Dear VBC Family –
 
This Sunday we celebrate the third Sunday of Advent – a time of preparation for the coming of the King (now and future).  
This week we will light the candle of JOY.  Pastor Ed will challenge us to adopt an attitude of “JOY for the Journey” !  
Come and discover JOY anew this Sunday !!
 
Also, this Sunday we will have a special treat as several of our Young Teens will be doing a special musical selection to spur us all on to focus our hearts on Jesus this Christmas !
SUNDAY SCHOOL for ALL AGES will resume at 9:00am.    Come and join in as we explore the GREAT TRUTHS of God’s Word !!
Our Children’s Sunday School will be practicing for a very special Christmas musical presentation for the 10:30 Christmas Eve Worship Service.
You will not want to miss that !
IMPORTANT REMINDERS:
 
JOIN us for A NIGHT in BETHLEHEM on Sat. Dec. 16th from 4-6pm !!
The Big event is almost here and you will be AMAZED at the transformation of our Sanctuary into the Town of Bethlehem !!!  
We sure hope you have invited lots of people to experience Christmas like never before !!  It is our desire to bring the GOOD NEWS of JESUS front and center this Christmas season !  THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who gave SO MUCH of themselves to make this possible.  We are convinced that God will use this event to make an ETERNAL DIFFERENCE !!  Join us in prayer for the Holy Spirit to prepare hearts to receive the GREATEST GIFT of all this Christmas  🙂
We’re also really looking forward to our Christmas Eve Candle-lighting Service on Sun. 24th at 7pm.
This is a wonderful Service to bring your friends and family members to !
Hope to see you all on Saturday and Sunday –
Much love – 
Robin and Ed
