“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me …. .”    - Matthew 25: 35-36

The A.R. Nelson Christian Outreach Center, a Ministry of Bethel AME Church, provides food, clothing and limited financial assistance to needy individuals and families in the community.  Food and clothing are distributed on a monthly basis based on family size.  Every effort is made to include food items that are healthy and nutritious.  Clients select clothing items from the men’s, women’s and/or children’s sections depending upon their family make-up.   Other assistance is provided as needed in accordance with budgetary restrictions. Prayer and spiritual fellowship are available to all.
