The King’s Feast: Breaking Bread Together with the Risen Lord

The annual retreat is a highlight of our year together as a church family-a time of rest outside the city when we can spend time having fun with friends old and new and be refreshed by God’s Word. This year’s speaker will be Chip Edgar, and he will be focusing on the connection between the significance of our liturgy, particularly The Lord’s Supper, and our every day lives. 

We will be returning once again to Meadowkirk in beautiful Middleburg, VA. Use this form to register online and pay via eGive or bring a check and sign up after church Sunday.

Rez Job Opening: Full-time Parish Administrator

July 24th, 2013 by Erin Posted in News
Comments Off

As our church continues to grow, so does the scope of our administrative needs. Our current part-time parish administrator role is a 20-hour a week one. The current scope of that job takes every minute of 20 hours a week on a typical week to keep all the trains running. But we have a lot of atypical weeks, in which special events and activities require additional hours of administrative support. Further, our clergy carry a lot of the administrative load. The Parish Council hopes to free them up to focus even more on leading, counseling and discipling the church. As we look toward meeting our goals for this year, as well as the longer term church-planting objectives, we will need full-time administrative support. With all of these things in mind, we’ve created a new full-time Parish Administrator role, with new and different requirements from the current position.

A full job description can be found here; please help us spread to word to anyone who may be interested in this role! We’re taking applicants & questions now via
