Blue Ridge is a young church—we started meeting in the back of a local cafe in 2001, and broke ground on an actual home of our own on Spring Hill Road in 2003. Our pews (which are actually comfortable chairs!) are occupied by people who could have easily slipped into the back of large, established churches but have chosen to be here, where every pair of hands matters. When the sanctuary needs painting or the grass needs mowing, Blue Ridge folks pitch in. When 400 hungry neighbors need a hot meal on a winter night, the youth group cooks the spaghetti. We understand that church is not about what you can get but what you can give.

What will you find at Blue Ridge? A fresh pot of coffee and homemade treats on Sunday morning. The gentle donkey that shows up on Palm Sunday. At Advent, children dressed as angels and sheep under paper stars. Laughter, for sure; it wells up everywhere around here, even in the middle of the sermon. You’ll find chances to serve: feed hungry neighbors in our own county, pick up a hammer and help build a school in Haiti or fix a roof here in Virginia. You’ll find the Gospel; the word that can open a new window in the heart and let hope in. You’ll find opportunities to bring that hope to someone else.

You’re invited to share in the journey as we seek to love God with all our hearts, souls, and minds, and to love our neighbors and our world as we love ourselves.
