First Saturday Ministries

Food Pantry & Clothing

Our First Saturday Ministry is where we as a church serve Christ and are intentional about loving people and sharing the Gospel.

The Hillcrest Clothes Closet/Food Pantry operates to help meet the needs of food and clothing to those in our local community – completely free of charge. We are open the First Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. – 12 noon. (please note the Food Pantry is currently a drive-thru and the Clothes Closet plans to reopen in March 2021).

Our First Saturday Ministry is located at our Crystal Springs Campus: 9120 Crystal Springs Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32221.

“Let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”


Since we operate solely on donations, we gladly accepts items on the first Saturday during the time we are open. We ask that the clothing be in good condition, not stained or torn. Clothing is available for babies, children, men and women – all sizes – as well as shoes, etc. Non-perishable food items are also accepted.
