In late July, Robert Griffin III’s parents were scheduled to be the special guests at Garment of Praise Ministries in Capitol Heights. They brought along a special guest of their own. And RGIII wound up addressing the church just a few miles away from FedEx Field. See photos below.
Now Griffin and the Redskins are in Richmond, but he still has some church surprises up his sleeve. Sunday, it was St. Paul’s Baptist Church in Richmond, where Griffin was again on the microphone, in front of a thrilled crowd. Just check out some of the tweets.

And so on and so forth. Yes, there were photos; the terrific one above is via @emileerbee. And yes, Griffin himself tweeted about the experience.
Thank you to The Saint Paul’s Baptist Church & Dr. Lance & Lady Rose Watson for a gracious welcome & a heartfelt message
