Dear VBC Family –

Looks like Sunday will be a GREAT DAY to come and WORSHIP the LORD !!

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name; Worship the Lord in the splendor of His Holiness.  (Psalm 29:2)

This week Pastor Ed will continue our series on PRAYER with a look at what is said to be the Greatest of all Biblical Prayers – The Lord’s Prayer (but not the one you’re thinking of !) .  Come with an open HEART toward the Father and be challenged to “pray as Jesus prayed.”

Hope you’ll join us this SATURDAY at 7pm for the Sullivan County Pregnancy Support Center DESSERT FUNDRAISER, being held at VBC !!

It’s a GREAT CAUSE – and a GREAT TIME !!

Be sure to check out the new STAIR-LIFT which was installed in the main stairwell this week !  See Pastor Ed for a quick tutorial 🙂

PARENTS – please talk to your kids about it’s use being only for those in need  🙂

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

PRAYER NEEDED:

Please continue to pray for baby Willow and baby Jedidiah – as well as for the THREE babies on the way to families of VBC !! (and 2 grand-babies 🙂

Being homebound/sick is sure lonely – please consider making a phone call or paying a visit to someone you haven’t seen in a while at VBC.
