The Clinic - Saturday, September 16 - 10 am - 2 pm

The Clinic is probably one of the biggest events that HRBC hosts every year.  The intent behind the Clinic, however, is that it not be a one day event but a transformative experience for both our volunteers and guests.  Each year, the Judea team evaluates the Clinic – what went really well and what can we improve?  All this with an eye to change all our hearts to look a little more like Jesus’.

While there are many parts to the clinic that do not change from year to year, we do try to implement new ways to both provide services to those in need while developing a relationship with our guests.  We have learned that having too many people may feel good to us initially but in the long run results in no time for good conversations between advocates and our guests.  Therefore, we are trying to offer more, yet smaller, clinics where relationships can be formed while also meeting the needs of those around us.

We will need everyone’s help to make this successful.  There is literally a job for everyone no matter what your physical limitations might be.  Of course, the largest need at all of the Clinics is being an advocate.  The title may sound intimidating but to be honest, it is the best job there is.  An advocate takes assists a family in making appointments with services and then shows them around to the various services.  Advocates listen, laugh, eat lunch and pray with their guests.  The relationship formed can be life changing for both the advocate and the family.  The HRBC Clinic this year is on September 16 from 10:00 am until 2:00.  We have also set the date for the Clinic at Oregon Hill Baptist Center for October 26th.  Please save both of these dates!

With any new change, flexibility is always needed.  If you have been involved, tell someone about it and see if they will join in this year.  If you have never been to one of the Clinics, sign up – let Matthew or Laura Wert know what you would like to do or are able to do.  We will find something that will fit your gifts.

Trip to Washington Nats Baseball Game - Take 2!

 

We had such a fun time touring Nationals ballpark on July 6 and we were such great fans, the Nationals invited us to come back and visit them again.

Actually, the Washington Nationals reached out to apologize for how poorly things were handled on July 6. In an effort to appease us, they have offered us free tickets to watch another game. I am inviting you to join Derbyshire Baptist Church for another baseball game on Friday, August 25 against the NY Mets … with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 pm. 

To cover the cost of the bus, please make a check payable to Derbyshire for $20.00. Our schedule will be similar to the last trip.

We will meet at the DBC church parking lot at 3:00 pm on Friday, and depart by 3:30pm. A Martz Bus will transport us to and from the game … and by home by around 11:30ish.

We will be seated in section 109 about 2/3 of the way down toward the field. This is a similar seat as before but on the third baseline … with the sun at our backs. 

If you are unable to attend or do not want to attend, we will advertise the tickets for the full price of $60 … and attempt to recoup your initial payment. Please understand, that we cannot guarantee that we will be able to recoup your full payment, but we will try.

Please contact Greta Satterfield at Derbyshire Baptist Church by July 27th if you want to go to this game, so we will have ample time to advertise for others to go.

Grief Support Group offered at HRBC

Grief is normal.  Following the death of someone close or another significant loss, many emotions and reactions arise--some overwhelming, some unexpected.  Sometimes it may seem that grief will never end.
Relationships are complicated and unique; the same is true of grief. It may be helpful to join others in the process of grieving, too. The death or other loss may have occurred many years ago but recently triggered. Join us as you are able the first and third Monday of each month starting June 5, 7-8:30pm at Huguenot Road Baptist Church.  This support group is open to those within HRBC’s fellowship as well as community members. If you have questions or if your grief is fresh, please call Alice Waller (leave message), 804-794-1136.
Our own Alice Waller will facilitate this group.  She is a certified thanatologist and has extensive experience with grief and in helping individuals and groups with grief resolution.
 

Join a Summer Reading Group!

Do you compile a reading list each summer?  Have you ever read a book you really wanted to share with others?  This summer, HRBC is combining both and invites you to join one or more of our summer reading groups.  Each group will commit to reading a novel and discuss the implications of the story for people who follow in the way of Jesus.  There is a title for everyone, including families!  Each group will conclude with an activity that engages the group with the heart of the story.  You can register for a group, beginning Sunday, June 4. Each book will cost $5.  Then, plan to attend a kickoff event Sunday, June 25 at 5:00 pm where you can hear an introduction to each book, receive some guidance for reading, and set a discussion schedule.

Lewis.  Explore the themes of Narnia and how childlike faith in Aslan changes the children who stumble into the world of Narnia through the wardrobe.  Concludes with a viewing of the movie, The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.  This is a great activity for families to participate in together! 
Night, a short memoir by Elie Wiesel.  Struggle with the author as he comes to grips with whether the God of his Jewish family can be found in the evil of the Nazi concentration camp.  Concludes with a trip to the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC.

Cry, The Beloved Country, by Alan Patton.  Learn, through the eyes of a Zulu pastor, of how systems established to favor one group of people over other groups tear at the fabric and dignity of humanity created in the image of God.  Follow Umfundisi Stephen Kumalo as he seeks to learn the whereabouts of his son, Absalom, who left home to work in the mines of Johannesburg.  Concludes with a viewing of the film, Cry, the Beloved Country.
