Fluvanna Christian Service Society
Fluvanna Christian Service Society is an ecumenical group of the Fluvanna County churches established to focus on the needs of this county’s residents and to find ways in which those needs can best be met. Programs include maintaining a community Food Bank and providing fuel assistance as well as other short-term essential services. Two community worship services – a Baccalaureate service for the Fluvanna County High School graduating class in May and a Thanksgiving service in November are held each year. The Happy Face Christmas event provides a day of gift giving, holiday food baskets and a Santa party for the children and senior adults who qualify for assistance. Churches offer financial support through their respective budgets as well as special offerings and are represented at the monthly board meetings. Volunteer opportunities abound in all of these activities. FCSS meets the 2nd Thursday of the month at 10:00 am (except July, August and December) at the Palmyra United Methodist Church, 434-842-3716.
As you drive along Bybees Church Road during Christmas week, you will encounter a tableau that takes you back two thousand years. In the cold, quiet night you will see Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus in the humble stable, surrounded by animals. Shepherds, angels and wise men silently celebrate the birth of our Lord. Started in 1996, Bybee’s Road Baptist Church has created an uplifting experience for travelers along Route 613 in Fluvanna County.
Our goal is to give our youth meaningful activities and opportunities for Christian fellowship. They participate in the Fluvanna County Youth meetings each month, sponsor fund raisers for trips, attend retreats and conferences that help them grow in their Christian experience.
