Weekly Update

Hopefully, you received an update earlier today from Emily concerning a new opportunity to gather outside for worship starting this Sunday, June 28th at 10 am. In case you missed it, here is the Special Announcement again.

Reservations are required and may be made on this link. If you are uncomfortable using the sign up genius link, you are welcome to email Cindy at so she can do it for you.

We are excited to regather but please know we are taking every precaution to ensure your safety.

If you are not ready to join us this Sunday outside, we will be hosting a Facebook Live Service at 11 am (please note the time change)!

Congratulations - Please join us in congratulating one of our own members, Terry Ebright, for being awarded the Hometown Hero award from the law firm of Allen and Allen. This special award is given to individuals around the area that generate positive change to others. As the Food Pantry Manager for GoochlandCares, Terry has definitely made a huge impact in Goochland! Help us in sending a heartfelt congratulations to Terry!

Office Phone Down - We want you to know that the office phone is not working at this time. A repair person will be here Thursday to address the issue. Until then, the best way to reach the office is by email at

Noonday Prayer - Join Maria this Wednesday at 12:30 pm on Facebook Live for a special noonday prayer service. Take a moment to rest and renew mid-week.

Please send Cindy at a high resolution picture of you/your family (maybe including your pets?) in front of your door. We can't do this without you so get out on a pretty day and take a picture if possible.
