  • On Friday March 1, you all will be divided into small groups for separate visits to local, intercultural churches. Details regarding these site visits will be emailed out SOON.

  • Because we’ll be in separate groups around town, there will NOT be an RCLI-coordinated after-session gathering.

However, we will be LEAVING the church by 8:40am to visit the Library of Virginia.
