Thanks to everyone who made our participation in the Dexter Bicentennial a great success!

Priest Search Process

Our Small Group Sessions are a vital part of determining our next Priest. Your participation is an extremely important part of this decision. A link with a short (five questions) questionnaire can be found HERE and needs your thoughtful consideration as we develop the profile of what we want in our next Priest. The Group Sessions will take place after Sunday Services on:

• July 14

• July 21

These sessions are no more than 60 minutes in length. Please contact Michael Champ at (804) 347-7185 to schedule your session date OR sign up HERE. For those that join via Zoom, and for those who can’t attend any of the above dates, please contact Michael so we may schedule a Group Zoom meeting.

It is VERY important that EVERYONE participate. 

Thank you, The Search Committee

Opportunities for Bible Study

The Book of Tobit (in the Apocrypha) will continue on Wednesdays at 11:00 am in the church library. Only 14 chapters long it offers information about the Jewish people in the times they had been driven east from their own lands into Media. It is the narration of the life and trials of Tobit, a Jew of great righteousness with many struggles. Come read and talk with us and we will give you a cookie. You may borrow a Bible with the Apocrypha if you don't have one. Contact Kathie,, with questions.

The next ONENESS: A PRAYER FOR PEACE is at 4:30 pm on Saturday, June 29, repeating the last Saturday of each month. Attendance went up:, 8 at the April meeting and 13 at the second one. There were some requests and enthusiasm for year round sessions. Make a note to give it a try if you haven't already. The world needs it.

Summer Lunches @

The Church at Crossroads

We have our volunteers ready and planning nutritious meals for our dates in Detroit. If you have the spirit to help but not the stamina to be on your feet for 5 hours we are looking for some monetary donations to help defray the cost of the food we prepare. We are also providing projects for the children and their parents as part of the Community Building portion of the afternoon, you could earmark a donation to help with these. 

Enjoy these photos from this week's lunch!

Thanks to our volunteers!
