Sing the praises of the Lord, you His faithful people; praise His holy name. (Psalm 30:4)
Dear VBC Family –
This week Pastor Ed will CLOSE THE DOOR on our sermon series on the Book of Hebrews. (in preparation for our Advent Series called GOD WITH US which will begin December 1st !) Pastor Ed will finish chapter 13 – challenging us to
“continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise !”
Join in the Fellowship of Believers as we raise up the ONE worthy of our PRAISE.
As you are already aware, last week Benjamin and Laura Dowe had a devastating barn fire resulting in a complete loss.
In addition to the barn, they lost hundreds of bales of hay, haying equipment, and many power tools. Many of you have been asking how we can come beside them in love and support. With that in mind we will be taking a LOVE OFFERING this Sunday to show our support and to assist them in their recovery. Checks can be made out to VBC – we will tally everything and present them with one offering.
THANK YOU for LOVING OTHERS as you do !!
CAN you SEE it – can you FEEL it ???
Our MIGHTY GOD is on the MOVE at VBC !
Join us as we give THANKS for HIS MANY BLESSINGS !!
We are SO HAPPY to report that we dropped off eighty-six Operation Christmas Child shoe-box gifts at the Samaritan’s Purse regional collection center !! Praise God !! We also found out that it is NOT TOO LATE to participate, as the collection center will still be receiving boxes THIS SUNDAY till 2pm. So – if you would still like to be a part of this awesome ministry feel free to bring in boxes this Sunday and Pastor Ed will get them to the collection center right after church.
The 2020 Nomination Forms are due back on Sunday December 1st. There is a box on the back table for completed forms.
If you were not here to get a packet last week – I attached a file below.
THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who is participating in the ANGEL TREE Ministry gifts !!!
We are so excited to partner with them for the first time – and for the opportunity to Bless children right here in our local communities.
