Dear VBC Family –

We MISS YOU ALL !!  (Feels like we’ve been away for a long time !)

This week Pastor Ed will talk about this RACE we’re in called CHRISTIANITY – and what it will take to make it to the FINISH LINE !!

Remember – there will NOT be regular Sunday School this Sunday.

We will have our ANNUAL SOCIETY MEETING this Sunday at 9am in the Sanctuary – and there will be a special kid’s activity in the Fellowship Hall so parents and teachers can attend the Annual Meeting.

ALL are welcome to attend this annual meeting, however only those who are members of VBC are allowed to cast a vote during the meeting.

We hope you will join with your VBC Family for a CELEBRATION LUNCHEON immediately following the Worship Service to celebrate all God has done through the ministry of VBC throughout this past year.

Sure hope you’ll join us this week to WORSHIP the only One WORTHY of ALL PRAISE !!

PRAYER NEEDED:

Update from Robbi P.:  Just an update on my sister, Tabitha.  They inserted a chest tube again.  She has been in a great deal of pain.  She is emotionally exhausted. Please pray for a complete healing.  Thank you.

Please pray for Kate Demayo’s son Caleb who had a surgical procedure this week.  Pray that God takes away all his discomfort and gives him a very speedy recovery.

Please pray for the MANY families fighting the sickness, as well as for all those in our VBC Family still recovering from recent surgery, getting through PT, and needing a complete restoration.
