FOOD MINISTRIES

Food Pantry:

The church operates a food pantry stocked with non-perishable food items.  The pantry is open the first Saturday of each month from 9am to 11am.  Call 540-207-7650 to register for a food box.

 

The pantry is available to anyone in need.  If you have a need of food assistance between the normal open dates and times, please call the church office at 540-207-7650.

 

Homeless Shelter:

Our ministry at the Thurman Brisben Center for the Homeless began in August 2006. We are among approximately 45 churches and organizations that provide a supper meal nightly to the residents. The homeless shelter is located in the Fredericksburg Industrial Park off of Blue Gray Parkway. The shelter averages about 75 men, women and children monthly.

ROBC currently has 30+ volunteers who divide up in teams of 5-6 people and serve a meal once monthly. The menu, shopping for groceries and cooking the food at the shelter is carried out by each team. Funds for purchasing food are provided through the church budget. If you would like to be included on this feeding ministry team, please contact Nancy Kail. We always welcome volunteers.
