Easter Sunday is Approaching ~ Reserve Your Seat Today
Due to COVID restrictions, seating is limited. Please notify the church office if you are planning to attend the 11:00 worship service. Please provide the number of people in your party and
specify any children between the ages of 1-10.

We are considering adding a 2nd Easter Sunday Worship service at 12:30 geared toward families with children, with the possibility of a less traditional egg hunt due to COVID restrictions.

We will need to know who is interested in attending the worship service and egg hunt as well as who is interested in helping to supervise the egg hunt.

We need several volunteers before we can move forward
with these plans.

Bible Study
Hope Beyond the Bars

We all deserve to know the
redemptive power & love of our
Lord, Jesus Christ and you can
help make that happen.
In 2021 Hope Beyond the Bars began offering a Bible study program for inmates in the Virginia Department of Corrections. Each participant will receive a study book to read on their own and answer study questions. Each week, they will email their answers to the program leader who will compile the answers to share with the group. This will give everyone a chance to see others perspective and insight as we learn and grow in our faith together.

If you would like to sponsor an inmate, you can choose to donate $100 for Bible study materials or donate $500 to cover all ministry expenses for one year. Detailed expenses are spelled out below.

Bible study books & Jpay email stamps for weekly participation are approximately $25 per quarter or $100 per year.
(Jpay is the monitored email system used by the Virginia Department of Corrections)

Additional Program costs per participant are approximately $400 per year and include:
  • Donation to commissary as incentive for continued participation $35 per quarter + $6.95 fee = 167.80 per year
  • Jpay stamps for 3 emails per week with director w/ return stamps $1.50 per week @52 weeks = $78.00 per year
  • 2 cards/letters per month $3.00 per month = $36.00 per year
  • Commissary donation for birthday gift $25 + $6.95 fee = $31.95
  • Commissary donation for Christmas gift $25 + $6.95 fee = $31.95
