Missions Connections

 

vbmbVirginia Baptist Mission Board – Cooperative Missions is our way of giving through the Virginia Baptist Mission Board which has multiple ministries here in Virginia and around the world. There is leadership training, young leader training, church planting, missionary support and more.  In addition, financial support flows to the Southern Baptist Convention entities such as the International Mission Board and North American Mission Board, responsible for missions in other countries and in the US respectively.  We donate to the Lottie Moon Offering of the IMB and Annie Armstrong Offering of NAMB.

Richmond Baptist Association Church Hill Wellness Center provides social and physical help to families living in the Church Hill area.  Each year before school begins we help with a school supply and backpack drive in which items are distributed to area families.  In November we help with Christmas Stores by collecting new toys, games and clothing to be purchased by families at a small price to use for Christmas presents for their children.  Money collected for the gifts goes into a fuel fund to be used to help the residents of the area.
