Colonial Heights Presbyterian Church is a congregation that 
values a diversity of belief. Whether you're full of faith or full of doubt, 
you'll find people who have been there and accept you for where you are.

We welcome all people to worship, pray, eat, seek spiritual answers and enjoy life within this community of faith. All are welcome!
Interested in CHPC's Churchwide Retreat?
The Churchwide Retreat is something both of us never wish to miss. There is no better place to be than the mountains of Banner Elk, North Carolina! Spending time at Holston Camp allows us to get to know our fellow church members better, to relax, laugh, learn, and grow closer together.

We are looking forward to learning about various spiritual practices from our special guest facilitator that will help us to deepen our faith in meaningful ways. Here again, the camp is the perfect place to "Be Still and Know that I Am God."

We can't wait for this retreat and we hope you will come out and join us. Come and see how a sabbath rest can help us all shake off the fast pace of life.

Hope to see you there,
Dave and Alda Smith

God has been at work within the story of this family and God is certainly at work within the story of or lives. This week focuses on the fourth chapter as Boaz speaks with the community at the city gates about Ruth and Naomi's redemption
Sunday's Scripture:
Ruth 4:1-22, NRSV

Sermon Title:
“We are Witnesses"
