Food Pantry

The Church on Rush Creek has operated this ministry into provision of food relief for those in emergency need since December 2009. Our focus is temporarily helping families to improve their current situation by providing “daily bread” in order for them to focus their limited incomes on other things other than meals. Families in need of relief may receive family assistance by having the head of the household complete a simple application. Upon each visit, a photo identification and proof of address must be presented.
 Food and monetary donations are much appreciated and can be tax deductible. For a list of food items click here.  

Volunteers are always needed Monday-Wednesday 10am-12pm; 1-3pm and Thursday 10am-12pm; 4-7pm. 

For more information, email   or call 817-468-7729.

Rush Creek Health and Wellness

Are you Overwhelmed with your health? Has it been too long since you have exercised, too long since you have even thought about what healthy food choices are because of your busy lifestyle? Are you in a position where you wouldn’t even know where to begin or feel that you have let it go for so long, there is no hope? Are you Under-resourced? Maybe you would like to go to the gym, but are not in a position financially to pay the dues? Maybe the gym isn’t your thing, but you would like to workout, but have no idea where to start. Or do you feel that eating healthy would be just too expensive to work into your budget, so you just eat out? Do you feel Far Away from God? Is your life is so busy, that you have no time to think about your health, much less find some quiet time to connect with Jesus?

If you are experiencing any of these things, Rush Creek Health and Wellness is for you.  We meet on Saturday mornings at 8am as a group who all have the same goal: TO GET HEALTHY-Physically and Spiritually! There is a place for you, whether you are already on your fitness/health journey or want to begin. Join us-its FREE, there is no better time than now!
