MOVIE NEWS:

The movie OVERCOMER is at the Middletown Galleria theater for a few more days – definitely worth seeing !!! 

OVERCOMER is an inspiring family film filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor, and a ton of heart.  The Kendrick Brothers return to theaters with their newest feature following FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and the # 1 box office hit WAR ROOM. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett, and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson.

On Friday, October 11 at 6:30pm, we will be showing the feature film PILGRIM’S PROGRESS at VBC.   A free-will offering will be taken for the ministry that produced the film to help them translate it into multiple languages to share around the world.

It’s Time to Begin Collecting for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD !!

Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has collected more than 168 million shoeboxes packed with toys and other fun items, and delivered them to boys and girls in need around the world in partnership with local churches. Many boys and girls who receive shoebox gifts also enroll in The Greatest Journey, our 12-lesson follow-up discipleship program, where they learn to follow Christ and share Him with others. Millions of boys and girls have participated in this dynamic course so far.  NOW is the time for us to begin COLLECTING ITEMS which we will later PACK into SHOEBOX GIFTS.

Here are items you can be on the LOOKOUT for now:

Small stuffed animals, Misc. accessories (hair ties/bows, sunglasses, jewelry …); Hygiene Items (brush/comb, bar soap, wash cloths, toothbrush, (no toothpaste allowed); and craft items.

There is a COLLECTION BOX in the church !  THANK YOU SO MUCH !!
