Summer in the City (Church)

City Groups might be on break for the summer, but City Church has plenty of events on the calendar to keep you busy over the next few months. Take a look at a few things we've got lined up. Hope to see you there!

Women's Bible Studies

There are two groups of women meeting on Monday evenings to complete a study on the book of Colossians--one hosted by Meg Haden and one hosted by Kelly Blanchard. These just got started and will go on for 6 to 7 weeks, so if you're interested, come and join us. Contact Meg ( with questions.

Friday Night Supper

Our next Friday Night Supper will be on Friday, June 22nd. As a reminder, these are a chance for us to gather outside of Sundays and enjoy a smaller, casual meal in people’s homes across the city. If you are interested in taking part, please contact Rebecca Hendrix at

Vacation Bible School...for Adults!

On Tuesday, June 26th City Church is partnering with Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church (1627 Monument Avenue) for a special session on ministry with International Students at VCU. The session begins with dinner at 6pm ($5 per person or $12 per family). From 6:45pm to 8pm, there will be classes and nursery care for children and a practical and informative session on how our churches can care for the international students in our backyard. Feel free to contact Andrew Case ( if you plan to attend or if you have further questions.

Summer Supper Series

We typically do not have our monthly Vespers dinners in the summer; instead we organize monthly(ish) weeknight suppers in different neighborhoods around the city. Just like Vespers, these are pot luck, so make sure to bring a side. Summer Supper Series dates and locations are...

  • Wednesday, June 27th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the picnic shelter near the Carillon in Byrd Park. Contact: Leah Eldridge (
  • Wednesday, July 18th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm in the Church Hill area (exact location TBD). Contact: Patrick Shay (
  • Wednesday, August 8th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Humphrey Calder Park. Contact: Jennifer Murphy (
  • Saturday, Augsut 25th (time TBD) at Fox Elementary School. Contact: Erik Bonkovsky (

City Church Forums: History

This summer, the City Church Forums will focus on history. We've got two forums lined up for you...

  • On Wednesday, July 11th, Ben Campbell will lead a discussion on the history of Richmond.
  • On Wednesday, August 1st, Russ Finer, executive director of Beth Ahabah, will lead a discussion on the history of Beth Ahabah, the synagogue that so graciously hosts our services each week.

Both forums will take place in the Beth Ahabah Chapel from 7:30pm to 9pm.


We're sure to add more events to the calendar as the summer progresses, so please check back in for updates!
