Food Pantry & Clothing Boutique What is SIA Ministries?

SIA is an outreach ministry of New Berean Church. S.I.A. Stands for Sozo In Action. Sozo is Greek for “rescue”. Jesus Christ rescued us from the wrath of God. In Him, God provided a perfect sacrifice for us. He is our provider. That's what Sozo In Action is all about. The long term goal of SIA Ministry is to provide free help for counseling, housing, hot meals, etc. Currently the ministry is comprised of the Food Pantry and Clothes Boutique, in the name of our Great Provider-Jesus.

For those in need:

What is the process to receive free food and clothing? SIA's food pantry and clothes boutique is open on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 6:30pm.

We ask for the following:

1. Valid photo ID 2. One recent utility bill with same address as ID 3. Information form filled out 4. View a ten minute film (sharing good news) All guest are welcome to return every 14 days for food and every 30 days for clothing.

Donations:

We welcome your donations: grocery items, cleaning items, personal products, baby items and monetary donations. They can be dropped off on Wednesdays at 5:00 pm.

“Here at The Peacock’s Plume, child care is more than an occupation; it’s a passion.”

We are dedicated to providing exceptional Christian education along with specialized outreach programs to help discriminating parents successfully balance life with children. In order to achieve this goal, we have implemented programs such as Parents’ Night Out and Friday Night Dinners, in which pizza can be ordered, paid for, and picked up through the center as a convenient means of getting dinner on the table. Last year, we were awarded the Bronze title for Best of Brandon in the childcare category. Since these awards are based solely on votes from the community, we are humbled and honored by this show of appreciation from our past and present families. Another motto we aspire to is the belief that engaged children are happy children! We pride ourselves on our commitment to learning throughout the year, as we develop exciting summer programs complete with academic themes and special events like water slide days, gardening initiatives, and in-house field trips ranging from Lowry Park Zoo and the Florida Aquarium to storytellers and puppet shows. We also hold VPK classes in the summer in addition to the school year. Our current extracurricular activities offered on site include Spanish, Pre-Cheerleading, and Dance. The center keeps a healthy menu, providing morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack made fresh daily and brought to each classroom. Security is also important here at The Peacock’s Plume, as we offer webcam access to all of our classrooms as well as a two-point entry system before accessing the school. Our staff is CPR and First-Aid Certified. Assistant Teachers maintain early childcare training and many of our Lead Teachers go well above our requirements to earn a CDA, Associate’s Degree, or higher. Christian principles of honesty, caring, and compassion influence the way we do business. Our kids pray before each meal, study Jesus and Bible stories, and conduct prayer circles. When our parents drop off their children, they feel content that their child will be safe, happy, and loved. The Peacock’s Plume is more than a childcare facility; we are a family who welcomes new additions with open arms. Please give us call at 813684-0700. We’d be happy to meet you!
