The best way of life is the straight and narrow

Church and Community Focus

RICHMOND — Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.


Psalm 1:1-6

  • 3-2 AdventureMaze1.jpg An aMAZEing afternoon of exploration

    “I’m getting too old for this,” one father exclaimed as his little one tugged his hand toward the entrance of the maze for another go.
    Clad in knee pads and headlamps, a band of young explorers and a few brave adults, made their way through a network of dark tunnels. They passed through a black-light room and finally a triangular overhead bridge before they descended into a belly crawl to come out near where they began.

  • Anthony-Phelps-c.jpg Rejoice in God’s loving kindness this year

    Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
    My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.
    Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
    — Psalms 63:3-7
