Announcements

Vestry Meeting - Vestry will meet Thursday, February 20th at 6:00 pm .

Food Pantry Sunday - Food Pantry Sunday is this weekend, February 23rd . We are asking people to bring their non perishable donations in a reusable bag which can be left at the pantry for shoppers to use on their return trips to the pantry.  Many shoppers are now bringing their own reusable bags and this helps the pantry cut down on the cost of paper bags which allows them to spend more on needed food items.

Countywide Litter Clean Up Day - Residents of Goochland are invited on February 22nd from 8 am to Noon to help clean up some of the main roads in our community. Pre-registration is required. To get more information, call 804-556-5340 or go to litterfreegoochland@goochlandva.us.

ECW Meeting - ECW will meet again on Sunday, March 1st after the 11 am service.
