By some good financial planning and help from grants, we were able to replace the decrepit old Dodge church van with a 2019 Ford Transit passenger van.


You may recall that the Dodge was vandalized earlier in the year and the Child Development Center needs the second vehicle to accommodate Chesterfield County’s plan to put students back in the classrooms.  Ivey’s CDC has soldiered through during the shutdown and has acquired some grants from the state to help make this van purchase happen.


We did have help from a church member’s son who works at Crossroads Ford.  We got a very generous warranty, so we do not expect any large outlays for maintenance and repair.


We did have to dip into our cash reserves so as not to borrow and accrue debt for the purchase, so we would gratefully accept contributions to replenish those.


Enjoy our new vehicle in photos.

We will meet this December 14th at Carini's Italian Restaurant in Colonial Heights at 6:30pm.  Spread the word, put on your elf ears and Christmas sweaters, and let's get together and fellowship.   –Steve Barcena



Due to an abundance of hay at the farm, we have lost our storage area for metal.  Please hold on to large items like refrigerators, appliances, etc. until further notice, as we can longer provide a pick-up service.  A table for aluminum drink cans has been placed outside the church, behind the dumpster.  Aluminum, copper, brass, and stainless steel will be accepted also.  The next scheduled metal drive at the church will likely be in the spring.

Food Pantry: Cereal, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Spaghetti 1 lb boxes, Canned Pasta Sauce, Syrup, Pancake Mix, Rice, Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap, Hamburger Helper, Sugar, Canned Tuna, Pudding and Fruit Cups are  needed.  Please bring your donations and leave them in the food pantry bucket located in the Narthex.  Specifically, we request easy things for children to fix for themselves.

Our Daily Bread Food Pantry is looking for volunteers to help with distributing food or picking up items from the grocery store. If you can help or would like more information, please contact Bernadette Gilmore, 804-914-0293.
