Announcements, 4.20.10

Lots coming up! Family in Need A few people from City Church have developed a relationship with a woman and her 13 year old son who are currently homeless (the husband/father is currently incarcerated). Right now they are not able to get a spot in the shelters through Richmond's central intake for homeless people although social services has helped them a good deal. Theirs is a complicated situation and one that may be beyond our scope to help them. Please pray for them and contact Erik (erik [at] if God is moving you to help this family or if you know of any immediate options for short-term shelter.

Mercy Fund, 4/25 This Sunday we will take up a special mercy fund offering. Whatever is given will be kept separate from our general budget and will be used to aid those in our congregation and community, who have emergency needs. Please prayerfully consider what you might give.

Vespers, 4/25 All are invited to join us for our monthly Vespers service this Sunday, immediately after our regular church service. This is a time for us to share a meal and discussion about various events and opportunities within the church. Please bring a dish to share!
