Sunday’s Comin’ (11/19/17)

Dear VBC Family –

This Sunday we welcome Ken and Letty Myers, our missionaries from Kenya, Africa !!  Come and find out the Good work being done throughout Kenya and beyond, and all the ways God has used VBC to partner in Africa.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:  Due this week …  

It’s not too late to send the Gospel around the world through a shoe-box gift – but this is the LAST SUNDAY to drop them off at VBC.  Be sure to bring in your OCC Shoe-box gifts this Sunday.

Please take the time to prayerfully fill out your VBC Leadership Nomination Packets.  Nominate OTHERS you feel are gifted and called by God for Leadership, and more importantly nominate YOURSELF where you feel God has called you to lead/serve.  Nomination packets are due this Sunday so the Nominating Committee can begin their work.

SUNDAY SCHOOL for ALL AGES will continue at 9:00am.    Come and join in as we explore the GREAT TRUTHS of God’s Word !!

See you all on Sunday !!

IMPORTANT VBC HAPPENINGS !!!

We have 27 teens and 6 adult chaperones headed to the REVERB ALL-NIGHT Youth Rally on Friday Nov. 17th !!!  Please pray for God to do a GREAT WORK in their lives, as well as for traveling protection !!

Hope to see you all on SATURDAY NIGHT at 6pm for our VBC Family Harvest Dinner !!

November GRATEFUL GIVING Calendar – Hope your family has begun to pray for and give toward the WOMEN’S MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL “Grateful Giving” Special Projects/Missionaries Calendar.  Please hold your “giving” till the end of November, then return in one tallied envelope or with one check made out to VBC (with WMI in the memo section).

Save SATURDAY DECEMBER 16th (4 – 6pm) for A NIGHT in BETHLEHEM – a Bible-themed event for the ENTIRE FAMILY !!  During this 2-hour Christmas program, families wander through the bustling Bethlehem marketplace and discover what life was like when Jesus was born.  Unlike your typical “living Nativity,” everyone will create unique keepsakes as they interact with local shopkeepers who share the Christmas story. And…they’ll love talking to Mary and Joseph in The Stable—and hearing about the miracle of Jesus’ birth.  You won’t want to MISS this AMAZING OUTREACH EVENT !!!  Our TEAM has been HARD AT WORK planning and gathering materials, and we are believing God for 150 kids and their families to attend.  See Shari Dowe or Pastor Robin for more info. or to get involved in this great outreach event.

See you all on Sunday  🙂

Love you MUCH !
