Sunday School in our New Building: We are excited about the opening of classroom space in our new building. Please join us for an informal discussion of how we can transition to our new space on Sunday, November 17 after the service. Our plans are to meet in the new fellowship hall so we can see the layout and explore ideas for their use. 

FCSS: Food will be picked up by Criag Conboy on the second week of every month. You can help by bringing cans, jars, cereal, peanut butter, vegetables and other basic healthy items. Please give generously to help the hungry of Fluvanna County.

Adult Bible Studies: Did you ever wish you knew more about the Bible but you had trouble taking the time to really dig in?

We currently have an Adult Sunday School Class that meets on Sundays at 11:00 am and a Bible Study Group that meets on Monday evenings first for supper at 6:15 pm followed by a time of study and sharing at 7:00 pm. Our Monday night group is studying Paul’s letter to the Romans. If you can join us, please let Carol Frost know (phone: 571-213-4286; email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Spending Time with the Bible: Center yourself for a moment, asking God to speak to you through the scriptures. Then read slowly. To give you a roadmap, we offer reading suggestions based upon the Daily Office contained in the Book of Common Prayer. You can also find these readings online at www.BibleGateway.com/reading-plans/bcp-daily-office/today. Don’t rush—it is more important that you take time to hear the voice of God than it is to finish all of the readings on any particular day. As you read, take note of words or phrases that draw your attention, and meditate on the meaning that those words or phrases hold for you. Here are the readings for this week:
