July 24th Updates

Wisdom Study Resuming

Wisdom.  We desperately need it in 2020, yet it drips forth from Genesis to Revelation.  Join us as we resume our study of Wisdom literature starting Tuesday August 4th at 1:30pm.  We will recap where we have been in the first gathering and then move on to Song of Songs.  We will be having a hybrid session of in-person and Zoom to accommodate whatever situation you find yourself.  Please email Pastor Joseph (joseph@richmondcumc.com) if you are interested in joining.

Join us for our last Praise and Play! July 26th at 6:00pm

We will gather at 6:00pm outdoors (indoors if it’s raining) for a time of praise through song with guitar. Children will then have the opportunity for a short lesson and playing on our playground or indoors in the gym, while the rest of us join together for a short devotion and discussion. We hope you will join us!



Our church uses a church record keeping solution called Realm®. It serves the administrative needs of our staff, and also offers some exciting opportunities to support the way you are involved in our church. Not only does this improve work life for our ministry staff, it makes it easier for our church members to connect with each other, keep up with what’s going on, and grow as a connected community of believers.


With Realm, everyone in our church gets a unique profile. Your profile contains everything you want people in our church to know about you. Your profile also enables you to join a small group, RSVP to events, track your giving, update your contact information, change family details, set notification preferences, or replace that outdated family photo. By keeping your information current, you are helping our staff, group leaders, and our church community. Your Profile includes: Contact Information* (e.g. name, address, email, and phone), Photo, Family Members, and Personal Information (e.g. marital status, birthday**, etc.) If you would like access to your account, contact the church office and be on the look out for some Realm informative sessions coming soon!
