Thank You!

Dear Mt. Ruhama,

How wonderful to see the compassion, generosity and goodness of the Lord reflected in you; I am truly touched by your thoughtfulness.  I am truly blessed to have such amazing people in my life.  I have faith and trust in the plan God has for me and I thank you all for your support in praying for me during my illness and surgery.  I wish you a life filled with love and care.  Thanks for all your prayers,  Regards, Agnes Pruitt

Thank You!

Dear Mt. Ruhama Church Family,

Thank you for the love and support you have shown us during the declining health and passing of our Dad.  We deeply appreciate the prayers, calls, cards, visits, flowers, food, and Gideon Bibles.  Your expressions of love have been such wonderful blessings!  How thankful we are to be a part of this special church family!

In His Love, The Garland Goodson Family

Backpack for Kids

Backpack for Kids

Mt. Ruhama is helping to sponsor the

BACKPACK FOR KIDS program at Balls Creek

Elementary and Tuttle Elementary.

This program is geared to help children in need by supplying

food over the weekends.  The backpacks are distributed each Friday with around 15 items of food, and the empty packs are returned on Mondays.  The process is repeated each week.


Because of increased need our collection will be ongoing/

year round.  We will alternate delivery to each school as

soon as an adequate amount has been collected.


What types of food are needed?  Any single serving canned

food (pop-top if available) or individually wrapped snack foods will be accepted. Our goal is to provide healthy foods that are child friendly.  The contents for each backpack will weigh approximately 5 lbs., yet in some cases, a bag could weigh up to 12 lbs., with contents.  Therefore, it is

important to use single serving cans so that it will be lighter for the children to carry home.


Canned meats (chicken, tuna, ham)

Canned meals (beef stew, soup, beef a roni, chicken & dumplings

Macaroni & cheese, spaghetti & meatballs)

Ramen Noodles, Instant Oatmeal & Grits in packet

Fruit bars, Granola Bars, Pop-Tarts, Cereal Bars, Protein Bars

Peanut Butter (small plastic jars or single serving cups)

Popcorn, crackers, etc.


ANY single serve non-perishable food items will be welcomed.

 (Microwavable items are fine)



The ECCCM is in urgent need of toiletries, especially shampoo and deodorant.  They also need volunteers to work in the food pantry, data entry, thrift store & grocery pickup.
