"Behold Your God" • 1:00 PM

This will be the last meeting of a twelve-week study of God’s character and personality. We will meet at 1:00 PM on Tuesdays at the church and the class will last approximately 1½ hours.

Another Behold Your God study will be offered in the near future. Information will be available when dates are finalized.

Grief Support Group • 1:00 PM

Our Grief Support group will meet to offer each other spiritual support, comfort, and the opportunity to share their experiences. This is an opportunity for anyone who has gone through loss, such as the loss of a spouse, someone to cancer, a parent, sudden loss, or the loss of a child. Spouses, caregivers, parents and others affected by life-changing loss are welcome.

We will meet safely in the Fellowship Hall. If you have questions, please contact Teresa Moffitt.

March for Life, Washington DC

March for Life • VIRTUAL
The annual march in Washington, D.C., will not take place this year. Instead, the usual pro-life rally will be hosted virtually on January 29, and a small group of pro-life leaders will walk the usual marching route. The group is encouraging pro-lifers across the country who usually travel to the capital for the event to participate virtually. Link here.

Annual Meeting Video
The video coverage of our Light of Christ Annual Meeting on January 10 is available in the photo and video gallery for 2021.

Light of Christ is proud to again support the Richmond Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) through donations to a Virtual Baby Shower.

The PRC accepts new baby clothing and toys, diapers, formula, cribs, car seats, gently used maternity clothing, and more. Please bring unwrapped gifts to the crib located in the narthex. The gifts we give make it possible to offer free services at the PRC.

In 2019, they facilitated 2,091 visits, conducted 463 ultrasounds and 809 pregnancy tests, and received 2,805 phone calls from teens, women, and men looking for help. The PRC does not refer or provide for abortion.

Our friend and fellow servant of Christ, Bob Dalzell, is now in a place of peace. We pray for God's grace and comfort for Pat in the days ahead. Bob passed into eternity on December 26, 2020. Memorial plans will be announced in the coming days.

Our food tub and winter

Your contribution of one or more cans or boxes of non-perishable food for people in need is critical in the coming months. Your gifts are truly a blessing to local families who know hunger.

Our food tub is in the narthex near the coatrack. Each week volunteers from Light of Christ take the donations to Gleamers & Blenders and Shiloh Baptist Church for distribution. Please help this important, local ministry share food and the hope that comes through Jesus Christ.

The Challenges of Reopening

Guidelines for Worship

Please read and consider the guidelines for Light of Christ parishioners and guests as we return to worship in our building.

In addition to the sanctuary worship we will provide a live stream of the service for those at home.

Eucharist at Home
This printable version of the commumion service is for use on Sundays by parishioners who remain at home in social distancing. Download and print, or read online.

Our worship service will be available to live stream on the internet, and this resource allows at-home worshipers to join the responses during communion.
