PREPARE & CONNECT

This Week’s Sermon: Our series “Songs of Summer” continues this week as Joshua preaches on Psalm 33. We invite you to read ahead as a way to prepare for Sunday’s service.

City Church Basics: Our next session of City Church Basics will take place on Friday, September 12th (7-9:30pm) and Saturday, September 13th (9:30am to noon) at Grace Covenant. City Church Basics explains who we are as a church and what it means to be a member. It is a necessary step towards formally joining the church, although membership is not required. If you’re interested in taking part in this next session, please RSVP to Val Catrow (val@citychurchrva.com). Contact Erik (erik@citychurchrva.com) with questions.
