Dear VBC Family – 
 
Sunday’s Coming and we’re very excited !
What kind of “sacrifices” have you made in your life ?  This week Pastor Ed will share from Romans 12 where Paul challenges Believers to be a “LIVING SACRIFICE.”  There’s a problem with “Living” sacrifices – they tend to CRAWL off the altar !  So – NO CRAWLING ALLOWED  🙂  Come and hear more about Paul’s instruction to the church this Sunday !
After-Church Social this week !!
As you’ve heard by now – this will be the last Sunday that the DiMeo’s will be with us as they’re headed south to be near family.  So we’re planning a short after-church social to say “goodbye.”  (Shhhh it’s a SECRET)  We could still use a few more goodies for the social – and we will also have a card box for cards/notes of thanks/encouragement.  Email us back if you will be bringing a goodie to share 🙂
UPCOMING EVENTS:

This is a WONDERFUL Blessing we have been able to take advantage of, and we sure hope you will join us for this GREAT evening of Praise/Worship on Friday September 1st at 7pm.  Tickets for the concert are still available (but you better get them soon) !!I  Tickets are FREE but REQUIRED, and there will be a love offering taken at the concert to Bless the ongoing ministry of the Ball Brothers.  To get your ticket(s) just email the church office at vineandbranchchurch@gmail.com (yes-this is the correct address this time :).  Please put TICKETS in the subject.  Send the name(s) of each person you are requesting a ticket for and an individual ticket will be emailed back to you for each person.  Even better – Tickets will be available this Sunday following the Service – just see Ralph.  I have also attached a poster for you to use to invite your friends !!!
