Dear VBC Family – 
 
Sunday’s Coming !!
We are continuing to focus on our PERSONAL PREPARATION for Easter week.  This week Pastor Robin will share some very convicting  words of Jesus recorded in Matthew 25:1-13.   
 
It looks like we have a GREAT weather day for Sunday – hope you’ll join us to Worship and Give Thanks to our Mighty God and King !!
SUNDAY SCHOOL for ALL AGES continues at 9:00am.  
ADULTS:  We will continue the long-awaited EPIC of EDEN Study of RUTH this week !!!  You won’t want to miss this !!
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday !!
 
Wait till you see the amazing makeover our restrooms received this week !!  We’re not done – but we’ve come a long way !!  
Thank you for your continued patience as we finalize this work  🙂 
THANK YOU to our destruction crew, painters and spacklers, plumbers, picture hangers, decorators, and MANY helpers !!    
We appreciate ALL your efforts toward making VBC a place for God’s Glory to shine bright !
Prayer Needed:
Please pray for Jane Senor.  She has several issues that are overwhelming her, including the care for her mom, and she needs her church family to support her in prayer.
 
Please pray for Ruth Misner.  She called and asked for prayer for continued health issues, as well as some new health concerns that she is facing. Please pray that God’s presence would be with Ruth in a mighty way.
