We've been here for 384 years, so we know what it means to be a living, faithful Christian community. Established in 1637 as the first church in what is now VA Beach, Old Donation has survived and thrived through wars, fires, floods and just about any calamity you can imagine.
Yet here we are in the 21st Century, more vibrant and full of life than ever. God's Spirit continues to be our guide and our strength. God's hope keeps us looking forward. God's wisdom enables us to hold on to what is ancient, while always being relevant in today's world.
The outbreak of COVID-19 forced us to make significant changes to our programs for health and safety. We have temporarily eliminated most of our in-person meetings, Sunday School classes, youth and children's programs and young adult meetings.
Through this we have expanded our online offerings, hold Bible studies with ZOOM, and continue outreach ministries with all the best safety and health measures to assure minimal risk. This virus will not stop us from BEING the CHURCH in this world, though our methods and patterns are adapted. Stay tuned!
