“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Ladies' Bible Study
The ladies of Cameron Avenue meet on the first and third Mondays of the month for Bible study. We meet at 10 am for announcements and prayer and begin our lesson at 10:30. At this time, we are using a workbook series by Cassandra Martin entitled, “Living Stones”.
Silver Shakers
Silver Shakers is a program for Christian men and women 60 years of age and older. This group of Shakers are involved in all aspects of the church, teaching, benevolence, leadership, giving and support of all working groups. Many of the Silver Shaker women are members and supporters of the “Red Hatters,” an active group of Christian women that regularly fellowship together and visit many local attractions as a group. The Shakers enjoy meetings together that usually provide a meal or snack. The group travelled together to Lancaster, Pennsylvania and attended a play about “Noah.” This was a three-day event and was a wonderful time of fellowship. The Silver Shakers plan more get-togethers in the future and more trips are in the works. If you are 60 and over, please come when we have our next announced fellowship.
Bonding Brothers in Christ
Bonding Brothers is a program designed for the edification of the men of the congregation to facilitate encouragement and fellowship.
Table for Two
“Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their own husbands so that no one will malign the word of God.”
~Titus 2:3-5

A Table for Two is a mentoring program to help build Christian relationships among the women at the congregation at Cameron Avenue church of Christ. The purpose is to give the women of Cameron Avenue the opportunity to participate in one-on-one mentoring friendships.

The Mentoring Ministry holds an orientation coffee in early spring. Those interested will fill out an application. The committee makes the pairings and then the real fun begins. The Table for TwoReveal Dinner is hosted to introduce the pairs to one another. After approximately four months, an end of summer dinner will be held to close the season.

The suggestion is made for each couple to meet once a month, talk weekly, and pray daily!

“One generation shall praise the works to anotherand shall declare thy mighty acts.”
~Psalm 145:4
Table for Two
Outreach
We have recently donated our 10,000th bear as a result of the hard work of the dedicated members of the Bear Ministry.

Members of this ministry spend time at home cutting out patterns, painting whimsical faces, and sewing bears. On the 4th Monday of the month the group gathers at 9:30 am to stuff the bears, stitch them up and send them on their way. Our bears represent the love of our congregation to those in the hospital, children in orphanages, people in mission fields, families who visit the area health departments and the children served by our local fire and emergency crews.

Our Shelter Outreach is a partnership between our congregation and the Salvation Army Men's Shelter in nearby Petersburg, Virginia. Teams of volunteers prepare and serve breakfast to the men in residence on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Saturday mornings of the month. This outreach was expanded recently to include a meal on the 3rd Tuesday evening of each month. Our goal in this area is to bring the aroma of Christ to the shelter and remind the men that they are cared for deeply, physically with a hot meal and spiritually by our heavenly Father.

Dunlop House is a residential assisted living facility in our community that houses an Alzheimer's unit. Volunteers from the congregation meet each Tuesday at 10:00 am to help the staff with the scheduled activity of the day. We assist in cooking, crafting and even spelling bees! It is our hope that we glorify God with our worship and assure the residents that they are remembered by our congregation and our God.

The Food Pantry at Cameron Avenue is used to meet the needs of families in our community. Requests for food are received on Wednesday mornings, between the hours of 9-noon. Each year in October we begin a special collection for Pack the Pulpit. Non- perishable items are collected each Sunday for five weeks and brought down front to the pulpit by the children during worship. It is a blessing to watch the pile grow! At the end of the collection period, baskets are put together containing all the ingredients for a full Thanksgiving meal and distributed to families on our benevolence list.
Missions
The congregation at Cameron Avenue is fully committed to sharing the wealth we have in Christ with others. We support a mission church on West Broad Street in Richmond Virginia with minister James Neismith and a Latino congregation in the Harrisonburg, Virginia area where the pulpit is filled by Lucas Vasconcellos.

Our goal to bring children to Christ is realized by our support of the Potter's Children's Home and Family Ministry in Bowling Green, Kentucky. We support them financially each month and have taken groups the last two summers to provide physical support. While in Bowling Green we were able to assist in moving residents, holding an end-of- VBS celebration, cleaning and organizing the food pantry and assembling playground equipment.

We allocate resources to Camp Idlewild in Spring Grove, Virginia. The facilities at the camp are used by local congregations for retreats and gatherings and youth camps are held every summer.
