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 –

This week Pastor Ed will bring us back to the Book of Hebrews, Chapter 9, and share how this Pastor/writer is trying to convey that it’s time for these new Believers to embrace “out with the “OLD” and IN with the “NEW”.

What about US – maybe it’s time for us to do so as well !!  (Hope you’ll come and see if that’s true for YOU).

***  NEW to VBC – YOU are INVITED to stay after church for a quick LUNCH with the Pastors upstairs in the Fellowship Hall !!

We will share a little bit about VBC and answer any questions you might be wondering about.  HOPE to SEE YOU THERE !

God is indeed doing a NEW thing at VBC-come and BE BLESSED this Sunday !!

Other Exciting Happenings  !!
