CUMC wood ministry looking to warm the community this winter ➤ Ministry looking for more volunteers, wood to help out neighbors By Jeff Say Culpeper Times Staff Writer Culpeper United Methodist’s Wood Ministry could have come straight from 1 Corinthians 3:13: “their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work.” The wood ministry started about 10 years ago by Lanny Horton, it was housed at the Baptist district office office by Duke's store, before CUMC took it over and it’s a ministry that has lit a fire under pastor Randy Orndorff and coordinator Shelley Plaster. The ministry uses fuel-ready logs to help warm community members through the cold winter months. “The ministry isn’t a clean up service, it’s about providing good quality wood to heat people’s homes in years that they need it,” Orndorff said. The ministry splits and cuts wood at a site near the Culpeper Community Gardens off Woodland Road and is always looking for more donations of wood and volunteers. Plaster explained that applicants for the program are vetted through the Department of Social Services and then that’s where the ministry comes into play. They have made more than 25 deliveries of wood to more than 15 families already this year.

“This year where I contacted Social Services they said they are predicting to have more applications come through because of the expected cold,” Plaster said. They’ve received donations of wood from residents this year and from Culpeper County Parks and Recreation but are always looking for more. What they really need is people to transport the wood and folks to split and cut it. Orndorff said it’s a perfect opportunity for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, church groups and other civic organizations to lend a helping hand during the colder months. “Kids can even stack wood,” Plaster said, pointing out younger generations can learn the value of helping and giving back to the community They’ve had other churches, such as Culpeper Presbyterian Church and the Church of Latter Day Saints volunteer already this year. They are planning a cutting day Jan. 12, so if the public is interested or has wood to donate, contact Plaster at cumcwoodministry@yahoo.com.
