We believe that church is a place to grow in faith while having fun. Activities enjoyed by our Parish family throughout the year include:
Chat and Chew: On the second and fourth Sunday of every month, a coffee hour with light refreshments is held after the 10:30 service. This is a wonderful time to meet members of the congregation to develop deeper relationships.
Monthly Church Breakfast: During the school year a church breakfast is held every 2nd Saturday prior to the distribution of bean and rice to anyone in need.
Wednesday Suppers and Bible study are held during the school year.
Shrove Tuesday: On Shrove Tuesday (the day before the beginning of Lent) the Vestry puts on a dinner for the congregation. It alternates between a traditional pancake supper and a Mardi Gras celebration complete with jambalaya, king cake, beads and masks.
Pentecost picnic at the river: On Pentecost Sunday, we gather at a hunt club on the shores of the Nottoway River for our church service followed by a picnic and an afternoon on the river.
Fall Oyster Roast: Every November on a Sunday afternoon the adults of our church family bring friends and gather at a local hunt club for an oyster roast and covered dish supper.
Christmas Luncheon and a visit from Santa: Following a 10:30 service in the Christmas season we have a Parish luncheon complete with a visit from Santa.
Other Parish Family activities in the year include a Palm Sunday Breakfast and palm cross tying, Maundy Thursday Dinner, an Easter Egg Hunt, a Fall Pool Party and church service, Pumpkin Carving, Advent Wreath Making and a Blessing of the animals service.
