Dear VBC Family –

This Sunday Pastor Robin will share the Message This Is How We Know from the Book of I John chapter 3.  Come and find out how you can KNOW God’s love for you.  Also – this Sunday we will honor our Veterans as well as join churches from around the world as we participate in (IDOP) International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.

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

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.  They can be returned this week and next.  If you have yet to get a packet they will be available again this week.

See you all on Sunday !!

FAMILIES – FAMILIES – FAMILIES !!!   Save the Date for the VBC Family Harvest Dinner !!  Saturday November 18th at 6:00pm.

Sign-up sheets are in the back of the Sanctuary.

Save the DATE 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 !!!  See Shari Dowe or Pastor Robin for more info. or to get involved in the great outreach event.

See you all on Sunday  🙂

Love you MUCH !

Ed and Robin
