Virginia Baptists grieve with those people who are suffering from the effects of Hurricane Sandy. River Road Church’s Endowment Board has responded with a $5,000.00 contribution to the Virginia Baptist Mission Board Disaster Relief Fund to aid victims of the hurricane. In addition, the Endowment Board has pledged up to $5,000.00 more in matching gifts as members of River Road make gifts to the fund. Gifts will be distributed through the Virginia Baptist Mission Board, and all gifts will be used directly in the field.

Through the generosity of our congregation, we have met our goal. Thank you for your support through your gifts to make this a success. Any additional gifts that come in will still be donated to the VBMB Disaster Relief Fund, however they will not be matched by the Endowment Board.
