You might not think this has anything to do with our mission of bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to Richmond, Virginia, but it does. The founders of RVA United are deeply concerned for 20-30 somethings in our city who don’t have much use for the church, and who probably wouldn’t visit one of our services on a Sunday morning. But a Tuesday night event, with a loud, live band, and few hundred of their peers in the room, well…that’s different. That doesn’t feel like church at all.
And yet it is a way to connect people to Christ and help them grow in their faith. If that’s not church I don’t know what is.
Even though I’m way past my twenties and thirties, I plan to be at First Baptist on Tuesday night, just to lend my support and encouragement to a group of young people who are trying to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to Richmond, Virginia. If you’re in your twenties or thirties and live in the area I hope you’ll come, and if not I hope you’ll pray: “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in Richmond as it is in heaven.”
