“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 ESV
Crestwood Church is not a place for spectators. We’re an active community of engaged children and adults from all walks of life in the Midlothian, Virginia, and greater Richmond area. Whether you are a 5-year-old loving life, a teen developing your sense of self, a 95-year-old grandmother, or a busy mom or dad, we want you to be part of our vibrant church community. Here are just a few ways you can learn, serve, and grow with us.
The Sunday School ministry of Crestwood Church is designed to connect you with a class that brings biblical principles alive to address the practicalities of everyday living. At our Richmond campus, our friendly adult class begins with coffee and snacks at 9:15 a.m. While some classes use a continuous curricula, others may change on a quarterly basis (starting the first Sunday of March, June, September, and December). In addition, a group of ESL adults meet during the Sunday School hour to talk through the scripture that day and to practice their English.
Sunday School classes usually take a hiatus during the summer, but we offer other discipleship opportunities uniquely suited to the summer months. You can find a current listing of classes for both of our campuses here: Sunday School Offerings
Wednesday Night at Crestwood
Wednesday Nights at Crestwood run from September to April each year at our Midlothian Campus.

They close promptly at 7:30 p.m. Nursery is provided. Meal costs are $5/adult & teen, $3/child and $1/nursery with a $20 family maximum.
MOPS: Mothers of Preschoolers
As any parent knows, raising a preschooler is a difficult and enthralling job—but it can be lonely business. That’s why Crestwood Midlothian is home to this supportive and thriving program for Moms to connect and build friendships with others in the same boat. Crestwood’s MOPS program brings together approximately 45 moms, 60 children, and a support staff of 20 child care providers. This vibrant ministry helps Moms developing encouraging, supportive friendships and provides care for their children in a nurturing, fun, and faith-filled environment. Learn More
To follow where Jesus leads, large group gatherings are not enough. Life Groups provide the opportunity for us to love and be loved in the life-giving way Jesus intended. Life Group ministry at Crestwood is about care; it’s about spiritual growth; it’s about building abiding friendships; it’s about laughter; it’s about service; it’s about life transformation. It’s about being disciples following Christ together and ushering something new into the world, something that looks a little bit like what God intended in the beginning.
The PrimeTimer Ministry provides fellowship within the Crestwood community for adults aged 55 and better. Guests are welcome at any PrimeTimer event (including those under 55!). Typically these events are lunches with monthly speaker programs held at our Richmond campus, or they are outings to area attractions. Activities are scheduled from September to May each year.
