Just as Jesus instructed Peter to feed His sheep, Pastors Rodney and Aretha Hammonds lead the Storehouse, a ministry of NLCC that demonstrates the love of God through meeting practical and spiritual needs of people within the community.   Provision comes in the form of food, clothes, and personal hygiene/grooming products.

The Storehouse joins forces annually with community partners to distribute Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets as well as Christmas toys/clothes to needy families.   On a monthly basis, this ministry hosts a “Broken Bread Bible Lunch” which provides a hearty bowl of savory soup while reading the Word of God (Bible) sure to satisfy both natural and spiritual hunger.  Of course the secret ingredient in the soup and the God’s Word is LOVE!  The Storehouse also provides a variety of bread and baked goods availabe immediately after every Sunday service.


And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”

John 6:35 NKJV


It’s often said that giving a person a fish helps for one meal but teaching them to fish helps them feast for a lifetime.  As wonderful as weekly, monthly, and seasonal blessings are, it is also the goal of the Storehouse to train and equip people in how to seek God in order to have their needs met daily.



  10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house,   And try Me now in this,” Says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven   And pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.   11 “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your  ground,  Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the LORD of hosts;  12 And all nations will call you blessed, For you will be a delightful land,” Says the LORD of hosts.

MALACHI 3:10-12
