VCA Monday Night Video Group: Starting Back February 6, 2017

Happy New Year To All!

Starting February 6, 2017

When we closed out our Monday night video series at the end of November 2016, I thought we would restart the group in January. Well, the Virginia General Assembly started, we got a new President and it has taken a while to get settled down.

Last year we had 18 Monday video nights covering three topics. I believe those who attended the series were pleased. Where else can you see and discuss these topics? People are not likely to purchase and watch educational videos on their own and the churches are not likely talking about issues we would present. Also, we have rearranged the room to hold 72 “church” size chairs or 50 seated at tables. Perhaps one of the best parts of last year’s series was the discussion period after the video. Most night’s people stayed an hour after the video.

Reason For Hope 2016 Conference November 11 & 12, 2016

RFH 2016 Site Banner

Restoring Biblical principles to a confused and chaotic world
November 11 & 12, 2016
Virginia Beach, Virginia

Do not be afraid of them (your enemies). Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses. (Nehemiah 4:14 NKJV)

Today, the very core of our national character is barely recognizable in light of our nation’s founding principles and virtues. The result: confusion and, often, capitulation. Often, as American Christians we are fearful that we are losing the “culture war” and there is no hope for the restoration of our nation. But, the Apostle Peter encourages us to “have no fear of them, nor be troubled,” and to have a ready defense to anyone who asks you for the “reason for the hope that is in you.”

The Truth Project

Virginia Christian Alliance

Don@vachristian.org or (804) 261-1570

The Barna Research Group recently surveyed professing Christians and found that less than 10% had a thoughtful and consistent understanding of their biblical faith.

Because of this, today's believers think and live very similarly to non-believers. A personal sense of significance is rarely experienced, we spend our money and time on things that fail to satisfy and we begin to wonder what life's ultimate purpose really is.

Saturday June 11, 2016 Save Lives with Sidewalk Counseling Training

sidewalk-advocates-for life

Sidewalk Advocate Training Hosted by: Virginia Christian Alliance

Join our team here in Richmond!

Are you looking for a sidewalk counseling program that will give you the training, tools, technology and ongoing support you need? Sidewalk Advocates for Life is a national, peaceful, prayerful sidewalk advocacy program training people to most effectively offer loving, life-affirming alternatives to women and men as they enter the abortion facility. We take a law-abiding approach to out reach as we seek to remove the sense of crisis from those who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. We seek to be the hands and feet of Christ as we offer real choices – with real support – to those who, ironically, may feel they have no choice.

While we provide crisis intervention on the sidewalk to women headed into the abortion Center, we recognize we can only go so far. Our interaction must go beyond pamphlets and persuasion to an offer of help from local pregnancy resource centers and others in the community who are both willing and able to support expectant mothers through their pregnancy and beyond.

December 5th and 6th: Taking Our Country Back with Free Market Warrior Loren Spivak

41xC3vPZBCL. SX298 BO1204203200

“We're not here to gripe, or whine, or throw tantrums as the forces of statism and socialism methodically destroy the last vestiges of freedom in America.  We’re here to learn and work and teach and retake control of our destiny. We know we're right. And we want our country back.” – Loren Spivack

Free Market Warrior Loren Spivak is dedicated to teaching patriots how to do just that.

NOW IS YOUR CHANCE TO DISCOVER WHAT MOST CITIZENS AND POLITICIANS DON’T KNOW ABOUT FREE MARKET ECONOMICS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.

For example, can you explain why some tax cuts do absolutely nothing to stimulate the economy, while others provide a great stimulus? Were you taught that Roosevelt’s New Deal saved the country by intervening in the economy and “stimulating” demand? Would you be surprised to learn that the economic theories espoused by the current administration and congressional leaders were conclusively disproved more than 100 years ago?

Part I, Saturday, December 5th from 11:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
AND Part II (Part I Required), Sunday, December 6 from 6:00 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.
Virginia Christian Alliance
8659 Staples Mill Road
Henrico, VA 23228
