Breakfast at Basic
Each Saturday we host a free hot breakfast which is open to the entire community known as Breakfast at Basic. This ecumenical effort involves many churches from around the community to provide, prepare and serve a nutritious meal to all that wish to join us. Food ,fellowship and worship is the focus among believers, seekers, the hungry, the homeless and the lonely. This ministry is operated in partnership with another area ministry, Disciple’s Kitchen.
This evening meal and worship service takes place each Wednesday evening at 6 pm in the church fellowship hall. A worship service preceded by a nutritious meal offers an opportunity for fellowship and spiritual growth.
Casa de Amistad
This local nonprofit is housed and operates out of our church’s facilities. It offers various programs of education and material assistance to the community. Casa de Amistad began as a ministry of the Staunton District of the UMC and established its own 501c3 status in 2011. An after-school homework assistance effort called Amigos Readers operates during the school year and Supply Closet opens on Saturdays in conjunction with the free breakfast providing personal care and household items to those in attendance. If you are interested in volunteering contact Jennifer Strother at (540)946-7958.
We see the church van as a ministry in itself. From picking up children and adults with transportation for Sunday School and worship to providing transportation for WARM Shelter residents to taking people on trips aimed at fun and fellowship, the van drivers are opening their hearts and taking the wheel.
