Sunday’s Comin’ (2/24/2019)

Dear VBC Family –

Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. (Psalm 100:2)

Join us Sunday as we gather to “Come before Him with Joyful songs.” 

As we continue our series on PRAYER this week, Pastor Ed will ask us to consider the question, “Am I an “EVEN IF” Follower of Jesus ?”

Are you “NEWER” to VBC ??  Join the Pastors THIS SUNDAY for the Welcome to VBC Luncheon at 12 noon.

Don’t let a little RAIN keep you away – the ‘SON’ will be shining brightly inside !!

PS:  Please say a prayer for the 7 “Young Teens” and 2 adult chaperones who are off to the Youth IGNITE Weekend at Spruce Lake Retreat Center in Canadensis, Pa.  Please pray for God to do a MIGHTY WORK in ALL HEARTS !!  (and for safety 🙂

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Here’s a chance to BE A BLESSING to the SULLIVAN COUNTY PREGNANCY SUPPORT CENTER !

Our local SCPSC is on the FRONT LINES of ministry to moms, babies (born and unborn) and their families – as satan is trying to “steal, kill, and destroy” them.  You can help them by visiting the GIVING TREE in the back of our Sanctuary.  Look over the “needs” on the tree – pick one (two, three …) – put the slip and your financial gift in the envelope, and put it in the SCPSC box.  That’s how simple it is to BE A BLESSING to OTHERS !!!   Thank you  🙂

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