Dear VBC Family –

In His Name the nations will put their HOPE.  (Matthew 12:21)

HAPPY 1st Sunday of Advent to ALL !!

Join us this Sunday as Ralph Bressler bring us a message of HOPE in celebration of the first Sunday of Advent.   The sanctuary was beautifully decorated this week for the Christmas season (thank you ALL helpers 🙂 – and we will have the lighting of the Advent candle of HOPE.

Please return your NOVEMBER THANKS-Giving envelopes this Sunday as we help support the work of WMI Projects around the world.

We are SO THANKFUL for a church (YOU !) that allows God to use them to reach THOSE IN NEED FAR beyond their walls !!

(If you are placing a check inside make it out to VBC and put WMI Giving in the memo).

There are SIGN-UP sheets on the bulletin board down the hall if you would like to help with this INCREDIBLE OUTREACH !

It’s WINTER and there are MANY in our community without warm coats, hats, gloves, boots ….

Please take a moment to clean out a closet or two and bring these items with you to church so we can distribute them LOCALLY.

Just place them in the back of the Sanctuary near the Giving Tree 🙂   THANK YOU !!

Our God is SO WORTHY of our PRAISE !!
