A Word from Pastor Matt
Welcome to our Coronavirus Resource page. We are a church in the Northside of Richmond that is committed to making disciples of Jesus who are Joyful Worshipers, Nurturing Family, and Engaged Neighbors. In line with our mission, we are committed to helping our church members and as many of our Northside neighbors as we can walk through this pandemic of COVID-19. We hope that the resources and points of connection on this page are helpful to you. In this season, where it is important that we are physically separated, it is also important that we don’t try to go through this alone. We’d love to connect with you and walk with you, if possible. God Bless.
