Weekly Gatherings

Sunday

Worship with Grace and Holy Trinity Church Congregation on Sunday mornings.  Look for our ECM Usher/Greeter team they will be your companion through worship on Sundays during the semester.  

All services have a unique style so if you aren’t sure which one to attend maybe come at the best time for you to start. 

All baptized Christians are welcome to receive communion at any of the Eucharistic services (you do not have to be an Episcopalian to receive communion)- if you do not want to receive communion you can come forward and request a blessing from the priest.

Students are invited to live into their faith (regardless of their religious tradition) by helping the community of ECM at VCU to live into our baptism.

We promise at baptism to:

  • Continue in the apostles teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayers.
  • Persevere in resisting evil and when we fall into sin repenting and returning to the Lord.
  • Proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.
  • Seek and serve Christ in all persons loving our neighbors as ourselves.
  • Strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.

Wednesdays

We gather to  offer a place to share about where we  live and serve by feeding the hungry, quenching the thirst of the thirsty, visiting with the lonely, and / or standing with those imprisoned at our Wednesday Lunch. You do not need to be an Episcopalian, Christian or religious to join this conversation- all are welcome at the table.

During the Spring 2019 year we : 

Discuss how “God Says Sex is Good” in a 4 week session lead by Leslie Choplin D. Ed. Min.  

Enter into “The Way of Love” in a Lenten Study with The Pace Center (United Methodists) and Ukirk RVA (PCUSA) 

Plan to hold a Book Bag Drive for Red Door Ministry on April 24, 2019.  For more information about this email Mo. Kim 

 

Thursdays

Between 9 am and 12 noon Chaplain Kim Reinholz is found on campus for coloring and conversation in the Commons.It’s a chance to add a little color to a sometimes dreary world, but also an opportunity to talk about anything from concerns about personal and spiritual life to talking about pop culture or politics.  It’s a safe space to ask questions or just center ourselves at the table for a fun activity.

Students color and chat with Mo. Kim in the Commons

Fridays

Making Birthday Cards for Red Door guests

We invite students to join us for Red Door Ministries.  For more information about how to get involved visit the Red Door page here

We love having students volunteer and encourage you to sign up to help.  Come and learn some cooking skills and work with our team of dedicated volunteers to feed between 100 and 150 people most weeks.  This is an open community meal for anyone who wants to join us in the greater Richmond area.
