Strengthen: General Assembly Special Session
The General Assembly is still working on a budget in its 2018 Special Session. VAIB participated in a press conference with other religious groups on May 9 to express opposition to funding in the budget for LARCs (long-acting reversible contraceptives). I am still hopeful that conservative voices will win the fight to remove this funding stream to abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.
Educate: ONE Voice for Liberties Conference
VAIB’s annual meeting and conference will soon be here-- September 27-28! I hope you’re planning to come. You can view the schedule and register online at http://vaib.org/education/one-voice-for-liberties-conference/ . Each pastor and “person-in-the-pew” will benefit from the messages and music. Plan today to come! For more information, contact the office at 804-299-3986 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will repeat what I said in my previous letter: VAIB is not a political organization. We do not endorse candidates nor political parties. I hope you will pray and vote for those you believe will stand for biblical values, and then stay in touch with those that are elected.
With that in mind, candidates from each party who will be running for Congress should be finalized in June. Some are incumbents. Most races have two or more candidates. If you have any questions regarding those in your district, contact the office at 804-299-3986 or email@example.com.
As always, I want to thank those churches and individuals who have given to support this ministry. I wish I could say that every independent Baptist church in Virginia helped this ministry, but currently less than half carry that burden. If your church does not support, will you consider helping today?
We are very blessed in America to have freedom in so many areas. Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country and freedom. I believe there have been instances where those in authority have sought to limit our religious freedom in the name of protecting others. Pray for our president and other elected officials to carefully use our military and government to properly protect our freedoms.
Your voice for Christian liberties!
