The Mobile Food Pantry needs volunteers each month to help at Mobile Food Pantry events.  LINK has distributed more than 350,000 pounds of fresh vegetables, fruits and non-perishable food to more than 6400 families. The food is donated by the Capital Area Food Bank.

The next volunteer opportunity for the LINK Mobile Food Pantry will be at 9:30 AM on Tuesday, February 14, 2023 in the parking lot of Christ the Redeemer Catholic Church.  Join Team Dranesville and wear your Dranesville UMC T-shirts while packaging food for or distributing food to those in need. 

Lenten Bible Study

New Bible Study: ​Starting this month, the Tuesday and Thursday Bible Study groups will return to our study: The Beginnings of Judaism.

The roots of Judaism reach back to the Hebrew Bible—also known as the Old Testament by Christians. For thousands of years, Jews have looked to these scriptures for their origins, and have located in them the tenets of their faith. The Bible provides Jews reasons for sadness and joy, wisdom, and most of all, a profound belief in what God expects of them and has promised to them.

Bible Study  for Lent is Beginnings of Judaism.  Professor Isaiah M. Gafni of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem explores the evolution of an ancient faith  and we discover a tradition of vigorous and joyous debate—where reinterpretation coexists with profound acceptance of the original instructions from God regarding the practice of faith.
