Raised Up in September

harveyreliefOur world is showing it’s need for Jesus Christ more and more every day.  Whether we are facing civil unrest or natural disasters, we are being called upon by the Lord to be raised up and counted during the month of September.  We are the church, the body of Christ, commissioned as the Lord’s representatives in the earth.

This begins with our commitment to share the good news of Jesus Christ through word, deed, and sign.  This involves demonstrating our love for people in concrete and honest ways.  Invite your friends and neighbors to worship with you as we find fresh wisdom from God’s ancient source of truth, the Holy Scriptures this month.

Join us in supporting those devastated by Hurricane Harvey through UMCOR and see the five ways you can help right now. Remember also, September is Hunger Awareness Month and the Society of Saint Andrew asks for our involvement including participating in the Virginia Day of Action, Friday September 29, 2017.

Plus, here is our September Calendar and newsletter.

Baptismal Service Following Sunday Service

baptism 5This coming Sunday, July 30th, you’re invited to share in the baptismal service for Lily Walton, Henry Horne, and Tripp Walton following our 11:00 AM service.  We will process from Laurel Hill to Varina on the James where each confirmand will confess their faith in Jesus Christ and enter into this new relationship with Christ in baptism.

Dying to themselves, they will rise in newness of life to serve the Lord. You are asked to come and renew your commitment of faith and pledge your faith and help to those newly baptized.

We’ll see you Sunday at Laurel Hill then drive down Varina Road to Varina on the James for our service.
