COVINGTON, Va. (BP) -- There is a new church in Alleghany County, Va. -- and it happened because of a flood, a legacy and a pastor's vision. In June 2016, Fincastle Baptist Church, located in Fincastle, Va., just outside of Roanoke, reached out to the town of Covington after a flood that affected the area. Fincastle responded with volunteers, known as the Go Team, and developed a plan to provide furniture and appliances to flood victims. In partnership with SBC of Virginia Disaster Relief and with the help of SBCV's Vision Virginia funds, Fincastle was able to help nearly 500 families.
RICHMOND, Va. (BP)--A record number of messengers to the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia Nov. 14-15 annual meeting focused on the theme of “Renewing Your Passion,” which challenged them to renew their passion for their first love, for prayer, for truth and for the local church.
