Getting Real Series | Faith & Justice

header

What does genuine justice look like in today’s culture?

set of threeJustice William “Bill” Mims is passionate about many things: his family, running marathons in his spare time, writing the Faith & Values column in the Richmond Times-Dispatch, and encouraging others to live out the true meaning of justice.

This January, Bill will share his compelling story about faith and justice.

“When I started reading the gospels as an adult, I realized the power of Jesus’ teaching and his admonitions…. What I have learned is that it is an extraordinary responsibility that relates to what I do with the robes on, but it relates to what I ought to do 24 hours a day.”

Following the series, Bill will host an interactive small group based on the book, Generous Justice by Tim Keller.

Women’s Lunchtime Small Group | Starting Feb. 18th!

Praying the Lord's Prayer 2.18

A consistent prayer life is a challenge for many in the workplace.  The “busyness” of work and life made even more intense by technology  has dampened our ability to quiet our hearts and minds. Often, we are left wondering, “Did God hear me? Does He even care?”

In his book, Praying the Lord’s Prayer, an excerpt from Growing in Christ, J. I. Packer presents a powerful truth: prayer is a natural activity between the Heavenly Father and his children. As Packer works through each phrase of Christ’s pattern of prayer, readers will begin to grasp the basic principles and guidelines of prayer. As readers apply the truths of this book to their prayer lives, they will experience intimate communication with God and will strengthen their own conversations with their Father in heaven.

Leader: Janice Beacham
When: Wednesdays, Starting Feb. 18th, 12-1 PM
Where: Estes Office, 3901 Broad St., Richmond, VA
Cost: Purchase your own book (Praying the Lord’s Prayer by J.I. Packer)

Questions: Contact Lisa Rattner at lrattner@needleseye.org or call 804.358.1283.

Women’s Thursday Night Study | Starting Feb. 5th!

Named By God

You were created to live with purpose and power, yet so many times, life causes us to forget that we were named by God. Join the Needle’s Eye women for an all-new Thursday Night Women’s Study starting February 5th!

About Named by God
In many ways, Kasey Van Norman has suffered more heartbreak than one woman can bear. Growing up, she endured her parents’ divorce, date rape, and years of addiction to sex, cutting, and eating disorders. As an adult, Kasey has endured a painful miscarriage; the heartbreak (and restoration) of infidelity; a cancer diagnosis; rejection by her friends, church, and community; and her mother’s death from cancer. But at the end of this twisting path of sorrow, Kasey walked out of the wilderness and into a place of God’s merciful and miraculous healing and redemption. In Named by God, Kasey shares her story of God’s infinite grace and compassion so that others might learn from her experience as they encounter a depth of Jesus like never before!

When: Thursdays, starting February 5, 5:45-7:30 PM
Where: Needle’s Eye Office | 104 Berrington Ct., Richmond. 23221
Cost: Purchase your own workbook (Named by God by Kacey Van Norman)
