Children’s Ministry Volunteers Meeting

There will be a meeting for all children’s ministry volunteers (at all levels) after our worship service on Sunday, 9/9, in the Fellowship Hall. If you’re already volunteering with children’s ministry, or if you would like to begin doing so in the fall, please plan to attend! We’ll have lunch together, review our Child Safety policy, and discuss how we can best love and serve our kids as the new school year begins. We want to be a church where children thrive and flourish, growing in the love of Jesus. Thank you, volunteers, for helping to make this a reality! 

Partnership with Johnson Elementary

Our church has an exciting outreach opportunity to partner with Johnson Elementary School this year. Kevin and Cherilyn have been in communication with the Principal, Dr. Daniels, and she has given us some practical ways we can support the students and teachers as the school year starts. If you are interested in being involved in this partnership, please plan to attend an short interest meeting immediately after service this Sunday, August 12th.

Might you have an interest in working with our youth this year?

The youth leadership team will be meeting to plan for the fall on Saturday July 21, 2018 at 10:00 AM at the Wibberly Home (1804 Idlebrook Court, Richmond, VA  23238).  Brunch will be provided. If you like young people and might have an interest in volunteering to assist in some way this next year, you are invited to come join us to find out more about ways to get involved.  There are opportunities for mentors, activity and service project planners (behind the scenes), small group leaders/teachers, and more.  The regularity and time commitment is up to you.  Please let Kathy Wibberly know via email (katwibb@yahoo.com) or text (434.906.4960) if you plan to come out on July 21 so we can make sure we have enough food.   If you'd like to get involved, but can't make it on July 21, let Kathy know that as well.
