A message from Pastor, Ralph Morris...
To all who will come,
I want to take this opportunity to say Welcome! Many in our culture have given up on "church" because it has been reduced to nothing more than "doing church". Many have forgotten what God intended the church to be. This is what we here VCU are committed to: Effecting Lives with Hope.
That is what Jesus taught and instructed us to do. God did not call us to "do church". "Doing church" and "Being the church" are not the same. We are the "church". I've learned two things that people do not want wasted; their time and their money. Something else I've learned is this - if you provide something that people find meaning and purpose in, they will invest their lives wholeheartedly because everyone wants to know that their life matters. If you're looking for a place that's friendly and comfortable yet will challenge your life using God's word to experience life as Christ intended, then this is the place for you.
If you haven't been in church for a while and think you know what it's all about, then we might have a surprise for you. Come and see us!
Serving on Purpose,
Pastor Ralph Morris
