Moments of Hope Homeless Feeding
Every 1st Saturday of the month we feed the homeless at two locations in Richmond. Volunteers are needed to provide food, set up and serve food, and visit and encourage those receiving the meal. To find out how you can volunteer contact Bill Wines (804) 517-2177.
There are opportunities to serve through general labor, storm clean up, fire wood cutting, and hauling, as well as safety and security positions during worship services. For more information contact Greg Hockman at 740-215-7257 or via email
We have an active and vibrant student ministry here at Gethsemane, and that is thanks to a large and dedicated group of volunteers that serve as small group leaders for middle and high school students, worship leaders, meal teams, and trip chaperones. If you are interested in volunteering in The Student Ministry contact Conner Dunn.
Here at Gethsemane, we believe in investing in work that teaches the love of Christ to Children. Our Children's Ministry creates opportunities for members of our congregation to participate in the development of a child's faith journey. There are numerous service opportunities during the Sunday Morning Garden Kids worship time as well as opportunities to help with events through out the year.
