Wintergarden Presbyterian Church is located in the “Murdock” area of Port Charlotte, between Collingswood and Pellam. We are in the middle of our wonderful neighborhood and love being here! The people of Wintergarden make up a delightful congregation who are loving, caring, and devoted people. Thankfully, during COVID-19 and beyond, who we are at our core has not changed. Every week, we gather in more creative ways for Bible study, worship, prayer, and fellowship. In addition, we are excited about growing individually in our faith, growing as a faith community, and living out our faith in our community.
God is doing new and amazing things in our congregation and community every day. Since June of 2019, we have had a weekly food pantry every Thursday from 12 to 4 pm every week. In this journey into “food pantry ministry,” we were overwhelmed with how many people struggle with food insecurity in our county. Every week, we are serving over 450 individuals through the food pantry. We are blessed by our volunteers who serve weekly and by those who use our food pantry. We know we “love to feed people” and continue to look at how we can help meet the daily needs of those who are hungry and how we help advocate to reduce the levels of food insecurity in our community.
In addition to the food pantry, we also have a community garden and are developing a food forest on our property. As we continue this journey of faith, we are excited to see how God will work in and through us to share God’s love with everyone we meet. As we continue this journey, we will continue to embody being “a church of hope, love, and friendship” for you and your family. Know you are welcome to join us on this journey.
