Winter Bible study (January - mid-March, 2016) - Beth Moore's study, The Patriarchs: Encountering the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Patriarchs is a 10 week journey through Genesis 12-50. Discover God's pursuit of a relationship with man, and marvel as His plan to bless all people unfolds. Full of twists and turns, ruin and redemption, revelation and mystery this Bible study keeps participants captivated by the God who stars in it! Explore concepts such as blessing, covenant, and promise, and the bearing each has on a New Testament believer's life today. Group members will also study the Hebrew names of God introduced on the early pages of Scripture. Many of the most profound and enduring concepts in the whole counsel of God's Word are initiated in this marvelous book of beginnings.

Special Events

Women of Faith FILM in Richmond cinemas February 18 & 20, March 3 & 8, 2016

Join your FLO friends for this special feature at Cinebistro, Virginia Center Commons or Westchester Commons. Witness the journey of Women of Faith through the years, on stage and off, their travels with World Vision, their impact on their audience, in short the way they've changed the world. Partly historical, and frequently hysterical, this unique cinematic experience will be packed with some of the most popular pieces from the beloved speaking team as well as music and performances from the CCM artists that appeared on the tour. Featuring never before seen interviews, outtakes, and behind the scenes footage, this "movie" will bring back memories for all those who have attended a Women of Faith weekend as well as create new memories for those experiencing it for the first time.
