RBCI /at the Germanna Twin Office Park

The Center for faith-based and community learning located in Charlottesville, Virginia is happy to announce that our first class hosted by Higher Praise Ministries at the Germanna Twin Office Park was a great success.

Higher Praise Christian Church is located in the Germanna Twin Office Park on the first floor. They have a great worship center and additional space for classes and dinning. Rev Catherine Parker is the Pastor of Higher Praise Ministries, a small mission that began only a few years ago, but is now growing and moving on to bigger and better things by the grace of God.

Our ServSafe@ Food Safety Class is scheduled for the Fredericksburg area only once a month. The Germanna Twin Office Building is located only fifteen miles west of Fredericksburg on Route 3. This very fine facility and the great hospitality of the HPCC allows us to "serve our very best, one client at a time". Each student is made to feel at home with easy access to restrooms, break areas, and nearby restaurants.

We look forward to God's increase as more and more people learn, and understand how important it is to "serve food safely". The laws that govern restaurants and food service facilities do not always apply to non-profits in the same way. We now have a grant from the Bamma Works Fund at the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation which makes it more affordable ("two for one deal") and help us get the word out to those who need to know.
