Kids will unearth more than dirt as they dig up exciting evidence that proves biblical events were not just stories. As junior archaeologists, kids will explore real-life archaeological finds that have helped to uncover the truth about Jesus! Along the way, they’ll discover the truth of Jeremiah 29:13, that God reveals Himself to us when we seek and search for Him with all our hearts.
    We’ll have Bible stories, music, crafts, missions & snack. More information – call us at (804) 642-2555. We hope you will plan to join us!

    Dave Crummet, Barry Milligan, and Ted Fisher worked to clean-up the surface debris from the tree removal. They raked the equivalent of 2/3 of a football field and hauled it away!

    March 21, 2021: Church rear property

    Drainage issues have developed in the front corner of the parking lot.

    In late December 2020, the White Pines were removed.

    Dominion Energy removed the overhead power lines and installed two transformer units on the property on the church office side in late December 2020.

    Gloucester Point Baptist Church rear property has been surrounded by large white pines since the early 1980s as shown in the pictures below.
