Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for He is our God and we are the people of His pasture, the flock under His care.   Psalm 95

Dear VBC Family –

We are delighted to welcome Missionaries Thom and Sherry Cahill to VBC this Sunday !!  Thom and Sherry have served as missionaries the last couple years in Kenya and will soon be headed to Tanzania to begin a new ministry there.  Come and hear what the Lord has already done through their work in Africa, and the plans He has for their future in Tanzania.

Come and BE BLESSED by what God IS DOING and WILL DO this Sunday !!

Other Exciting Happenings  !!



The movie OVERCOMER is at the Middletown Galleria theater for a few more days – definately 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.
