Christ Presbyterian Parish
PC(USA) is comprised of three neighboring churches: Arvon, located in
Arvonia, Virginia, Trinity, located in New Canton and the Presbyterian
Church at Fork Union. We worship at each church on a rotating schedule;
services are held at Arvon Church on the first and third Sundays of
each month, Fork Union Church on the second and fourth Sundays, and for
those months with a fifth Sunday, we worship at Trinity~New Canton. All
Sunday services are 11:00 am.
Although we meet in three different locations, we see ourselves as
one congregation, governed by one Tri-Session that meets monthly.
We offer you many opportunities for worship, fellowship and service.

there are no strangers, just friends we haven't met yet!"
We Worship Together...
On the first through fourth Sunday
mornings each month, when we worship in
Arvon or Fork Union, we have Sunday School for both children and
adults, beginning at 10:00 am. There is no Sunday School on the fifth
Sundays at Trinity~New Canton. We also offer a special worship
experience called "Jesus Time" for our younger members each Sunday
during the Worship Service.
We share the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper quarterly or otherwise as
determined by the Session. We offer Communion on World Communion
Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve, as well.
For those to whom God speaks through the music of the church, we have a
choir that is open to all who enjoy singing God's praise and assisting
in leading the worship service. Special choir programs are held during
the year to reflect the church calendar.
Study and fellowship are in vain if they do not shape our behavior. We
believe that God has called us to be of service to others.
We support several missions and missionaries within the United States
and throughout the world.
We support many local charities and missions, both through the efforts
of individual members and the church as a whole. We work with
charitable organizations that provide services to those living in
Fluvanna, Buckingham and nearby areas of Cumberland Counties.
When ever possible, we attempt to respond to the specific needs of
those in our church family during difficult times. This assistance can
take many forms, but is always done with respect, care, love and prayer.
The small, family oriented nature of our congregation allows each
individual a unique opportunity to utilize their time and talents in
ways to serve our Lord, the congregation and the church at large.
invite you to join with us in fellowship as we worship, study and serve
our Lord Jesus Christ together!
God's people said, "Amen! "
