Compassion Ministries
Compassion Ministries is an all volunteer outreach originally established to feed local hungry people.

As the ministry has grown, it has reached out to people who are hungry in East Tennessee and in specific cases of need to Kentucky, Louisiana, and Eastern North Carolina.

The Feeding the Hungry area found above describes many of the people helped.

News Update:

A Mobile Food Pantry is coming to Washburn School on February 1st from 10:00 AM EDT until the food runs out.

Our next Local Food Pantry will be Thursday, January 23rd at Cornerstone Church. Worship at 4:00 and food distribution at 4:30.

On Saturday, 21 Dec 2020, we conducted a mobile food pantry, in partnership with United Health Care. Our location was an isolated community located in Monroe County. We worked closely with Principle Joey Deputy and Assistant Principle Shan Dalton of the local elementary school, Pastor Harrold Preyer, his wife Fran, and many volunteers of Grace & Glory Church. We were also blessed with numerous volunteers from our church and local workers from the Coker Creek community.

In the end, we received this letter from a Monroe County Juvenile Court caseworker. “I sent one of ‘my’ families to your event. They certainly needed it. They contacted me with tears in their voice of pure gratitude. They could hardly believe what they received and that they were given a shopping cart full. I am passing their joy along to you with my thanks as well.” Signed, Judith Dwyer.

On Saturday, October 12th, Compassion Ministries conducted a Mobile Pantry at Frostbite House of Prayer in Spring City, Tennessee. Special thanks to the volunteers from the local church who made this pantry a success! 141 families were served representing 448 people! Everyone was gracious and grateful.

On Saturday, September 28th, Compassion Ministries partenered with United Health Care for a Mobile Pantry at Central Elementary School in Wartburg, Tennessee. The principal, Zandy Knox, and his staff worked along side us to serve 172 families representing 378 people.

Southeast Bank of Farragut is continuing sponsoring our feeding the children ministry (Backpack Program)! Thank you!
