VBC Family –
This Sunday begins the Season of Advent – a time of preparation for the coming of the King (now and future).  We will have the Patterson Family light the Advent Candle of HOPE.  Pastor Ed will speak on the HOPE that we have through Christ – REAL Hope – ready and available for ALL !!  Come and replenish your “Hope” supply this Sunday !!
SUNDAY SCHOOL for ALL AGES will continue at 9:00am.    Come and join in as we explore the GREAT TRUTHS of God’s Word !!   We are looking forward to two special music performances by our VBC kids/teens on the 17th and the 24th.  Be sure to mark those special dates !
Please bring in your WMI Giving Calendar gifts this Sunday.  We will send those out immediately so desperately needed funding will reach the special project areas still in need of support to finish the year.
Our Annual Society Meeting will be held on Sunday Dec. 9th at 9am.  ALL are welcome to attend.  We will not have Sunday School – however there will be a Children’s program for all kids.
Join us and INVITE a FRIEND to A Night in Bethlehem at VBC on Saturday Dec. 16th from 4-6pm.  THANK YOU to all who are working incredibly hard to make this a wonderful outreach opportunity.  YOU can help by bringing a new family or two … along with you ! 
We will have our Christmas Eve Candle-lighting Service on Sun. 24th at 7pm.  This is a wonderful Service to bring your friends and family members to.
Hot off the presses – we will be hosting the Robert’s Wesleyan College chorale on Monday, May 7th at 7pm.  The RWC chorale is a 38 member group of very gifted college students who will Bless us with a wonderful night of song.  Plan to attend !  Also – you will even have the opportunity to house a pair of students for the evening 🙂  More info. coming soon.
See you all on Sunday !!
Love you all – 
Ed and Robin
