Vacation Bible Camp 2015  

“Animal Crackers,” Greenwood's 2015 Vacation Bible Camp (VBC) was a great success. Our goal was to raise at least $120 to purchase a sheep for a needy family through the Heifer Project.

Over 20 kids and a host of adult and youth volunteers enjoyed the fun and raised over $160 towards buy a sheep for a family overseas. Our Vacation Bible Campers have challenged Greenwood, and our sister church Laurel Park UMC, to make up the difference so we can contribute at least $240 to buy two sheep!

If you would like to help the Greenwood VBC children buy sheep through the Heifer Project International to help a family, please mark your contribution “sheep,” place it in the offering plate, and we will add it to the VBC offering

Food Donation Connection

Greenwood continues to help feed the hungry in Glen Allen through our distribution of free food every Friday at 6 p.m.

Food is collected from participating restaurants by church members. The July pick up rotation schedule is posted in the narthex and available online here.

As the people of God, we are called to develop our faith through the understanding of God’s love and to be a church dedicated to prayer.  

We believe that Christ is calling us to serve by being present and welcoming to all, regardless of ethnic, cultural or economic background.

God calls us to give our time, talent and monetary resources to proclaim effectively the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
