Sing the praises of the Lord, you His faithful people; praise His holy name.  (Psalm 30:4)

Dear VBC Family –

I (Pastor Ed) am back from out west – thank you for your thoughts and prayers as we traveled.

Please continue to pray for Pastor Robin and the group in Israel.  (Got several good reports from them !)

This week Ralph Bressler will be bringing the message from Hebrews chapter 12 – challenging us to “Run a Good Race !”

Come an be encouraged (and challenged) in your own “race” – and join in the Fellowship of Believers as we raise up the ONE worthy of our PRAISE.

Impt. Note:  If you want to be REALLY EARLY to church this week – DON’T read any further.

******  HOWEVER, if you want to be right ON TIME – move your clocks back ONE HOUR on SATURDAY NIGHT as 

Daylight Saving’s time has come to an end  🙁

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 !!

Prayer Needed:

Please continue to be in prayer for Kelly Drann’s mom.  Praise God that she has shown some improvement, but remains in critical care.  Please pray for Kelly and family as they remain with their mom.

Please pray for Isaiah Liciaga (Carol’s grandson).  He is in much pain from an impacted wisdom tooth complicated by strep throat.  Please pray for healing and good medical care.

Hope you’re considering supporting the Samaritan’s Purse OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD Shoe-box Gift ministry.
