Lambs Basket Update

Our July 31, 2017, Lambs Basket pick up was 132 pounds. Thank you for those who participated and to those of you who forgot, we have a brand new month! I found a really great bargain at Food Lion the other day: Buy one get one free of large name brand cereal. Someone had given me money to make a purchase! Four boxes of cereal and four cans of baked beans for $10. I cannot say enough what your contributions mean to me, our church and our community. Love in Christ, Donna Washington, Partnering with the Mission Committee

A big thank you to Allen Jenkins & Debbie Bretches for leading the middle school Passport Mission Trip! The group of 12 went to Greensboro College in North Carolina and spent a week discipling to others and coming closer to God. Everyone had a wonderful time and we are glad everyone is home safely.
A big thank you to Corinne Abernathy for helping to lead the high school Tri-Cities Workcamp Mission Trip! A group of 11 went to Dinwiddie, Colonial Heights, and Petersburg, VA and spent a week fixing and repairing homes in an area that needed it the most. Many of these residents would otherwise not have been able to afford the work that was completed. Everyone had a wonderful time and we are all back home safe.
Richmond Flying Squirrels Faith Night is next Thursday, August 10. This is a last call for anyone wishing to attend. The youth will have the opportunity to take the field and sing the national anthem with the players. Tickets are only $10 each. Bring your whole family!

Lamb’s Basket Fundraiser Change

The next Tomato Sandwich Fundraiser was originally scheduled for Saturday August 19, 2017. The date is being CHANGED to Saturday, August 5, 2017 – same place (pantry) same time. Same good

food and fellowship, too. The reason for this change can be blamed on Mother Nature. Tomatoes are coming in fast and furious now but may not be in mid to late August. So Nancy Yeary has asked to move the event up so that there will be assurance of plenty of ripe tomatoes. If you have already made your reservations for the original date and can attend on the revised date, Do Nothing. Just show up on the rescheduled date. All reservations for the original date will be moved to the new date. However, if you are unable to keep the original date, please call Donna Washington at 804-437-4363. Thank you.
