Parish Life

Meal Train
A parishioner and their family are in need of some meals. There are 6 folks in the household, and this is an opportunity to provide much-needed respite to our beloved sibling. We are looking for 2-3 meals to be provided each week for the foreseeable future. Order a meal from a local restaurant to be delivered or cook a meal at home and coordinate a hands-free drop-off. There are special COVID guidelines for food prep that we ask you to follow. In advance, thank you for signing up to help.

Connecting Through Calls
Part of church is staying in community, and during COVID we’ve all worked to stay connected. If you would like to receive a call (or make contacts with other GHTC parishioners) please contact Mother Kim to learn more.

Christian Formation

Outdoor Formation Opportunities 3/21 & 3/28
Starting this week we have two opportunities for outdoor, COVID safe formation in the generously offered yard of the Martin family (3615 Hawthorne Ave, Richmond, VA 23222) on 3/21 and 3/28. We will be gathering at 3:00 p.m. for a half-hour time of song, activities, and prayer for kids with Aaron in the back yard and fellowship for parents with clergy in the front yard. Interested families must sign-up in order to attend. If you are interested and haven’t signed up yet click here, and if you have any questions just ask Aaron Davis.

Faith and the Arts Discussion Group
This group meets every Sunday at 4:00 p.m. on Zoom. Participants (who want to) will take turns sharing a poem, music, paintings, or another form of art for informal discussion.

Contact Kathleen Thomas (phone is 804-338-5096) to receive the link to join. This group is planning to run until June 13.

Book Club
Our regular book club will be meeting again on April 19, via Zoom, to discuss Edith Wharton's The Custom of the Country. Anyone interested in joining the group should contact Mary Ann Blankenship.

Outreach

Women’s History and Voices
If you follow us on Facebook you can see that this week we are highlighting women’s voices from the pulpit. Women fill all orders of ministry in the Episcopal Church: the laity, deaconate, priesthood, episcopate, and even our Presiding Bishop has been a woman! Celebrate these voices and engage in holy listening around the sermons we share this week as Women’s History Month continues. We recognize all voices as holy. Women were the first to proclaim the resurrection. Women followed Christ as disciples and they were the first hosts of churches in their homes. Without women in the church, we wouldn’t be a church.
Earth Day Clean-Up
Join the Team! Sign up here to be part of the James River clean-up on April 24. Because we are joining a larger team of volunteers in our community, we need your commitment by March 25. It’s a great way to get outside during warmer weather!





Worship & Music
Samples from Sunday
This week’s “Samples from Sunday” is the beautiful and well-loved “The Lord’s Prayer” by Albert Hay Malotte performed by James Taylor, Tenor, and Charles Staples, Pianist. This moving and expressive presentation was featured in our online worship service on March 14. Thanks to James and Charles for sharing their musical gifts with us. Be sure to subscribe to the GHTC YouTube Music Channel to be notified of new videos as they are posted!


Adult Choir Get Together
There will be a virtual get together for the Adult Choir this Thursday, March 18 at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.

Prayers for Healing - Live Every Friday
In this time of COVID we have transitioned to live-streaming the Prayers for Healing as part of our Red Door Ministry. You can tune in via Facebook at 2:00 p.m. to watch Mother Kim every Friday.
