Dear VBC Family –

This week Pastor Ed will continue our study of the sermon we call the Book of Hebrews.

The author/preacher of this sermon has another “warning” for his flock that we surely need to heed in our own lives today

as many people continue to walk a “Tightrope” kind of Faith-walk.  What about YOU ?!

Come and find out for yourself as we EXALT our MIGHTY GOD – and WORSHIP HIM who is WORTHY !!

Other Exciting Happenings  !!

VBC Day of FASTING, PRAISE, and PRAYER !!

Hope you’ll join us this TUESDAY (August 6) by FASTING/PRAYING during the day – and then coming out to our 

PRAYER/PRAISE CELEBRATION at 6:30pm. 

TOGETHER, we will prepare our hearts to PRAISE GOD for HIS MANY BLESSINGS, 

as well as PRAY for our FAMILIES, COMMUNITIES, NATION, and CHURCH.

Upcoming Missionary visits:

Sept. 1 – Thom and Sherry Cahill, Tanzania

Sept. 15 – Ken and letty Myers, Kenya

Hope you’ll join us as we “Worship the Lord of the HARVEST” this Sunday !

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 !!
