Tables for Eight 

Our tables for eight dinner party ministry is building its second round of groups after an awesome first round over the last few months! Groups of eight congregants get together for dinner, fellowship and conversation either over potluck dinners at your house or at local restaurants. This can be a great way to build connection throughout the congregation and in particular get plugged in if you’re new to the area or the church. If you’re interested, please either login into your Realm account search for the group and request to join, email Jennifer Fisher or connect with the church office and they’ll point you in the right direction. That’s three ways to get connected!

This Sunday ...

Lenten Series: Arrival of the Messiah

This series carries on the Messianic theme of the Advent Worship series from this past Christmas.  We will explore together the Messianic titles used for Jesus in the New Testament, and seek to better understand how they all reveal the nature of our Christ and empower us to connect to him in a new way, just in time for Easter!  Come explore, grow, and worship with us this Lent!

Nursery Wish List

We’re looking to refresh and renew our nursery space. If you’re interested in helping assist that process, we’ve got an awesome Amazon Wish List to help make the nursery a more infant-friendly and developmentally appropriate place! Thank you in advance for considering to help refresh the nursery! Any questions? Email Victoria.

Kairos Prayer Ministry

March 16-19, Crozet UMC’s Doug Gaskell will be ministering as part of a Kairos team at Augusta Correctional Center. Kairos ministers to the incarcerated throughout Virginia, but it can only succeed with prayer. Will you partner with these men? Will you take 30 minutes to pray? Don’t know how to pray?

Get a detailed prayer guide here on our website.

Why would you care? The Gospel of Matthew tells us to visit the prisoners. The book of Hebrews tells us to remember the prisoners. 

It’s tempting to “let someone else do it,” but prayer is the engine that makes Kairos possible. Make a difference. Change a life. Sign up to pray for 30 minutes.

Middle School Youth Group and CFG Return this Sunday

Middle School Youth Group and Children’s Fellowship Group will meet tonight! CFG meets at 4:00 pm while Middle School Youth will start at 5:30 pm. Questions? Email Bart.

Mark Your Calendar for April 1

We’re holding a church grounds spring workday on Saturday April 1. We’d love to have you out to help get the church grounds ready for Holy Week. We’ll have more details coming up!

Justice Ministry Update

On March 21, members of our Justice Ministry will gather with 25 area faith communities at IMPACT’s Nehemiah Action which will take place at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Performing Arts Center. Our Justice Ministry invites all members of the Crozet UMC congregation to join us at this event where IMPACT leadership will host area elected officials and decision-makers to further our joint goals of realizing justice in our community. This year’s initiatives for affordable housing, improved public transportation, and after-school care for preschool students are vitally important to so many of our fellow citizens. Our Justice Ministry members will be contacting all other members of the Crozet UMC congregation to describe how we can come together to seek justice in our community. For further information, please contact Lila Law.
