Dear VBC Family – 
Last week we experienced an amazing move of God, and we look forward to even more this week as we gather to “Worship Him in Spirit and Truth !”
This Sunday Ralph Bressler will be bringing the Message as Pastors Robin and Ed are headed to Maine for the week.  Ralph will be sharing a Message titled “Facing Your Giants” using the 23rd Psalm to encourage the Saints.  “All of us have ‘giants” that are obstacles to our living a good Christian life.  We can choose to give in to them or to overcome them. If they are truly ‘giants’, we will need some help to defeat them.”
 
In the Pastors absence our Church Delegate (Frank DeMayo) resumes responsibility for the church.  You can contact Frank at fdemayo@cinium.com or call his cell 796-6081.  We expect to still be available via email and our phones, but it may be spotty.   If there is an emergency please contact ALL of us !!! 
Sure hope you’ll come and be ENCOURAGED as we WORSHIP the Lord together !
