COMPASSION Ministry

We have a simple, straight forward approach to sharing God’s love in a practical way!

We seek to minister alongside God with discernment and openness, using the gifts He has given to His Church.

(1 Corinthians 12)

 

Whether handing out chilled water on a hot day, hot chocolate on a cold winter evening, passing out hot dogs to high school students or providing a church service for those in a struggling community; these small acts of kindness are designed to demonstrate God’s love to our community.

According to the Western Slope Food Bank of the Rockies, in Mesa County alone there are 20,000 people who don't know where their next meal will come from.

 

We partner with several agencies to provide assistance to those hungry in our community.

Our intention with Free Grocery Sunday is to be a spontaneous experience. We have had several established food programs over the years, and this time we want to bring hope to unsuspecting people. We have had several amazing encounters by trying this new method.

 

We are trying to reach other demographics that we would not otherwise reach. We will be moving to different locations every week. Our decision for location is last minute and is subject to change.

 

We start at noon and are normally out of groceries by 1 PM.

CVVC is one of the locations for The Emergency Food Assistance Program, a Federal program that helps supplement the diets of low-income Americans by providing them with emergency food at no cost. 


Mesa County residents who meet the eligibility guidelines that live in the outlying zip codes of 81520-81526 can receive food assistance on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 11:45 am - 1:45 pm. TEFAP is changing location, date and time. We will be at the Teller Arms Shopping Center near Planet Fitness and Big Lots on North Ave. The income and eligibility requirements will be the same.
