“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”Galatians 6:9
We hope you will hold Saturday, September 7 and Sunday, September 8 on your calendar for Reach Out RVA 3.0. This will be our starting point for bringing summer activities to a close and the start of a new church year.
On Saturday, September 7, from 9 AM to 1 PM our focus will be on the neighborhood where Oak Grove- Bellemeade Elementary School is located. For several years via the Micah Initiative, Trinity has had a significant
volunteer presence at the school. Trinity member, Bob Argabright, is an advocate in this community, and on Saturday, Bob will connect us to a variety of work projects that will benefit the school and the community. If you are interested in volunteering for one of these projects, the opportunity to sign up will be available here coming soon!
Then on Sunday, September 8, after the completion of our worship services and Sunday school, we will gather at the community center beside Oak Grove-Bellemeade Elementary School for a picnic from 2-5 PM. A catered meal will be provided minus the dessert. We will ask Trinity members to continue the tradition of bringing your signature desserts to share.
As a part of this weekend, we are in the process of collecting gently used bicycles. These bicycles will be given an inspection and tune up if needed at the Charlie Thomas Bicycle Shop. This neighborhood based repair shop is
named in honor of Charlie Thomas, a former Trinity member, who was instrumental in connecting the Richmond biking community to the children in the Oak Grove- Bellemeade neighborhood.
If you have a gently used bike you would like to donate, you can bring it to Trinity and put it in the POD that will be located at the back of the church.
The POD will be at Trinity from Friday, August 9 until Friday, September 6.
If you are unable to bring the bike to the church contact Bob Argabright at email@example.com to arrange to have the bike picked up.
If you have additional questions, contact the Trinity staff.
