9:00 am to 11:00 am … Food Distribution
The Barnabas Center is an outreach ministry of the Park Avenue Church of Christ which distributes food to those in need. It is located on 2800 S. Mirick Avenue. The phone number is 903-462-0094.
The Center is named in honor of the early disciple Barnabas, who in Acts 4 reportedly sold some of his land to help those in need. Park Avenue wants to carry on that ideal by sharing our blessings with others.
There were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need. Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means Son of Encouragement), sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet.
