Emergency Food Pantry:
The church operates a small emergency food pantry stocked with non-perishable food items. The pantry is available to anyone who has need. Contact the church office to schedule a pick-up.
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 is 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.
Food For Life:
FFL is a service of the Food Bank providing a monthly food box to low income senior adults or disabled persons. Registration forms are available at the church, and must be approved by the Food Bank in order to participate. Currently we deliver to 16 families/individuals in the church community. The FFL boxes are packed at the Food Bank on the first Saturday of every month, starting at 9:00 AM, and volunteers are always needed to help with this. The church van leaves the church around 8:40 AM on the packing Saturday, if you are interested in helping.
