Streams of Water is Alameda's community outreach ministry and is led by John Helton. This ministry provides a weekly food pantry & clothing closet, financial assistance for utility bills, holiday meal baskets, an Angel Tree Christmas program, and an annual Back to School Roundup. We hope that the Streams of Water ministry is a blessing to all the people that it serves.
THE FOOD PANTRY IS STILL OPEN DURING IT'S NORMAL HOURS. FOR EVERYONE'S SAFETY, IT WILL BE SET UP AS A DRIVE THROUGH.

Our Streams of Water Ministry will prepare 80 Christmas meal boxes for families in the community. These boxes include a frozen turkey, pie, and all the fixings for a holiday meal. Non-perishable donations can be placed in the barrels in the lobby. The turkeys can be placed in the freezers in the cafe area. Monetary donations are also accepted.
Items needed: Corn, Macaroni & Cheese, Instant Potatoes, Green Beans, Stuffing, Frozen Turkey, Rice, Cranberry Sauce, Canned Yams
If you would like to sign up for a holiday meal box, you need to come by on Wednesdays during our Food Pantry to talk to on of our caseworkers.
If you would like to bless a family this year by providing Christmas gifts for their children, you can sign up to adopt a family at the Streams of Water Angel Tree, beginning November 29th.
If you are not attending in-person services at this time, but still want to adopt a family, look for posts about our Angel Tree program in the Alameda Family group on Facebook.
