Dear VBC Family – 
First of all – we hope our ladies are BLESSED beyond measure as they travel to the Conference Women’s Retreat this weekend.  We will miss you all !!
Speaking of “Blessing” – this week Pastor Ed will continue our series from the Letter to the Ephesians with a message titled Be BLESSED and BE A BLESSING.  Sure hope you’ll plan to be there to Worship our Lord together – for HE IS SO GOOD !!
PS:  Men – just because the ladies are away … get those kiddies up and get to church  🙂
SUNDAY SCHOOL for ALL AGES continues at 9:00am.  
ADULTS:  We’re going to have a coffee/tea/bagel fellowship during the SS hour – hope you will join us !
(We will continue the EPIC of EDEN Study of RUTH next week.)
THANK YOU !!  THANK YOU !!!  For your VERY GENEROUS giving toward ICCM (International ChildCare Ministries of the FM Church) last week !
We sent Pastor Megan home with $898.00 for the Children’s food fund (which is equivalent to about 4,490 meals for needy children !!!)  Praise God !
Also – there were nine new child sponsorships, as well as great support for the SEED enterprises !!
Thank you all for allowing God to use VBC to Bless others  🙂
