Special Offering this Sunday

We’ll have a special offering this Sunday, March 17, for the Central Asia Mission Trip that Timmy Carter and Donald Marsden are on. Checks can be made out to Christ Presbyterian Church with “Central Asia Trip” in the memo line.

Meals for Leo U.

Leo Ulashkin is recovering from foot surgery, and his mobility is restricted. Let's bless him with some meals this week. He would need his meals prepared and ready to eat. Contact him directly to set up delivery. His address is 3006 Midlothian Turnpike, Midlothian, VA 23224, and his phone number is (804)528-8556. Follow this link to sign up to take him a meal.

Mercy Ministry Funds

One of the ministries of our church is mercy ministry, which includes helping one another with financial aid in times of need. The deacons and the Session recently approved a new Mercy Ministry Funds Policy, which we encourage you to review at your convenience.

Rob Bies is currently the deacon overseeing mercy ministry. Dan Hargreaves is our treasurer.

Because following this policy will be more time consuming for the deacons and Dan, we ask that anyone requesting assistance allow a minimum of three days for the request to be addressed. This will give the deacons time to consider the request and submit the necessary documentation to Dan.

Requests for prayer from/with the Session, meals, and mercy ministry can be submitted online, here.

Spring Forward!

Just a friendly reminder that we lose an hour Sat night/Sun morning.

Show the love with Johnson Elementary

We have an opportunity to provide breakfast again for Johnson Elementary teachers and staff on Friday, March 22nd. Food items could be brought to the school on the 22nd by 7:15am, or could be dropped off at the church the night before. Baked goods, fruit, yogurt, quiche, etc would be great! Please contact Cherilyn Christie if you are able to provide something for this event.

To sweeten the deal, here's what we've got for you: on Monday we'll draw one name from our list of early registrants to win a copy of The Common Rule: Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction, written by our 2019 keynote, Justin Earley. Repeat: you have GOT to be in that early registrant pool for a chance to win.

Here's what's we've got lined up for this year's conference...

Habits for the Common Good

Saturday, March 16th

8:30am-1:30pm

Union Seminary (3401 Brook Road)

Justin Earley, author of The Common Rule: Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction, will serve as our keynote as we work together to answer these questions:

1. How is the structure of modern life in Richmond shaping our habits in positive and negative ways?

2. What habits must change in your life, your work, and our city for the sake of the common good?

We'll also hear insight on our topic from local speakers:

Erin Rose, Worship Director and Teaching Pastor at East End Fellowship and vocalist with Urban Doxology

and...

Alex Brito, Partner at CURE.

Our morning will conclude with a Q&A moderated by Becca Payne, freelance writer and communications director at Third Church.

Parking will be available on the street and in the lot at Veritas School, located directly across Brook Road from the seminary.
