Children's Ministry Covid Mitigations
Due to the circulating and highly contagious Delta variant, CDC currently recommends universal indoor masking by all students (age 2 and older), staff, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of their vaccination status. Therefore, our PRG Team has decided that effective immediately, ALL participants and volunteers in children's ministry (Nursery, Sunday School, Wednesday Nights, special events, etc.) are required to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status when indoors.

The National Church

We continue to pray for those affected by Hurricane Ida. Please remember that any work related to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) will start only after all the first responders leave the area. There will be more specific calls to help in the coming weeks and months. The Virginia Conference strongly advises against any self-deployment to these areas. The work of recovery will continue in the coming months and years, and Serving Ministries invite churches to be part of this long journey. Learn more
How We Are Helping
Earlier this week, Essential Church (a local mission-focused church) sent a 26' truck of food south for hurricane relief. The Storehouse Food Pantry donated about 25 cases of food to the effort during their collection on Sunday.
