Dear VBC Family –

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with JOY.  (Psalm 30:11)

HAPPY 3rd Sunday of Advent to ALL !!

This Sunday Pastor Robin will share on God’s gift of JOY to the World  – the LORD has come !  

We will share in the lighting of the Advent candle of JOY, as well as celebrate BAPTISM and the welcome of NEW MEMBERS.

KIDS – be sure to come to SS this week as you will continue to prepare for the Christmas Program which will be held on Sunday, Dec. 23rd at the 10:30 Service.

***  You won’t believe the transformation our Sanctuary has undergone to become the CITY OF BETHLEHEM !!

We sure hope to see you all at A NIGHT in BETHLEHEM this Saturday (December 15th) from 2 – 4pm.  

What a great event to INVITE a FRIEND !!  

(Don’t worry, Bethlehem will still be “open” on Sunday morning – so come and WORSHIP the Lord in the “Little Town of Bethlehem” !!

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 !!
