COVID 19 arrangements
During the CoVid-19 pandemic, we will continue our Manna Ministry by serving Packed Lunches, curbside to our guests, on Wednesdays only..
During normal operations, 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, 215 South Main Street, Culpeper, VA 22701.
Manna Ministry seeks to share nourishment, compassion, and hope in Christ's Name to all who enter.
Mondays - Hosted by Mt. View Community Church
Wednesdays - Hosted by Culpeper Presbyterian Church
Fridays - 1st, 3rd, and 5th Fridays Hosted by Culpeper Presbyterian Church
2nd and 4th Fridays Hosted by United Methodist Culpeper, Hopewell, and Richardsville
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
