Greetings !

We greet you in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ !  Welcome to our Richmond Tamil Christian Fellowship, as well as to our website.

Richmond Tamil Christian Fellowship (RTCF) is a nondenominational fellowship started in 2013 with few families from Tamilnadu, India to worship our Lord Jesus Christ in our mother tongue, Tamil. In the last few years we have grown in numbers. In recent times, few families who do not speak Tamil have started attending our services regularly. Many of our youth and children are not knowledgeable in Tamil either. To make it easy on everyone, currently we sing worship songs in Tamil, Telugu & English and the message is given in English.

The families attending RTCF come from many denominations viz., Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, Lutheran, Roman Catholics, Charismatics, and Pentecostals. Every member families attend their parent churches on Sundays and that is why we meet on Saturdays. In fact, RTCF encourages everyone to be a member in any one of the local Christian churches. RTCF does not exist to replace a church in anyone’s life. RTCF exists by the grace of God, for the glory of God, which shall be the ultimate purpose in all its activities. RTCF glorifies our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, by loving Him and obeying His commands through worshipping Him. We are here to proclaim the gospel of Lord Jesus Christ through teaching, personal evangelism, and by any other means consistent with the teachings of the Holy Scriptures - The Bible.

As one-big-family, we stand together and support each other spiritually in times of need. We invite you & your family to our services and be a part of RTCF. When we stand together we cannot be broken as it is written in, Ecclesiastes 4:12 - Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
We cordially invite you to worship with us on the first and the third Saturdays of each month and come to the Cottage prayer meetings too in members’ houses on every fourth Saturday. We do serve a sumptuous potluck dinner after the cottage prayer meetings in members’ houses.
Let us make a commitment to “Love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our Soul, with all our strength,and with all our mind”. If you have any questions, or have any prayer requests, please feel free to contact us at myrtcf@gmail.com. Our prayers are: “Be blessed and Stay blessed”.
