Ways to

Get Involved at Manor Memorial

Food Pantry


     If you are in need of food assistance, please come to the
church at 9320 N. Congress Street in New Market. Our food
pantry is open on the 3rd Thursday of each month from 1 pm
to 5 pm. The food pantry entrance is located at the rear of
the church off John Sevier Road.

No ID or paperwork is needed. You will receive a
printed menu with all the food items that are being
distributed on that day including fresh foods and produce.
After a brief registration, your food order will be filled, and
you will receive the items requested from your menu. If you
are physically unable to come down the steps into the
pantry, an interviewer will come outside to register you.

Bad Weather Policy: If Shenandoah County schools are closed;
the Food Pantry will be closed also and will reopen the next day
(Friday) for regular hours. If schools are closed on Friday, we will
open the next day school is open. If bad weather begins once we
are open, we may need to close early and reopen using the policy
above. If in doubt, please call the church office to make sure we are
open 540-740-8959.

Benevolence Fund

The purpose of the Benevolence Fund of Manor Memorial UMC is to provide short-term material help to persons and families who contact the church seeking relief for emergency needs. In keeping with our church’s mission statement, we seek to recognize Christ in the needs of others and to share the love of Christ with them in appropriate ways. We provide assistance to those living in the area covered by the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry as well as travelers passing through town.  We provide emergency food,  help with electric and water bills, gas for their car, and emergency lodging at a local motel.

Mercy Fund

The purpose of the Mercy Fund of Manor Memorial UMC is to provide financial assistance to persons who find themselves in a catastrophic situation. The Mercy Fund is intended for those who will require sustained help that goes beyond the scope of our Benevolence Fund. We have broadened our purpose by showing local employees our appreciation of their work and being involved in a prison ministry.




Monetary donations for any of the above missions can be dropped off at the church office at 9320 N Congress St. or put in the offering plate during Sunday worship services.


We thank you for supporting our church’s missions!
