Bible Study for girls and young women starts this Friday!
Starting Friday, September 25th - a weekly Bible study and fellowship time for girls and young women ages 11+. Meeting at Midlothian Baptist Church, 11840 Lucks Lane on Friday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30, and taught by Laney Mills, it will be a sweet time of connecting with other Christ-centered young women, studying the Word of God together, spending time before Him in prayer, and encouraging one another to press on to know Him more. I would really love to study the Bible; not a book about what someone said about the Bible, although those have their place; but to simply study straight out of the Word of God. There is such power in God's Word; it's Truth, and the Truth will set us free (John 8), and so I'm excited to come to the text of Scripture together and meditate on the riches within it!

Players With a Purpose - Several James River Eagles players, family members and coaches put together an outreach ministry called Players With a Purpose. The mission is to share the love and hope of Christ to unchurched children in at-risk neighborhoods through offering a basketball camp and connect them with a local church that will continue to love, minister and disciple them. Players With a Purpose have traveled to Springfield, Massachusetts and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania conducting basketball camps. In Massachusetts we partnered with Hope for Kids - an organization that provides help and hope to kids in need through physical relief, spiritual renewal, and authentic relationships. We are able to use our basketball ministry to tap into hard to reach neighborhoods and help local churches and organizations make connections with the children and families there.
We have also partnered locally with Kingsland Baptist Church in Chester, VA helping them make the same connection between unchurched children and a local church. We are actively looking to partner with other local churches in an ongoing effort to reach unchurched and at-risk children.
This new program has already allowed our teams to minister to over 150 kids who have participated in our camps, most of whom were homeless and/or living in poverty. We provide a nutritional meal and snack, and camp consists of basketball skills training and games, praise and worship, and Bible lessons teaching them about their need for a Savior. God is using these camps in an amazing way, ministering to both the campers and our basketball players alike. Our team continues to experience and witness things that only God can do. We know that it is not by our power, but by God's that these children receive hope and salvation through Christ.
