As mentioned at the beginning of the year, we have been meeting approximately twice a month. Over the winter months, we have begun to meet more frequently with St. Matthias and plan to meet with St. David’s soon as well in effort to build up youth ministry within our convocation.
Coming up this summer, we will be attending the IMPACT Richmond Mission Trip for our third straight year from July 14-20. If you are not familiar with this mission, it is a wonderful local mission that gathers ~100-125 youth and adults from Virginia and the surrounding states (WV & TN in past years) to make repairs and updates on local homes. Local residents can apply to be considered for this mission work each year. “Gurus” (people with construction/home repair experience) help guide each group’s work and give them what they need to complete the job(s).
Over the past two years, we have built a ramp, fixed a roof overhang, painted interior and exterior walls, and cleared out lawn debris amongst other things. We hope you will join us for this great trip - your friends are invited! If you are interested in being our female chaperone or know someone that we should ask, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
