Calling all educators, nourishers,
movers, and shakers...

On Sunday, February 14, we are hosting a Zoom reception at 12:00 noon to present our new ministry vision of Richmond as a community where every person is thriving and has access to nutritious food and learning opportunities. 

Not only are you invited, you are already involved! The vision comes from our Dream Like Jesus team, a group of laity and clergy, young and seasoned adults, who spent much of 2020 identifying community needs that came to light last year and congregational gifts in people like YOU.

At the reception, come learn about this vision's deep roots in Jesus's dream of heaven on earth... and how you can take part in our next steps together. Amen, and onward!
