I have been coming to North Run Baptist Church since the Fall of 2009. I was looking for a church in the Lakeside area, close to home, where I could be active and involved. From day one I felt welcomed from everyone; there was never a time when I wasn't invited to an event whether it be an ongoing weekly or monthly activity or one of our exciting annual community events. North Run has given me the pleasure of serving as the leader on the deacon visitation team allowing me to build relationships with our guest that visit our growing church and I have the joy of teaching the college/ young adult class every Sunday morning to the students of VCU, JSRCC among others. I see North Run Baptist Church growing even more into a church that reaches out to serve our community and Christ in hopes that it will bring others closer to God's love.
