! It has been an amazing blessing to see the many ways God is providing for this ministry, and how people’s lives our being transformed by the love of Christ.

The lives of early Christians were characterized by matchless generosity, reliance on God, and a profound devotion to prayer. In Acts 2:46-47, Luke records, “They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
The Christian movement grew rapidly because of God’s response to the believers’ diligence, passion, and faithfulness in prayer. Jesus taught us in Luke 11:9-10 to “ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” It is because Jesus told us that he will respond to our asking, seeking, and knocking, that prayer is to be a core commitment with Christians and the church. We believe that we express our faith, love, and dependence on God through lives of prayer and worship. Fishers United Methodist Church demonstrates this with its commitment to an organized and faithful prayer ministry.
The mission of the Prayer Ministry is to support the Fishers United Methodist Church community as inspired and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Prayer Ministry will INTERCEDE to God consistently on behalf of the church leaders and its members. ENCOURAGE, MOTIVATE, and HELP church members to an active life of prayer and to participate in the weekly prayer activities with the ultimate goal of turning God’s House, the church building, into a House of Prayer (Isa 56:7; Matt 21:13) The prayer ministry will conduct prayer classes, meetings, or sessions, and will respond to pray with others in the body of Christ for specific concerns and needs of people within and outside our church community.
If you are interested in participating in this prayer ministry by lifting up Fishers United Methodist Church to the Lord, praying for others, meeting people's needs, interceding, etc., then may the Lord guide you to join us here in this spiritual ministry. Opportunities exist for intercessory prayer warriors to pray either at home on their own or in group settings, and/or to pray for others in a personal face to face situation.
