Opportunities to live your faith in action
Current study claims that we live our life in increments of 30 years. Within these 30 year increments, most in this age-group have common interests, wants, wishes, and concerns. Our 30-30-30 fellowship links persons of these age groups together in fellowship activities; in and outside of the church setting. Our goal is to take our faith wherever we go and demonstrate Christ's compassion and love by our actions at all times; not just closed within the Church walls. Here are our groups:
1st-30, consists of life from infant (0) to 30 years of age
2nd-30, ages 30 to 60 years of age
3rd-30, ages 60 and over
Yes, there is overlap in each group. We realize that some will not be ready to move on and can find joy with either group. PLEASE note: any age can join any group, this is a guide to help one find their way into the fellowship and faith community of Chalice.
Outreach & Mission hands-on ministry
We have clothes drive for Seton Youth; financial support to Circle A for Horses, and buy fresh fruit for Virginia Supportive Housing folks at Crescent Square. In addition, we continue to collect plastic as send to the Trex Company to recycle. A BIG “thank you” to Carmen Ballard who allows us an outlet to send out plastic from her place of employment; Food Lion. This ministry has collected to date, over 1,000 lbs of plastic, with the help of Garnet Poole and Josh Blaskowski offering plastic from their places of work. We receive two wins with this ministry. 1) The plastic is not put in landfills and 2) we are able to earn 1 free park bench for every 500 lbs.
For the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday seasons, we supplied each resident of Crescent Square Apartments (Virginia Supportive Housing) an entire Thanksgiving dinner for one person, with directions and a prayer. We also supplied each resident with a hat, scarf, and gloves, along with over 60 “angel” gifts that residents requested from Santa. This congregation is so passionate and giving. We also continue to collect money, clothing, and food for local ministry partners.
