GATHER

CCDA National Conference – Raleigh Durham: Each year, the Christian Community Development Association national conference draws more than 2,500 people from around the world to share in best practices of Christian community development (also known as poverty alleviation) and this year it is being held in Raleigh – Durham, September 24th through 27th. If you’re interested in trying to connect with other people from City Church who are interested in going, please contact Blake Stack at blakestack@icloud.com.

SERVE

Mercy Fund on Sunday: We will take up a special mercy fund offering at Sunday’s service, as we always do on the last Sunday of the month. Whatever is given will be kept separate from our general budget and will be used to aid those in our congregation, and in our community, who have emergency needs. Please prayerfully consider what you might give.

Cross Over Clinic: A team of City Church volunteers is exploring the opportunity to serve at Cross Over Minstry's healthcare clinic in downtown Richmond (108 Cowardin Avenue). There will be an informational meeting on June 16th at 7:30pm at the West End location (8600 Quiocassin Road). If you're interested in attending this meeting and possibly joining the team as a volunteer, please contact Barrett Clark at barretteclark@gmail.com.
