“Sacrifice thank offerings to God,  fulfill your vows to the Most High,

and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”  (Psalm 50:14-15)

Please pray for Al Hudz as he begins his long drive to his new job in Texas. May the Lord fill him to overflowing, and provide safe and easy travel each day.

Join us for an OUTDOOR PRAYER/PRAISE gathering at VBC on Wednesday, June 3, at 7:00 pm.

The gathering will be held on the back lawn near the playground. We love each other and have great respect for all those still on the front lines of this current pandemic. We want to ensure  each other’s safety and show respect for our community. For these reasons, we are asking everyone to follow these simple safety procedures.

  1. If you feel ill please stay home until you feel better.
  2. Please wear a mask at all times for this event.
  3. Please refrain from any contact with others.
  4. When you join our prayer circle, please maintain a 6-foot physical distance from others.
  5. Only bring children that will be able to participate and stand by your side for the entire 45-minute event.

Thank you for your cooperation.  It is important that we show our neighbors we respect their safety in this crisis.

VBC Meetings Update:

We are conducting some of our small group studies and ministry meetings in person at VBC with appropriate safety protocols. We will continue to use  Zoom video conferencing for those who wish to continue to join that way.  We will continue to produce recorded Services and Sunday School teachings.  We have several prayer teams that are beginning to make rounds to encourage you. They will remain outside and at an appropriate distance. They will call first to make an appointment.

Reach out to someone in the VBC Family and say “Hello”.

Our Re-Launch Team is meeting weekly to plan the course forward and will keep you informed of any changes.

Adult Bible Study: Pastor Robin and Kelly R. are leading the “Signs of the Times” study on Sunday mornings.
A video teaching will be posted on the VBC website and YouTube channel.
Those who want to discuss these ideas can join a Zoom call on Sundays at 6:30 p.m. using the link:    https://zoom.us/j/91315690177

***********************************
1. Please let us know if we can help you in any way. Contact us if you need groceries, help with shopping or have prayer needs.
2. Kids don’t forget to join Katie on Facebook LIVE Monday through Friday at 9:30 am for her Daily Bible moments.
3. Start or join a Discovery Bible Study.

*********************************** 

A Discovery Bible Study is a simple   study that requires no preparation. It can be used to empower small groups and families to have their own time of Bible study together. It is also a great way to connect with someone outside the VBC Family.

The essence of this Bible study approach is to read a passage of Scripture together, and then reflect on four questions

  1. What do these verses say about God?
  2. What do these verses say about people?
  3. What should I start or stop doing in response to the text?
  4. Who is someone I will share these discoveries with this week?

*********************************** 

The next Together Family Conference online event will be held on Sunday, June 21, at 7 pm

The Lifetouch Picture Directory photograph sessions have been re-scheduled. Family pictures will be taken on September 23 and September 24 from 2-9 pm.

*********************************** 

Continue to pray for all those who are sick and suffering from the Covid19 virus.
Continue to pray for those whose livelihoods have been affected by the many restrictions imposed on them.
Reach out to someone in the VBC Family to check on them, offer encouragement, and ask if they need anything.
Reach out to a neighbor, co-worker, or friend, and give them hope through Jesus.
Get connected in one of our online groups and join us on Sunday so we can worship Jesus together.
