It is called Charles City County, Virginia. But there is no city there, not even a town or village in the rural county north of the James River.

Free women of color, in the North as well as the South, played crucial roles in organizing emigration.

As the concerns over the COVID-19 coronavirus have increased, many churches have decided to temporarily suspend meetings and move to an online platform. In response to this developing situation the LifeWay Kids team has created a free, temporary, at-home resource that will allow churches to equip families to watch weekly kids Bible stories at home: the LifeWay Kids at Home and LifeWay Preschool at Home Digital Pass experiences.
