*REMINDERS*

Maymont Elementary - School supplies We have been in touch with Maymont Elementary (located in the Randolph neigborhood, near City Church) this spring to better understand some of their needs. They have again requested help with their dwindling classroom supplies and have given a list of items needed. With a tight budget, supplies for kids are hard to come by. If you and/or your small group would have interest adopting a classroom please contact Jessee Caleb (calebjk2 [at] gmail.com or 804-387-1134). The deadline for donating supplies in April 4.

Worship in Highland Park, April 11 We will join with Lloyd Price's church (Grace Community Outreach) for worship at the Parks and Rec building in Hardy Park on April 11th. This is a great opportunity for us to live out our desire to partner with other churches in Richmond. Sunday School will begin at 10 AM and the service will start around 11 AM. A potluck meal will follow (please bring a dish to share).

Islam, Literacy, and the Gospel, April 17 Many of us have the sense that Islam is growing in power and influence throughout the world as well as America.  How should Christians respond to Muslims amidst growing fear and violence in our world?  Why are some of the most impoverished countries primarily Muslim?  Jay McGee (Wycliffe Bible Translators) will be discussing these questions and exploring how we can share the gospel and promote peace by supporting literacy and education in Muslim communities around the world. This discussion will be taking place on Saturday, April 17 at 7:30 PM at Rev It Up (1211 W. Main St.).
