Question:
How do I go about having my Baby dedicated?

Answer:
We offer to do baby dedications on the second Sunday of each month.  If you would like to have a baby dedicated, please call the church office (540-349-0178) no later than the Wednesday before the Sunday of the requested dedication.

Question:
I would like to receive water baptism.  How do I go about this?

Answer:
We offer baptisms the second Sunday of every month.  If you desire baptism, please call the church office no later than the Wednesday prior to the Sunday when you want to be baptized.  Pastor William Russell will telephone you with a list of articles to bring in preparation for baptism. A female deacon will be here to assist women who are being baptized.  A male deacon assists the men.  Baptisms are always preceded by a class, taught by one of our Pastors, that begins at 10:00 a.m.  Baptisms are done at 10:30 a.m.  Please call the church office (540) 349-0178.

Question:
When and from whom can I receive counseling?

Answer:
Our staff Pastors counsel church members upon request.  Since our Pastors have very busy schedules, their counseling times vary.  You may not be able to see the specific pastor you request in the specific time slot that you prefer.  Please understand that we will do our best to accommodate your specific request and to schedule your appointment as soon as we can. Appointments are handled through the church office (540-349-0178).

Question:
If I have information, a need or a testimony I would like to share in the bulletin, what format is available to me and what are the deadlines?

Answer:
We have bulletin boards for posting material or employment needs and job opportunities, event information, schedules, invitations and thank-you notes.  All material to be posted must have prior approval from the office. Special events, volunteer needs, and some last-minute news items are included in the bulletin.  To request the inclusion of information in the bulletin, please contact the church office (540-349-0178) no later than noon on the 15th of the month prior to the event.

Question:
If I would like to have a church or nonchurch function at the church, how do I reserve a room?  What do I need to do?

Answer:
All space allocation, be it for weddings, ministry meetings, or other functions are handled in the church office.  Finding suitable space for all functions can be difficult in a growing, active church.  No matter how long you have been using the building for a particular group's functions, you cannot assume that there will be space available if you change your meeting time unless you have received prior approval from the administrative office. 

They will inform you whether your request can be granted within our limitations.  Also, if you need an overhead projector, slide projector, tables, or other equipment for your function, you may contact the office for availability. You will be responsible for ensuring that all children brought with an adult are supervised by an adult or responsible teen while they are here. 

You should ask your attendees whether provision of child care will be necessary and make arrangements in advance.  We do have adult and teen members who are interested in providing child care.  For more information contact Mrs. Delores Tapscott at 540-349-0178.
