The Stand and Pray for Marriage Rally is right around the corner (click here for details). Watch our new promotional video, please share it, and plan to be in downtown Richmond this Tuesday, May 13, at 8:30 a.m. The appeal for the Virginia Marriage Amendment will be heard that day and we need you to be there to stand with us for God's design for marriage.
