Community Outreach


Northeast Area Pantry*

Bethany Christian Church is the site of the Northeast Area Food Pantry. This emergency food pantry collects donations and fulfills the needs of many in our community. The pantry began in 1979 and was one of the first in Lincoln.

The Northeast Area Pantry serves individuals and families-in-crisis who may obtain a seven-day supply of nutritious foods.

Bethany Christian Church holds special events throughout the year to support the Pantry including the CROP Walk, Pantry  Sundays and Penny-A-Point-For-Pantry during football season. Souper Bowl of Caring to support the Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach program is held Super Bowl Sunday every year. Learn more about Matt Talbot at


Your support is needed and greatly appreciated! Watch for weekly Pantry needs in the church bulletin or on the BCC home page.
