The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of Virginia (CBF-VA) mission is to cultivate healthy congregations and engage individuals and churches in life transforming ministries. We are passionate about nurturing and forming faith in Jesus Christ, connecting Christ-followers to one another and to CBF’s global mission and ministry, engaging students and adults in mission experiences, and renewing God’s world through partnership and collaboration.
Beloved Community - Jesus came into the world and inaugurated God’s Kingdom on Earth. One way we talk about this Kingdom is as God’s Beloved Community. We’ll explore how we and they fit into God’s Kingdom on Earth.

Saturday Mission Projects
One of the highlights of this weekend is the hands-on mission experience that you will be participating in on Saturday. We are currently working with the following organizations that each participant will do one or two of these: Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, Waynesboro Parks and Rec, Valley Mission, Love, INC, and Waynesboro Senior Center.
On Friday night, your students and chaperones will be assigned to their mission groups. On Saturday Morning, each mission group will gather during morning worship in the Fellowship Hall then they will load up tools and head out for a day of service.
If you have any additional thoughts or questions, please do not hesitate to ask Pastor Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-910-3654.
