Fifth Sunday Service - May 31

Don't forget our combined fifth Sunday Worship Service with our sister church, Laurel Park UMC at 11 a.m. on Sunday, May 31. Laurel Park UMC is located at 2700 Hungary Rd, Richmond, VA 23228 (804) 266-6520. On Hungary Road between Staples Mill and Woodman Roads.

Church Work Day

 Everyone is invited to the next big Trustees’ project: Work Day — a day of cleaning, sorting, restoring, and moving on Saturday, June 6 at 9 a.m.

We have some yard work to do, we’re planning on clearing out obsolete and broken items, sorting through supplies, reorganizing closets, cleaning and making lists of needed repairs. Moving the pews out of the choir area – part of our chancel remodel project – is also on the agenda. We hope to choose paint colors for classrooms in preparation for a future painting day.  

Annual Conference 2015

     The Virginia Annual Conference June 19-21 in Roanoke provides us with many opportunities to contribute to those in need.


Conference Offering: The Virginia Conference has set the goal for this year's offering at $150,000. We will collect an offering in June to support this effort. Donated funds will be distributed evenly to:


The Methodist Mission in Cambodia as they purchase property for new churches and expand mission.


Support for medical training and supplies in Sierra Leone and Liberia.


Virginia programs working with children and families living well below the national and state poverty levels in the Danville and Eastern Shore Districts.


Kits for Conference: We continue to support the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) with emergency kits that we assemble and donate. Greenwood already has nearly 60 Health Kits with more kits and more donations coming. Anyone wishing to assemble kits or donate equivalent funds, can find kit contents and instructions posted in the narthex, or at UMCOR's web site. Please have your kits or donations at the church by June 14 so they can be assembled and transported to Conference.


Food Donations: The Conference will collect canned food contributions and partner with the Society of St. Andrew in their Potato Drop to provide food to local food banks.

There's lots more information about Annual Conference at the Virginia UMC website here.

Vacation Bible Camp 2015  

Greenwood will host the 2015 Vacation Bible Camp (VBC) the last week in June. VBC 2015 will start with a dinner for camp participants and their parents at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 28 and continue with daily sessions starting Monday, June  29, running through July 2, from 9 to 11:30 a.m.

As the people of God, we are called to develop our faith through the understanding of God’s love and to be a church dedicated to prayer.  

We believe that Christ is calling us to serve by being present and welcoming to all, regardless of ethnic, cultural or economic background.

God calls us to give our time, talent and monetary resources to proclaim effectively the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
