A Jazz Christmas with David Esleck
 December 6 – 8, 2024

Join us again this Advent season for a spectacular musical event here at Second Baptist Church! Dr. David Esleck, along with a host of talented local musicians, will perform sacred and secular seasonal favorites in a variety of styles, including traditional big band, Dixieland, rock, and R&B.

Rise Richmond serves as a pathway to new horizons as students ascend new heights on their journeys of discovery, education, and growth. Since 2003, they have partnered with students and families in Richmond’s East End to address barriers to educational opportunities. Formerly Church Hill Activities & Tutoring (CHAT), we began with a mission to provide learning environments that cultivate students’ God-given potential through personal, academic, vocational, and spiritual growth. Today, they are more committed to that goal than ever. At Rise Richmond, they offer supportive spaces where students—particularly Black students from the East End—can rise to new opportunities, pursue goals that once seemed out of reach, and exceed their expectations. Rise Richmond is a community of students, families, volunteers, donors, staff, and neighbors championing students’ voice and ability and bringing the future within reach.
