Saint Stephen’s Koinonia Joins Virginia’s Fight Against Heart Disease

This morning, Lady Diane Harris visited Mr. Augustine Doe, Health Equity Specialist at the Virginia Department of Health, to express St. Stephen’s Koinonia Church’s commitment to join Virginia’s new 100 Congregations for Million Hearts Initiative, a faith-based program designed to help guide congregations toward a heart-healthy lifestyle. WRIC 8News was there to interview First Lady Harris and other Richmond faith leaders; click below for the story:

Hands Up, Don’t Shop!

In support of all people who hope for positive changes to come from the travesty of justice recently witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri, but not only in Ferguson, Saint Stephen’s Koinonia Church supports the Black Friday Boycott. Instead of throwing our money away and acting like we just don’t care, let’s show how much we grieve when precious lives are thrown out for no good reason. Let God get the glory this holiday season, rather than big business.
