Volunteers Needed to Feed Youth on Sunday Nights

Do you love God? Do You love People? There's an awesome way to serve God and share your love with people that's easy as a snack supper. Each Sunday night , the youth who are involved with choir have a quick snacky supper before Large Group starts. We need volunteers to help prepare these dinners for the youth. It's an easy way to serve others and an even easier way to let our students know that the church cares for them. This past fall we had some awesome people step up and now we want you!  So click HERE to sign up for a Sunday evening, or contact Donna in the church office at Donna@hrbcrichmond.org

Thanks a ton!

Spirituality Retreat: October 14-15

Come join us for a two day retreat, Discovering Spirit: God and Us.  Take an evening and a morning to set aside sacred time to nourish your soul and your relationship with God in Christ.  The focus of the retreat will be both educational and experiential.  Attention will be given to teaching various ancient Christian practices and attendees will have the opportunity to experience these practices first-hand.  Activities will include: walking a labyrinth, engaging in lectio divina (close and repetitive reading of scripture), centering prayer, journaling, meditating, and more!  For more information, contact Kristin Francisco .
