TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION: GHANA TO AMERICA - Join us for our last gathering on Thursday, August 1st at 10 am in the Parish Hall to reflect on Bishop Curry’s Truth and Reconciliation Pilgrimage to Ghana, and expand your own knowledge of the history of slavery. Using the 3-part video series created by Bishop Michael Curry, we will facilitate a thoughtful discussion on our responsibility to learn and grow from our past. 

YMCA BRIGHT BEGINNINGS BACKBACKS - Many thanks to everyone who supported the Bright Beginnings Backpack program this year. In addition to providing 20 filled backpacks, many financial donations were received so we can send a check for $236 to this very worthy cause.

ECW SUMMER MINISTRY - Don't forget to support ECW's summer ministry of collecting items for the Virginia Correctional Center for Women in Goochland. There is an approved list of items in the Parish Hall and Narthex. You can bring your donated items and deposit them in the collection boxes in the Parish Hall until August 25th.
