CARITAS

We are proud and humbled to actively participate in the Shelter program run by Caritas once a year. CARITAS (Congregations Around Richmond Involved To Assure Shelter) was organized in the early 1980’s to respond to the huge unmet need for emergency shelter for homeless adults in the cold winter months.

RISC

riscsmallRichmonders Involved to Strengthen Our Communities (RISC) is an interracial, interfaith, nonpartisan organization which brings congregations together to build the power to meet God’s call to ‘do justice’.  In the books of Micah and Matthew, there is a clear requirement to do three things:  faithfulness, mercy and justice.  Most congregations are very good at encouraging our walk with God (faithfulness) and they are often strong at demonstrating kindness (or mercy) with ‘direct service’ programs like CARITAS and Bon Air Juvenile Correctional Center birthday parties.  But when it comes to doing justice—changing the systems in our community that often put people in a position of need—many of those same congregations fall significantly short.

No one congregation or small group of people has enough power by itself to make those systems change. But by coming together with congregations from across Greater Richmond, we can take part in ‘direct action’ to hold responsible officials accountable for justice and fairness in our community.

And since RISC’s member congregations understand that they need the power of more and more organized people to redeem the systems of Greater Richmond—and that God requires all of us to ‘do justice’—BAPC along with many other member congregations is accepting the challenge to turn out its average weekly worship attendance to the annual Nehemiah Action.  The member congregations of RISC are building powerful justice ministries so that they can get beyond the symptoms and solve serious community problems.

RISC 2017 Investment Drive a Huge Success! 

As of press-time, $9,640 has been invested by 25+ BAPC families in our Richmond community through the work of RISC this year! What an amazing commitment, exceeding our goal by 28% and representing the HIGHEST level of BAPC investment ever!

Please join the RISC team to celebrate at our Annual RISC Kick-Off dinner on Thursday, September 28 at 6:00 PM in Room 101-103. We will hear first-hand the progress we are making through RISC to make a difference in people’s lives from one of our working partners, Brian Davis, Director of the Capital Region Workforce Partnership. Brian will reflect on his mission, including his active partnership with Reynolds Community College, the City’s Center for Workforce Innovation (CWI), Church Hill Activities & Tutoring (CHAT), and VCU Health Systems to implement the “RISC model” for building a workforce pipeline* for Health Care.

The RISC Justice Ministry Network Team—Carolyn Carper, Barbara Jacocks, John Rupp, Martha Singdahlsen, and Ernie Wright—will be making personal invitations over the next few weeks. But you don’t need to wait! Sign up to attend on the Bulletin Board outside the church office so we can make preparations. Southminster Presbyterian Church has been invited to join us so I hope you can help provide a warm BAPC welcome.
