Newcomer Reception/Celebration: We as a church body want to recognize Pastor Jim and Lorie for their 10+ years of service to the CBC family before they move on to their new ministry with Calvary Baptist Church in Michigan. Their time and service with us has left an indelible mark on our lives and the ministry. Please join us on July 17th for a special service at 5:00 PM followed by a reception in the VBTS Chapel. There will be a basket available for your personal thank you cards and notes during the reception.

Ministry Opportunities with Children: We are in need of more volunteers to help with various children's ministries including nursery, Sunday School, and children's church. If you are interested in serving in any of these ministries or simply want more information, please contact Pastor James Varner .

Volunteers Needed for Grace Grounds: Grace Grounds is looking for volunteers to make and serve coffee on Sunday mornings. For more information or to volunteer, contact Angie Ahmed .

Support Teen Mission Trip: Teens from Colonial’s Youth Ministry will serve in Colorado City, AZ with Brody and Liz Olson for almost two weeks this coming August, and they need your help collecting funds and resources for their trip. To hire this year’s “mission trippers” to do yard work, cleaning, or other odd jobs, contact Pastor Paul Campbell.

J1 Ministry: Each year 1400 international workers come to Virginia Beach for temporary employment at the beach. To reach these workers, Virginia Beach Community Chapel (VBCC) has organized three weekly events June 14 through mid-August. Contact Aaron Broughton for more information.

Free Conference: There are flyers at the Welcome Center with information about a free one-day conference with Rosaria Butterfield at Riverside Baptist Church in Newport News.

Children's Summer Study: All children ages 3 years old through 6th grade are welcome to join us on Wednesdays from 7-8 pm for music, games, and Bible study. 3-5 year olds will meet in the cubbies room in the Nehemiah building. Kindergarten – 6th grade will meet in the Ed Building (room 119). Please pick up your children promptly after the service.
