 Couple’s Encounter at New Life Church in Farmville February 16 & 17

Good marriages don’t just happen. Great marriages happen by intentionality. They happen when we prioritize and invest in our marriage.  Make a decision to invest in your marriage.  We give up weekends for our kids, business, and hobbies.  Why not invest in the one earthly relationship that impacts ALL aspects of your life.  Don’t settle for a good marriage when you can make it great!  Your spouse and family deserve the very best

New Life Church in Farmville is hosting a Couple’s Encounter Friday February 16 from 7-9pm and Saturday February 17 from 9-4pm. This event is open to the community to help enhance our marriage and families. The cost is $35 per couple (engaged or married).

Childcare will be provided.  Sign up at www.newlifefarmville.com or stop by the church office Monday-Thursday from 9:00-4:00 pm.

Family Foundation of VA Family Advocacy Day Monday, February 19

The Family Foundation of Virginia presents Family Advocacy Day Monday, February 19 in Richmond.  Registration opens at 8:30am in the Sun Trust Building, 919 East Main Street Richmond (4th Floor Conference Room) and there is no cost to attend. The day will begin with a briefing on current bills that will impact your families. You will then meet with your delegate and senator to advocate for policies that will protect families from the plethora of liberal bills being proposed. 

We must say no to bills that would undo the pro-life laws we fought so long to pass, use your tax dollars to pay for abortion, gender-changing surgery, and birth control, elevate sexual desires to a protected legal status, and erase all references to men and women in the Code of Virginia.

Register here and tell your family and friends to join us on this important day.
