Manna Ministry

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue our Manna Ministry by serving packed lunches, curbside, to our guests from 11:00 to 12:30 on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Our Manna Ministry serves a FREE LUNCH to anyone in need on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm.

The meal is served at the Culpeper Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall, 301 South Main Street, Culpeper, VA 22701.

Manna Ministry seeks to share nourishment, compassion, and hope in Christ's name to all who enter.

Mondays- we are currently seeking a host congregation for Mondays

Wednesdays- Hosted by Culpeper Presbyterian Church

Fridays- 1st, 3rd, 5th Fridays Hosted by Culpeper Presbyterian Church

                 2nd and 4th Fridays Hosted by Culpeper United Methodist Church, Hopewell Methodist Church, and Richardsville Methodist Church

Our long range vision is to serve a meal to those in need on a daily basis (5 days a week) at the Culpeper Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall. Currently Manna Ministry is seeking organizations that would be willing to host another day or days that would allow Manna to expand to Tuesdays, and/or Thursdays.

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in..." Matthew 25:35
