Wood Ministry Event: Saturday, August 26

The Wood Ministry is picking up steam as we end the summer and head into fall. This Saturday, please join us for a Split/Stack event at the collection site in Warrenton.  The weather looks really good after the past two weekends, and we have two log splitters on site ready for volunteers.  We’ll plan to meet at 8am and be completed around 10 so you can enjoy the remainder of your day.

Wood Ministry

We are going to get chopping with the multi-church effort to keep people in need warm this winter.

Warrenton Baptist Church and the Fauquier Community Coalition have been quietly serving a number of the residents of Fauquier County who use wood as a primary source of heat. Many of these people are elderly, disabled, sick, or a combination of all three – all are poor.

This is a three-tiered effort, so you can help with one, two or all three

  1. Harvesting the wood – cut logs at about 18″ and bring them to the site
  2. Splitting and stacking days – use a maul and/or a mechanical wood splitter to split and stack the wood. (Must be over 18 and we require a signed liability agreement)
  3. Delivery – (truck required by crew member)

Please consider this important ministry this winter! Please contact Dorothy Smith if you are interested.
