Anyone in the community who is in need is invited to stop by the church between 2-5pm on the 3rd Friday of the month. Pull into the church parking lot by the gazebo, and we’ll load a box of groceries into your car for you. We are at 8006 Centreville Rd., Manassas, Virginia, on the corner of Centreville Rd. & Spruce.

If you would like to help with this ministry, we pack boxes at 10am on the 3rd Friday of the month. You can also bring donations by the church anytime that the doors are open.

Each month, we bring a hot lunch over to the team at Yorkshire Volunteer Fire & Rescue. We appreciate their dedication to the community they serve, and a homemade meal is one way we can show our appreciation.

Other Community Ministries

Throughout the year, we work on a variety of ministry projects to reach out to and help our community. Please listen for the Sunday announcements and/or contact the church office to find out how you can help and be a part of these ministries. In recent months, we put together and provided blessing bags for the homeless and disadvantaged, groceries to day laborers in the area, and Christmas baskets to those who are homebound.

In December, we also brought Care Bags for chemo patients to the infusion center at UVA Prince William Medical Center. Each bag was filled with a variety of items ranging from puzzle books and lip balm to cozy socks and a hand-written note. We provided forty carefully packed bags to the hospital, and we pray that through them, we are able to be a blessing and comfort to those who are hurting and going through a challenging time.
