The WMU operates a food pantry, which moved recently from the basement of the church to the parsonage across the street from the church. It is open to the public on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 9:30am to 12:30 pm. Food and monetary donations are welcomed. We are currently receiving donations from Antioch Church and the Mine Run Fire Department, as well as The Corner Preschool. We work closely with the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank whose discounts on necessary items have made it possible to provide more food to our neighbors in need. This ministry is currently providing assistance to more than 75 families, and the need in our community appears to be growing.
The WMU also leads the church in filling back packs and Easter baskets each year for a local elementary school, as well as the Boys and Girls Club in Orange.
