so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it. Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
We are blessed with a very compassionate and generous congregation here at Richland. When disaster strikes, we have always felt called to help. We partner with BGAV - Baptist General Association of Virginia.
After Hurricane Harvey left communities devastated in Texas, our church loaded up our church van and sent a team of eight volunteers to Liberty, TX to help with cleanup and restoration efforts.
In one week were able to help with the clean up and restoration of three private homes. We applied our skills and manpower to help with gutting and cleaning out of a damaged home, installing new drywall, and putting in a new sub floor in one of the homes.
It was a blessing seeing the love of Christ in practical action and coming alongside a hurting community.
