Life Church Community Center

Food Ministry

Every week, we partner with Feeding Tampa Bay, Save-A-Lot, Costco, Publix and Children’s Baptist Home to provide thousands of pounds of food to those in need.  Over 550 families pick up a box full of fresh produce, meat, and groceries. With over 60 partners, we are able to provide balanced nutrition for over 4,000 individuals on a consistent basis.



Our stay-in-school program, Raptime, focuses on the importance of high-school graduation.  Our program focuses on setting goals and exploring career choices, which build the foundation for success. Raptime is open for students third grade and up.

Hot Lunch

Every Wednesday, the Community Center is open for a hot lunch. This is a wonderful opportunity to build relationships and encourage recipients to take further steps toward a healthy lifestyle. Hot Lunch is located at 6542 Applewood Dr, and is served from 12noon – 1p.


Through what we refer to as "Time Exchange," those in financial crisis may receive financial aid in exchange for community service hours. Individuals must apply for financial assistance and the need must be verified.
