Whether it is a small ministry meeting for members or a major ministry event for welcomed guests, we readily support it all. Feel free to look over our delicious Menu Item.

Event Catering

The food you choose and the way it’s presented can have a huge impact on the success of any event. Fortunately, our professional staff is highly experienced in matching the ideal menu and service style to any given event. So whatever the style of your event – intimate or large-scale, casual or formal – you can be sure that we will deliver catering solutions that will impress even the most hard-to-please guest.

We can prepare menus to suit a wide range of service styles, including barbeques, buffets and banquets. If you’ve got something specific in mind, please feel free to discuss your ideas with us. For years, we have gladly taken the stress out of weddings, birthday parties, graduations, anniversaries, special dinners and youth outreach programs.

If you would like impeccable catering services for your next event, please contact our Food Service Director, Sherise Campbell via email or at 703-670-0184 ext. 1198.

At the age of 12 I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior and was baptized at Mount Moriah Baptist Church. I came to FMZBC in 1998, I enjoyed worship and fellowship. In 2000 I became a member of FMZBC. I now proudly serve zone K2, Pastor Aide Ministry, Senior’s Ministry, Vacation Bible School and FMZ Spiritual Cancer Support Group. My Special Spiritual Gift is a servant of the Grain Of Heaven, I love serving God’s people. I worked retail for 28 years, at Grand Union, Costco and Giant Food.I cut meat, wrapped meat, cooked and baked. I am somewhat a jack of all trades. My favorite scripture is the 23rd Psalm, The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.

Servant Support and Training

Our servants play a vital role in the success of the Grain of Heaven. Along with volunteering their time to help serve breakfast on Sunday mornings, they also help out when we have special events such as our Woman’s Tea, Spring Fellowship and many other events that we sponsor for our many ministries. If it wasn’t for our servants, we would not be able to perform at as high a level as we do. Our servants hard work, dedication and love for the Lord is what drives the Grain of Heaven to the point of excellence. If you wish to become a servant in the Grain of Heaven please contact La Tonia Sauls at lsauls123@aol.com or Karen Curtis at gdzgift@yahoo.com.

Servant volunteers, who have been blessed with the gift of serving and cooking, make up the backbone of our food service operations. We ensure each team member knows how to safely handle food as well as supervise and advise others in the kitchen area.

Servant responsibilities include serving customers, running food to the necessary areas, cashier, general cleaning and dishwashing.

We are always looking for dedicated men and women of God to serve the Kingdom of God so if you are interested in serving, please contact

Servant Training

We are committed to the ongoing development and training of our staff and our team. The following videos highlight introductory levels of training that we would like to review this month. Even if you are not a Grain of Heaven servant, we encourage you to take a moment to view the videos. Food safety is important for us all.
