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.

Fellowship

WHAT’S NEW

This year, our season of Lent will be a Season of Prayer. Our members and friends will be invited, supported, and guided in a regular prayer practice for the 40 days of the Lenten Season. Those who already engage in daily prayer are encouraged to continue their practice. Those who are willing to enter into a deeper, more meaningful relationship with God, are encouraged to set aside time each day to become aware of God’s presence, to open themselves to God, and to respond to God. A guide to daily prayer will be distributed in the worship bulletins on the first Sunday of Lent, March 10, and will be available in the Narthex and Welcome Foyer throughout the Lenten season. Weekly prayer encouragement will be emailed each Tuesday to those who receive the Weekly News.

Some of us are hesitant to pray because we have questions, doubts, or concerns about prayer. Therefore, the themes and messages during our Season of Prayer worship services will address questions that some of us may have regarding our conversations with God.

March 10 – Do You Hear Me, God? How Do I Know?
March 17 – O Lord, Does Praying for Others Really Make a Difference?
March 24 – I Blew It, Lord. Since You Already Know Everything, Why Do I Need to Tell You About It?
April 7 – Give Me Patience, Lord, and Give It to Me Now!
April 14 – I Just Can’t Pray Anymore

Many of us have experienced the power and the grace of someone praying for us. During our Season of Prayer, those who are interested will have the opportunity to select a Secret Prayer Partner. Those choosing a prayer partner make a commitment to pray for another person, without their knowledge, at least twice a week throughout Lent. Those who make the commitment to pray for another will also have someone praying for them. More information about Secret Prayer Partners may be found in another article in this Outreach.

BON AIR TRIALOGUE
Interfaith Discussions

 Join us as we gather with our community brothers and sisters for our annual interfaith dialogues. It is a wonderful opportunity to talk with people from the Muslim, Jewish, and Christian traditions, to build relationships, and to develop greater understanding and unity. This year, our theme will be “Home”.  Each Thursday evening gathering begins at 6:45 with a time of food and fellowship before our discussions begin at 7:00.

March 28 at St. Edwards Catholic Church
Living faith at home

April 4 at the Islamic Center of Virginia
Our houses of worship – Our spiritual homes

April 11 at Congregation Or Ami
Living our faith in our home in Richmond

What happens at the Trialogue? After a brief introductory presentation by the host religious leader, those present form small groups that include members of various faith traditions. The majority of the time is spent in discussion within these small groups. The host group provides food for snacking.

 

 

VOLLEYBALL RETURNS
 Volleyball returns to Thursday nights (7pm) in January, February and March.
This is an intergenerational, multi-ability opportunity for fellowship, exercise and joy. Your attendance makes it possible for everyone else to have fun.
Come feel the love.

 

VOICES OF JUBILEE GOSPEL CHOIR IS LAUNCHED!

With deep gratitude we thank the Church and Society Ministry Team, the Session and the whole congregation for your support of the launching of Voices of Jubilee Gospel Choir at Bon Air Juvenile Correctional Center. We have had three rehearsals and will meet twice in December to sing with the youth at BAJCC. The impact has been tremendous already.   Each week we have had 24 youth and there is a waiting list for others to join.   It has been an amazing experience hearing the drab room of a prison fill the voices of youth in song. We are blessed to have the gifts of an amazing choir director, Makeda McCreary and accompanist Stephen Roach who make this all possible.

As we share our story, the support for this ministry is growing. We are thrilled to share that River Road  Baptist Church has joined the ministry as a partner providing seed money and committing to ongoing funding in 2019. East End Fellowship is our other partner providing human resources through the leadership of our directors and choir members. We are continuing to build funding support from other churches and community members.
