5 Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you;
if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith. II Corinthians 13:5
Dear VBC Family –
Join us Sunday as we gather to CELEBRATE JESUS CHRIST – God’s gift to us !!
This week Pastor Robin will share God’s Word by challenging us to an “EXAMINATION” !!
(Why not come before the GREAT PHYSICIAN for a TRUE EXAMINATION !?)
Also this week we will Celebrate the Lord’s Supper together.
COME and JOIN in the Fellowship of Believers as we raise up the ONE worthy of our PRAISE !!
HELP NEEDED !!
We are in need of additional staff for the CHILDREN’S CHURCH Program which provides an age-appropriate place for kids (4yrs. old-3rd grade) to learn and grow in Christ. It takes place in the Fellowship Hall during the 2nd half of our Worship Service. Leaders will serve on a 6 week rotation. See Rowena for more information and to help keep this vital ministry going 🙂
*** Until we have additional help we will have to suspend Children’s Church. (hopefully temporarily)
Be a BLESSING to our MISSIONARY FAMILIES !!
The influence of VBC extends WORLDWIDE through several MISSIONARIES that we support. One of the ways we ENCOURAGE and remember our missionaries and their families is by sending BIRTHDAY and ANNIVERSARY gifts (Amazon gift cards) to each family member. (We have had MUCH feedback from our missionary families of just how special it is to remembered like this !)
This year we will be supporting 4 missionary families (8 adults, 5 kids, and 4 anniversaries 🙂 We want to continue the Birthday/Anniversary gifts in 2020 – and YOU can easily be a part of it ! Just place a check for $25, $50 … in the offering plate and put “gift cards” in the memo. THANKS for LOVING OTHERS as you do !
