The Vision (1.23.14): Looking Forward to 2014

Scene:  Marching in for Vacation Bible School in 2013
Note:  On Sunday afternoon we conducted CRBC’s Annual Church Conference.  Among other things, we welcomed two new members, elected our first deacon to office, approved a student internship for Spring 2014, and approved our 2014 budget [see detailed report in this Vision].  We also reflected on CRBC’s ministry in the year past and looked forward to ministry in 2014.  Here are some of the ministry goals for 2014 that we shared on Sunday:

·        Continue to conduct weekly Lord’s Day worship services in Charlottesville and continue to develop a covenanted and confessional church community.

·        Continue to broadcast sermons and teaching worldwide on

·        Continue second Sunday services at Our Lady of Peace retirement center.

·        Continue Sunday evening “preaching point” in Lynchburg and work toward development of church plant.

·        Renew monthly men’s meeting (study of 2LBCF)

·        Continue mission giving to Andy and Beth Rice (Zambia) and Trinitarian Bible Society.

·        Consideration of joining the Association of Reformed Baptist Churches in America (ARBCA).

·        Run a new “Grace Points” radio campaign in the spring of 2014.

·        Conduct another “Puritan” Vacation Bible School tentatively scheduled for June 23-26, 2014.

·        Support thirteenth annual Keach Conference to be held September 26-27, 2014 in Warrenton, VA.

Of course, to all these things we must add DV for Deo Volente, “God willing.”

Grace and peace, Pastor Jeff Riddle
