Love Loud Montgomery

Love Loud Montgomery, formerly known as the Forest Park Ministry Center, is a compassion ministry of the Community Ministries of the Montgomery Baptist Association. The Matthew 25 Building, located on East Ann Street, meets immediate physical needs of people in crisis. Their clients can shop for groceries at no cost at the Matthew 25 Building. Christian world view counseling is available for those struggling with emotional or spiritual issues. Visit their website to hear more from Donna McCullough, Executive Director, about the ministry.

Love Loud Montgomery depends heavily on missionary volunteers. Linda Burrell and John McNeill are Eastmont members and two of those volunteers. Linda and John both work in the food pantry. Linda says, “I’m primarily a shopping buddy on Mondays and Wednesdays and Mr. John comes in at 6:30 am every Monday. He picks up from the food bank and helps in the food pantry. When I retired, I wanted to volunteer somewhere since I had not been able to do so while working. I grew up at Forest Park and had been friends with Donna for years, so this ministry seemed the perfect fit. My desire was to help others, but Love Loud has been more of a blessing to me than I have been to others. The people who shop here are so appreciative of what we are able to provide for them. I have made many new and diverse friends and learned to be less judgmental and truly grateful for how richly God has blessed me.”

Eastmont partners with Love Loud Montgomery’s Matthew 25 twice a year to support its food pantry. In the fall, the RAs lead a food drive by leaving brown bags on cars in the Eastmont parking lot that can be filled and returned the following week. June is our next opportunity to provide support. Donna McCullough says, “Your support of this center is a very vital opportunity to share God’ s love in this community.” Please bring any of the following items during the month of June and leave them in a ministry basket or a tub located throughout the church:
